Is it Friday yet?

Seems like I can't seem to keep my head above water lately. Life is just busy busy busy. I could really use some major rest and relaxation, but I guess I'll have to settle for new carpet! Our new carpet is finally getting installed today. Tom and I tore out all of our old carpet about a week or so ago and I can't wait to have nice soft cushioned carpet under my feet again instead of dirty, splinter filled wood.

I posted these cards on the DRS Designs blog yesterday but I thought I would post them here in case any of you missed them. I made these last week during the Stampin Out Alzheimers challenges. DRS Designs has a ton of really great graduation images and sentiments, you should really check them out!
All three of my cards use the same 2 graduation stamps from DRS. I wanted to show you that even with limited supplies you can still create a multitude of unique cards. I also purposely didn't use any designer paper. DRS has a ton of fabulous background stamps (including this graduation background) that make creating your own designer paper a breeze!




Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are all having a great week!

All of these are great but I think my favorite is the yellow and black one - it is very striking and bold! Love that sentiment it was one we heard and saw often when our dd graduated.
