{ Office Accoutrement } Congrats Grad!

For as long as this card took me to complete, I'm still not totally lovin' it. I think it's because I struggle to do the distressed freestyle. You'll appreciate this...I had the "congrats grad!" stamped on the memo at an angle the first time and I had to redo it until it was straight. LOL Did someone say OCD?? :)

I've got several graduation cards to make for next weekend, so thought I better get rollin'! So, this is the first and you'll want to stay tuned for more to come!

My DSL connection has been off & on today because of the stormy weather we're getting here in Nebraska. Talk about withdrawals from the internet!

Supplies: Basic Grey Hang 10 background paper, Stampin' Up Office Accoutrement & Riveting sets. Basic Brown classic ink. Brown cardstock put through Cuttlebug with Tiny Mosaic embossing folder. Punches used: SU Spiral Binding, 1/2", 1-1/4", 1-3/8" circles, corner rounder. (I love my punches!)

For those of you who were wondering how our "Scrap Day" (that's STEEL scrap, not paper scrap :) went today (see previous post), we got rained on and we had over an hour delay because of the lightning. But, we still checked in over 400 vehicles with steel scrap, old appliances, tvs, computers, aluminum cans, etc. It's amazing! On Monday, our Environmental Coordinator will have the tonnage info to report. Such a great cause that I'm glad to be a part of. :)

I think the card came out adorable! Isn't it funny how some cards come together super quick and others you play with and play with....

Pam, it's a terrific card, although I completely understand about needing the 'congrats grad' to be straight. I'm with you on that one! LOL!
