FCCB #302-Graduation and Winner of #300-Mother's Day Blog Hop

First of all, crafty peeps, I would like to apologize for just now posting the winner of my blog candy for the Mother's Day Blog Hop.  I put all the names in a hat (literally, since I don't have the random thingie). 

My blog candy winner is Sunshine Honeybee.  Please contact me at sheharper@aol.com with your address so I can send your prize to you.  Also, since I am so late, if I don't hear from you in a couple of days, I will contact you on your blog.

Our challenge this time is to create a graduation project.  Our sponsor is

Dreaming Tree



The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

For this new challenge, I created a card for my neighbors' grandson, who is graduating from high school in Alabama.  I made a money holder since his gift was cash.  Here it is:


This is the inside:

Of course, I used his school colors, maroon and gold.  I decorated the inside with stamps and die cut stars. In the picture, it's hard to tell where the money is inserted, but it's above the maroon star on the right.  I should have put money in it when I took the picture. The graduate has received the card, and we were told he liked it. I've never made a money holder before, but I'm sure now that I will again. This was fun.

Be sure to enter our challenge.  Let us see what you made for graduation!
