Graduation and Birdie Stamping

Hello!!! I am so glad it is Friday!!!

I finally finished my daughter's college graduation invitations. They are super simple and went quick enough. I stamped them in her school colors. Making invitations saved a bunch of cash!

Next are a couple of stamping projects I made for the Birdie Swap I participated in. I really like how they turned out.
The tags with the branch and bird...I saw a similar sample of this in the new Stampin' Up catalog and copied it (shhhh!!!). Love the colors!

I showed this before. I made 2 of these, one for me and one for my swap partner (Terri of Grace Notes). All the stamps are from Stampin' Up and I found the frame at Michael's for $1).

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I am sooo glad it's here! Tomorrow we will have nice weather and then it goes downhill from there, back to winter-like weather...yuck!

Hey Kimmie! I LOVE the birdie tags!!! I have been looking for a bird on a branch stamp and have not seen them anywhere. I popped into Michael's tonight after Target and their stamps are so expensive! I was disappointed cause their dollar section was cleaned out, too. I love the graduation invites so much..your daughter will love them! It is freezing here and I thought the car was gonna blow off the road! Yikes!

Love ya chica! Angie

p.s. I wish we were next door neighbors, too! How fun would that be!

Terri said...

I am thrilled! The tags are so much better in person.

Kim, your daughter's graduation invitations are perfect! I love the simple design. Congratulations! You must be so very proud!

The invitations look great! And I really like those bird tags, what's the name of that set?

Joy said...

Tags are so cute and the invitations - so classy!

Linda said...

Cute tags...I copy from the catalog. In fact, I save them from year to year to use just for the patterns!
Have a great weekend!

You have been really busy! As always your work looks beautifully professional. I have your little tote with the pack of cards that you sent hanging on the bulletin board by my computer. Don't know if I'll ever be able to give them away to someone else, lol.

Congratulations on your daughter's graduation. My youngest, Holly, and her hubby are finishing up this may and then moving to Texas :(
