Monday Challenge #56 - Congratulations!

There are so many wonderful milestones in life to celebrate with loved ones and friends!  This week is graduation week for us!  My youngest just graduated from Kindergarten - a bittersweet moment for me.  Later this summer we may have a wedding to celebrate as well!  New babies, new jobs, promotions at work, so many other special occasions that give us an excuse to make and send handmade cards!

This weeks challenge:  Congratulations!
(Graduation, new baby, new job, weddings, etc.)

Gwen's card is absolutely adorable!!  I love the sweet baby with her rosy cheeks!

I love how Gwen inked and matted everything!  This sentiment is from the Inside & Out #2 stamp set (Now Back in stock! Yay!)

The all white combo on GiGi's shaped card is just gorgeous!!

She gathered snow white Crinkle ribbon to make ruffles and then added a beautiful bow - stunning!

Inside of GiGi's card:

Kate made this fun card for her daughter who just accepted her offer to McMaster University (aka "Mac").  I love the play on words and the fun colors Kate used for her card!

What a fun idea to add a sentiment on top of a sentiment die cut!


I love the banner on Amber's cute card!!   The doodling around the giraffe is fabulous!  It really makes that Giraffe stand out!

I love how Amber used her ribbon to join the two patterned papers!

Amber made these fun cards for all of her Preschool Graduates! 

Each child got a card with their hair color!  I love how we can personalize handmade cards!


What a fun card!  I love how Robin's card folds and that tassle is so pretty!

Robin found a fun tutorial on YouTube for this card and couldn't resist trying it out!

I love the stitching!!


I love the soft colors and beautiful flowers and swirls on Marlene's wedding card!

Inside of Marlene's gorgeous card:

I love how Marlene added a pearl to the center of her beautiful bow! So pretty!
