I started off with a shaker card for my project today but while my boys and I were enjoying dinner last night, my dopey puppy Nova decided to eat it a bit (she really loves glitter!) Here is a small picture of it so you can see some of it...


So, after dinner, and after I made a great new shirt to wear to baseball today, I made a new one! I couldn't make another shaker as she also ate my foam tape! UGH! 

But, all is well, because I really do love the new one I made! 



I used a kraft cardstock base and added that fun, colorful paper to the front. I used my explore to write out my sentiment using a pilot precise pen (love not having to rely on cricut pens! I don't have many colors!). I ink the edges using Crystal Blue from close to my heart. The graduation cap is from Miss Kate Cuttables and was her freebie for Friday. I attached it using some pop dots for a little dimension. 


 Up next is Alicia
She always has something amazing to share! 

Here's our line up in case you get lost.

What a cute card!! Sorry about your shaker card. I love the writing on your graduation card. Great job!!

Lisa Frederick said...

Pilot Precise Pens, huh? Totally going to have to try those, since the Cricut ones don't "lock" the caps down... and dry out fairly quickly. Beautiful card! Great hop!

Angela Corcoran said...

I've noticed that too about the cricut pens! Thought maybe I bought a bad batch! Haha! Yes, pilot precise...pack comes in a ton of colors and they are cheaper than cricut ones!

Connie Wallenbrock said...
