CardzTV - Graduation Challenge

 I AM SO EXCITED!!!

I DESIGN FOR

This is my first post as a DT member for Mary over at CardzTV!!!

I have to tell you when I first started getting involved with
card making and the Cricut at the beginning of 2011,
 I found this "little" YouTube channel called CardzTV
and started getting "taught" by Mary.
I seriously watched EVERY single one of her videos!
I have learned so much from her,
practically everything I know about making cards,
I learned from her!
She inspired me - still does - and I thought to myself
(more times than once),
"I want to be just like her when I grow up"
:)

I was also so intimidated and in awe of Mary,
that I would never leave her comments,
just admired her from afar,
so now being on her team
and the fact that she knows my name
is CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY to me!!!

Anyway...

There is a new DT for CardzTV,
and they are all so extremely talented!!!
Mary also has a whole bunch of fun
and exciting challenges coming up,
so I hope you will stay tuned
and participate along with us :)

The challenge that is starting today is all about
Graduation!
We want to see all your cards and projects
that have to do with this momentous occasion!

My Project:
This is the card I made for my Dad!
He is in his 60's and finally got his Bachelor's Degree!
I am so proud of him!

I used Create A Friend for this cute little graduate
and Elegant Edges for the shaped mat.

I used Mary's "This N That" stamp set for the "Way to Go!"
LOVE this set!

The inside:
This sentiment comes from Mary's
new stamp set "Congratulations"

This set contains practically EVERY occasion you
could congratulate someone for - LOVE it!!!

Please swing on by CardzTV to see all of the other DT projects
and join us for this challenge!

You can purchase any of the CardzTV stamps HERE.

I am also going to enter this card into My Craft Spot's Congrats/Grads challenge.

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
