Great Grad Congratulations!

This is the first time I've used this "Great Grads" set by Stampin Up! I purchased this set last month especially for making my graduation cards this year and now I'm rushing to get them done today when I need them. Go figure!

I needed some inspiration, so I went to Splitcoaststampers and searched the gallery for cards using this set. One of my favorites was this card by Sharon Johnson. She has a terrific tutorial on her blog "No Time To Stamp" and other than changing the size and designer paper, my card is pretty much a total CASE of her card.

The second photo is of the inside of my money holder card and the side tab envelope. I've enclosed the folded cash in a piece of white paper that I stamped and wrote our personal congratulations on.

I've lots to accomplish today, so better run... have a warm and wonderful weekend everyone and thanks so much for blogging by!

Supplies ~
Rubber Stamps: Stampin Up! Great Grads
Paper: basic black cardstock, whisper white, black/white designer paper
Ink: Versafine black onyx, clear embossing powder

Very nice, well done! CONGRATULATIONS to ALL Grads!

Hey young Grads
good show I say
you've done it now
you've showed us how

You've had some good times
You've made some good friends
now some will go off
to do it again

So good luck in college
You can do it
Have a real wild time
but don't over do it

Try to make friends fast
many of the early ones
will be the ones
who last

Unless you love
to get up early
don't schedule your classes
way too early

And try to get to class
as much as you can
you'll be glad you did
then you'll deserve a cold can

But try not to party
too much before class
you'll more likely attend
and you won't be an ass

If you fail the easy Calc
don't take the harder one
just keep your eye on the ball
between all the fun

You'll be entering
sort of a fantasy land
of reading, writing, and thinking
with those who can lend a hand

So, do your best with grades
but at least finish the task
and soon another graduation
will come at last...

and HAVE FUN!!!
