Many Graduation Thanks

Here are a couple of the thank you cards I made these for my daughter. She needed at least 20, so I had to do something that was easy to duplicate. I actually enjoyed making these because I was working with her favorite color (PURPLE). By the way I don't know if you noticed but it is my favorite too! smile

I thought I would never use all this purple paper. I found it on a clearance isle at Michaels, lonely and abandoned, so I just had to bring it home to my purple paper collection. I must admit that right now I am actually feeling relieved that I found a use for it. My new philosophy about paper is that it makes me happier to use it than to have it stored in my collection-- provided I keep a good picture of the project.
( What a concept?? That I should actually use the paper I buy!! )

Stamps: Grad Cap and Diploma (Penny Black) , Many Thanks (SU)
Printed Paper: Sarabooks Amethyst paper and cardstock ( Hot Off the Press)
Cardstock: Purple(SU),White card(Georgia Pacific)

Very nice cards!! Love the combo of the sets that way and the PURPLE paper usage! I, too, have been on a "use what I have"'s kind of fun and soon I'll have enough room to go shopping again! LOL!
