Either way, it's a winner!

This first card is one I made at a Stamp A Stack. (all supplies are SU)
 It's a nice, simple card for a guy in my opinion.  
Unless you have a girl that is into motorcross. Which is totally possible.

This next card, I changed the stamps and the layout, but kept the colors. 
And now, I think it can be for a female. :-)

I thought using a red background would be ok. Obviously not. Sorry.
Lessoned learned.

A visit to Michigan to deliver a graduation card

No I didn't really travel 650 miles to deliver a grad card, LOL.  But my husband and I, along with my aunt and her husband, traveled in July to visit my uncle and his family in Michigan.  We timed it to coincide with my cousins daughter's grad party.  Which, I won't do next time. I mean, so glad we went, no regrets there. But having a grad party with us visiting put more stress on my cousin.  I got to meet my Great Uncle Lindsy and his family, he hasn't seen me since I was 2.

I love these girls!!!!

Lisa's daughter is the one that was graduating from high school.

Thanks for letting me share.  Wonderful memories were made that trip. I hope to make another trip in a couple of years.  My family is so large, and so spread out across the U.S. that it will take a few years to be able to travel and visit everyone.  Which is what I plan on doing! LOL

Here is the card I made for our graduating young lady........

A little detail never hurts.
(on the inside)

Congratulations Taylor!

Fill in the blank -

A bad night of card making is better than _______________.

I finally get back to making cards, getting out of the slump I was in, and I mess two of them up.  Yes, I can hide the mistakes. But still. I was looking forward to getting all inky, and then.......... *sigh*

I will tell you that I made a male card into a female card.  So proud of me!  I will post it Thursday night.
