Daryk is a fisherman. He competes in tournaments in state and out of state. He has a sponsor, boat, truck, all the bells and whistles. This is his card:
The stamp is Magnolia's Edwin Wants a Hug. I printed a graduation gown and hat from a clip art search. I then altered the gown so that the arms were spread. I traced it onto blue cardstock and cut it out. I also paper pieced the hat. The fishing pole and diploma were also clipart cutouts. The fishing line and tassel are gray jute. The background stamp is Hero Arts and the "Congrats" is Close to My Heart.
Devan graduated from 8th grade. Here is the card I made for her:
The image is Happy Spring Tilda. The banner is a diecut from Tim Holtz. "Hooray" is from Close to My Heart. It actually has more words on the stamp, but I just used the one.
Here is the inside of both:
I just handwrote my sentiments. I do not have any stamps to fit with graduation themes. Daryk's said: Now that you've hooked your diploma, you're on to bigger and better fish to catch.
I found a challenge at the Ribbon Girl to enter. Here is the link to it and other challenges:
