Congrats Grads!

Hello Friends!
It's another frosty day here in the Northeast - temps aren't forecasted to make it out of the 20's :(  I've started to chip away at my looooong list of card-making "To Do's" and while they may or may not qualify for any contests I thought I'd share them here anyway.

Last month two of our nieces completed their undergraduate degrees - no hoopla and fanfare like there was for their high school graduations.  The family is so proud of both girls!  My supply of graduation-related stamps is woefully limited but thankfully they live in two different states so I knew I could get away with using the same card design:)  The first card is for our niece Stephanie who graduated from Mansfield University in Pennsylvania with an undergrad degree in education.  Turns out the school's colors are the same as my high school alma mater's!  She was also involved in the student band so I added a few musical notes (Stampendous):

I don't have a spiral notebook page die so I had to carefully tear off a sheet of watercolor paper.  The sentiments are from the Paper Smooches set Sentiment Sampler and the graduation cap is by Vap! Scrap.
Other Supplies Used:  Echo Park Paper Dots & Stripes pp, Papertrey ink white cs, brad and paperclip from stash

A little change in colors and icon and here you have the second card for our niece Kelly who graduated from Clemson University in South Carolina - Go Tigers!!! :

Other Supplies Used:  Life is Beautiful Butternut Souffle pp, Papertrey ink white cs, Stampendous Paw stamp, brad and paperclip from stash

Stephanie's taking some time off to work before applying to a graduate degree program and Kelly's applied for dental school so we're hoping she's admitted into the program.  Does anyone know of any cute tooth stamps out there????

Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to comment!
