Two weekends ago I went to a stamping retreat at my upline’s house – she calls it Weekend at Wendy’s and I think this is our 3 or 4 year to do this.  It is such a fun weekend of stamping and sharing with a group of women that have the same passion that I do.  There were 10 of us this year from Georgia and Texas.  Our weekend included a shoebox swap, a group meeting with a card swap and we made fabric purses.  So for the next little while I’ll be sharing projects from our weekend.

I’m going to start with a graduation card that we made as part of one of the shoebox swap projects – we created a card holder using one of the Thoroughly Modern file folders and a couple of cards to go inside.  My son, Kyle, is graduating in just a few weeks so I have Graduation on my mind.

This card was designed by Nancy Hewitt and uses the new Go, Graduation stamp set and the Happy Grad stamp that is sold individually in the back of the Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini catalog.

The card opens and has a pocket to hold cash or a check to give to a Graduate.  The stamp with all the feet works perfectly for this card.  I love it and plan to make some more in our school colors for friends that we need to give gifts to.

Have a great day!
