The graduating class of 2011

The card for today is for a graduation. I like to try and use the school colors when I can to make it more personal. This card is for a graduate of NCCU (North Carolina Central  University).  Their colors are maroon and gray. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between maroon and Burgundy? I  am thinking they are in the same color family but one is a little darker. This card is for a man so I hope the ribbon doesn't make it seem to girly. I thought it would look more formal with the ribbon but I could be wrong. I used the Fancy tags two and three from nestabilities,the 5x7 holly ribbons folder by cuttlebug and card stock is bazzill.

I know that I have been missing a few days but I had a lot of Mother's day cards to finish. I did a couple of friendship cards also and now it is time to think about what to make for Father's day. I have been looking at different blogs for inspiration and of course I checked out Becca Feekens to see what she comes up with. I have always wondered how to make  borders come out even using all the border punches that I have. Well today see shows you how to figure it out with a tutorial. I have a couple of ideas that I want to try it out on. I will try to post some more cards later.

Another Mother's Day Card

I have been missing for a few days making a lot of cards for a lot of people. I  have sold or given all my Mother's Day cards away so I need to make some more really quick. I have a few ideas that I want to put on paper so I will get started in a few. Mother's Day will b here in a minute so it''s time to wrap it up. We have had a real cold snap here. Can't believe it got down to 39 degrees in May! We had to bundle up at the baseball game like we where at a football game....too COLD! Anyway here is another card to add to the stack. Have a good day.

Making progress

This is what I have so far for today. As fast as I make then they are gone. I found this stamp at Hobby lobby. The paper I used are napkins that I have collected. I have been watching Becca so I get plenty of ideas for using my nestabilities. Got some more to finish up and add the verses to the inside. I will post some more tomorrow.
 Here are the supplies that I used.
Labels twenty one

Coloring with copics

These are all the designs that I colored today to get ready to go onto cards. I am getting better with practice so it doesn't take me a long. Now I have to decide what colors to use with each one. I have set a goal to finish all these cards tomorrow. On top of that I have four birthday cards to make. This will make for a full day. Spring break is over so that will give me some extra time without distractions. I will post some of the cards later.
