Graduation Cards-Hailey and Jared

Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
Day 8 of my Hummingbird update.  Here's the latest pic of my little hummers........
Can you SERIOUSLY see both of them????????  Spike is on the right facing to the TOP of the nest and Gizmo is on the left facing to the BOTTOM of the nest......
I just can't believe in ONE DAY how their features CHANGED BIG TIME! AND....HOW BIG they got (in one day!).  It just proves that Momma Hummer is doing a great job of getting these little guys ready for flight next week..............

My card share today are the two graduation cards I sent to Hailey and her older brother Jared.  First up is Hailey's card......
Hailey's school colors are Purple and Gold ....... and it didn't take me long to come up with this card layout.
I stamped the congrats sentiment from the "Delightful Dozen" stamp set and used some retired Lavendar Lace (retired) and Daffodil Delight cardstock for the bottom portion of my card......
And grabbed some non-SU purple glitter paper for the stars that I punched out.  I used a retired "Starring You" stamp set and stamped lots of stars all over the top portion of Hailey's card.  Like the way this card turned out......and since Purple is one of Hailey's favorite colors......She will LOVE IT
This is the card I sent to Jared.  He graduated from the 8th grade this year and is heading into High School this fall.  UNBELIEVALBE!   Jared's school colors are also Purple and Gold.......
So I used the layout that my good friend Kris had us make at our April FU(Fabulously Unique) card in a box gathering and figured it was the PERFECT for Jared.  
I ended up adding a couple extra pieces of DSP to the inside of his card and a special little message of congratulations on a JOB WELL DONE!
Thanks for joining me today.......I'll be back tomorrow to share the cards I sent to Steven and Brooke.  Hope you can come back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!


  1. No way! They are getting so big. WOW. Is the nest on a table? They look like real feathers now too! This is just the neatest thing ever!

    Your cards are awesome. I love the color combination. I absolutely love the design (layering arrows) on the second one and the personal note is soooooo sweet. Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. Sorry.....I normally comment as Lynn G. but forgot to change it. I think I am still asleep.

  3. love these graduation cards . . . perfect color combo! giz and spike are looking more like birds and less like fluff every day.

  4. Very nice Grad cards! ..but confused is Hailey Graduating? Or just giving her brother a card? I can't believe the size of these baby hummers. What a difference a day makes! Enjoy the weekend! <3
