I was asked if I had a graduation card in my stash for a friend who buys my cards and I didn’t *gasp* so I made a real quick one to give her and share with you. It’s been a while since I’ve known someone who graduated from high school, got married or had a baby so I don’t always have these types of cards sitting in my boxes! Maybe I should change that soon! Since I didn’t know the school colors, I went with the traditional yet classic black & white theme, I like the simplicity of the card and hope she will too. I made some simple score lines with my scor-pal for some added interest on the left side and bottom.
I want to share that I have taken a break from sewing lately too, just haven’t felt in the mood and I was thoroughly distracted for the past 3+ weeks reading The Hunger Games trilogy. Those books were riveting, so exciting that I wanted to stay up all night to read! I ended up reading at work during my lunch, taking them with me in case I was somewhere I could read a few lines, read at home including nearly every night before going to bed. Sewing will resume real soon because I have to get working back on my quilt in my Quilt Class and I have the Friday Night Sew in scheduled for this Friday evening. Yea!! I am super excited mostly because I will be using my new sewing machine I bought a few weeks ago! I have used it once and that thing sews like a dream, I’m so excited! So far there are 103 of us sewing crazies signed up! Won’t you join us?? We will share on our blogs on Saturday what we worked on and there’s always a fun giveaway for a random participant!
