Reach for the Stars


With Graduation right around the corner, it's time to make some cards! I really don't think I have to make that many this year, but it's always nice to have some extras on hand. The little town where I live actually has a school - and are you ready for this? - They usually have a graduation class of about 15 kids (sometimes alot less)!!! No kidding. Very small town and school. We have a post office, bank branch, and convenience store - that's it folks! As I said VERY SMALL! I can't believe it still has the little bank branch - I imagine it's been there since the early 1900's though. Anyway.........

This is for the challenge at Crazy4Challenges (C4C35). The paper I used was Brilliant Blue, White, and DP from CTMH. The sentiment is from Well Scripted and the stars from Paper Studio. The stars were stamped in various colors, cut out and then adhered. I used the Oval Nestie and some brads and it was completed.

Thanks for stopping by...............

Love the colors! I understand the small town thing! When I grew up, our bank didn't use account numbers on the checks and you couldn't write one in the *city* because there were no numbers at the bottom..LOL!

Wow - a class of 15! That's amazing!! Proms must be really small - huh?
I love that sentiment. I think that is the most beautiful "Congratulations" that I've seen and it looks perfect on that card w/ all the stars!
Great work :)

Wonderful card! Perfect for graduation. That is one small class- my husband had 8 kids in his 8th grade grad class...but went to the High School 'in town' where there were at least 100 kids in the class!

Lynn, you have made me yearn for small town life!
I love the fact that you made the congratulations stamp look entirely different! The stars clustered around the edge of the oval was a brilliant idea.
fabulous card - as always
