Two Grads in the Family

Both of my beautiful nieces graduated this year and so I have been busy making cards and announcements. The first card I made for my sweet niece, Brianna, who stepped in to help me out last year with my stepson, Donnie, while my husband was in the hospital and out of work on disability for 7 weeks.  Brianna was home-schooled and will be going on to Harford Community College in the Fall.

The next photos are of the announcement I made for my wonderful niece, Heather, who graduated from South River High School.  She is a very hard worker and has  been working at the Hair Cuttery for two years now and will be taking her final test soon to get her cosmetology license.  She will be attending Anne Arundel Community College in the Fall.

Heather did not want the traditional announcements that you can purchase from school so I created a sample and then got together with Heather and her mom on a Sunday afternoon.  We got our production line going with the two of them doing all the sponging of ink, itty bitty dotting, and glueing and I did the stamping, layering and construction of the announcements. We made 35 of them to give to her closest friends and family.  It’s a cute little three way card that can be kept open and on display for all to see.

Congrats to both Brianna and Heather! I am so proud of you!
