Con-GRAD-ulations to the Class of 2014! Whether graduating from Kindergarten or college, graduation is such a special event, something you work hard towards, and a huge accomplishment to be proud of!

In the congratulatory spirit of graduation, we have two festive cards by designer Lori Finch to share with you today. Lori created these using images and sentiments from the "Congratulations Graduate" set. Both cards have an elegant but fun look to them, so fitting for graduation. I really like how she carried the same color scheme through both cards, too, and yet they are totally different. Did you notice the little gold "14" on the ribbon on the first card? What a great way to personalize this for this year's grads!

If you are graduating this year, again we congratulate you! And if you have a loved one graduating, well, don't forget to let them know just how awesome their accomplishment is. :-)

Fluttering By

Hello, crafty friends! I hope your week is going well! This has been a super busy one for me, with my girls finishing up their last week of school for the year. It's amazing how many projects, field trips, and special events their school has managed to pack into this one little week. We might just need the whole summer vacation to recover -- ha ha! Despite busy-ness, I wanted to be sure to "flutter by" today to share a little crafty inspiration with you. This gorgeous card was made by designer Kren Kurts, using the "Fluttering By" set. I've always thought butterflies to be little miracles in and of themselves, and everytime I see one in "the wild," I am reminded anew of God's grace in our lives. Kren has created such a lovely showcase for this little miracle, with her striking color combination and that sweet swirly embossed background. The sentiment is also a great reminder to us all -- especially those of us running after the busy-ness of life (ahem) -- "The butterfly counts not months, but moments, and has time enough...."
