SU! In-Colors and Graduation card!!

Morning! :) I want to share 2 more cards from Julie's Monday night card class. The first card is using NEW SU! In-Colors and the second card we used punches to make an owl and put a CUTE grad card together!!

An added note! Right now I'm on cloud 9 and doing the Happy Dance.... I just found out I'm one of the June Mojo Monday Contest winners!! I can't believe I was selected out of 433 entries and so many super talented cards posted!! This was my card... :)

On the Happy Birthday card I CuttleBug embossed the card base using Numbers Collage and added a green button. Look at those new In-colors together... :) Don't they look great!

On the second card I added a ribbon treatment to fill in some empty space. I just LOVE this cutie patootie owl!! SO fun using the SU! punches to create this card... ENJOY!

Have a super day everyone! The sun is shining here and we are expected to warm up today. Get some stamping time in and SMILE!

Think Summer.. Michelle :)

great cards! I found your site via updates I get from the Mojo site. I have now subscribed. I love your work!

OMGosh Michelle, CONGRATULATIONS!! Well-deserved, for sure. I told you your card put mine to shame... hahahaha. It's an absolutely gorgeous, well-done card, and you sooooo deserved to win. Yay for you!!! I think this means you get a free stamp set from Verve, right? Another favorite stamp company of mine. It'll be hard to choose!

Your cards today are totally cute. I can't wait for my order to arrive... it's out for delivery to my door today, so should be there when I get home tonight. I ordered that cute animal stamp set, too. I can't wait to play.

I love the cut-out for the placement of the button, by the way. Gotta try that!

I'd better get back to work...

Love and hugs and high fives from your pal,

Hey congratulations on your win. That was a great card with so much detail and some lovely papers.

The new colors are good aren't they? When I get off my black and white train, I like the muted ones........ More expense coming up!!

Hope you're having some lovely days. Its cold here, but even winter sunshine is enough to smile about.
