My Scrap Chick Merry & Berry Graduation Cards

Hello Friends! Yay a post!. . .and you thought I wasn't going to post anything today! Well, I was suppose to post this earlier in the day but my allergies struck and well. . .my life is dictated how bad my allergies are. I took a Claritin earlier today and for the first few hours, I felt a little weird then it wears off a little and life is all good.

I decided to work on a few graduation cards pronto before everyone graduates and I'll be too late to actually give them out. I decided to use Merry & Berry file because it has a graduation outfit which is perfect for graduation cards and scrapbook layouts. I created a scrapbook layout with this file sometime last week. . .this time around I decided to work on cards.

The bear is actually a non-gender bear. . .depending on how you decorate the rest of the card, it can work for both girls and boys. My designer paper has flowers so I guess the cards will be for girl graduates! LOL! I didn't think about it until after I created the card.

Look at the bear! Isn't he/she cute? I shaded the bear with pastels and drew in the freckles and mouth area of the bear. It's a fun shape for all your graduation cards and projects.

Do you see the round decorative border with the ribbon? I used the "$1 Border Strips" file. . .there are 6 different borders all for a dollar! How cool is that? What I did was resize the file to 1.35 x 5" and inserted ribbons through the holes. I love how it turned out! You can do that too. . .there's actually different possibilities with the different border strips. I'll share another one some time this week.

Anyway. .. I'm a bit behind on my crafting this week because of my darn allergies. I really am a bit disappointed that my allergies returned. I didn't have too many attacks the past few weeks but the past few days, it returned and at this point, I really don't know what triggered them. I'm beginning to think I'm allergic to everything. Sorry. . .I'll stop whining now. Tomorrow will be a better day!

I hope you all are having a wonderful and blessed Wednesday!!
