Charming Graduate

Well, graduations are over... finally! We have such a big family it seems that every year there are at LEAST three-four kids either graduating from High School or College. Welllll... maybe not college... I never said we were a SMART family! LOL Just kidding! Either way... we have tons in our family and there are plenty of reasons to buy extra gifts AND cards! Rarely a weekend goes by in the summer where there isn't SOMEthing to attend for SOMEone in the family. My mother has 11 siblings on her side... my dad has 10. You do the math... my fingers AND toes are sore! LOL This card started out... and finished, I hope, as a very plain sort of card. Not to much embellishment and no to much frill. I made it for my niece... my namesake... my godchild (she is so much to me *smile*), Christina, who graduated this May from New School University in New York. She got her degree in Journalism. My favorite thing about her college is it's school color is PURPLE!! LOL Yep... see that cute little charm grad cap colored in purple??? Hee Hee I used Melanie Muenchinger's, "A Charmed Life" for the wine glass and charm. Before I cut the glass out I glazed it completely with Crystal Lacquer to make it shine. I embossed the background with my Cuttlebug and added the tag. Simple and kinda plain. But... Christina isn't much into frills and such so this seemed pretty straight forward to me. Especially since she KNOWS how much her Aunt Tina LOVES colors, frills and bling! LOL We are all pretty proud of her. She got accepted at another university to continue on and get her Masters but I'm not sure she's gonna pursue that yet, from what I hear... she is working on writing a novel in hopes of being published. I believe someone said her Professor thought she would also make a good professor herself but that she needed to be published first. So... we'll see.. and like I said... this is all just hearsay on my end. But I certainly wish her the best of luck. There is no doubt in my mind she will go far in this world. She already has! I hope you have a great day and I hope you don't have TO many parties to attend this summer. They are fun... but certainly can be costly too when you start buying those gifts. Remember... make your cards... save a bit of money. *smile* Signature

You know what, sometimes the simple cards to look at take the most time to make!!! This is a lovely card and I'm sure it will be appreciated! x
