I have made a ton of these graduation cards over the last several years using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and Sizzix dress up dies. I love personalizing them for male/female using different hair styles and colors as well as different background or gown colors depending on the school colors.

The orange background for this card was embossed with a Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder. The balloon was punched out with a Sizzix die, and stamped with the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. The clown is from one of the first Stampin' Up! sets I purchased back in the 1990s, and I'm not even sure what the name of the set is any more. It's one of those oldies but goodies that I really like and still use when I'm making birthday cards for children. I make the birthday cards for the children in our Jr. Church Program, and this happens to be one of the cards that I sent to one of those children.

In addition to the best rubber stamps around, Stampin' Up! now offers some of the prettiest fabric that coordinates with our papers and rubbers stamps. This little guy, Calvin, was made with Comfort Cafe Stampin' Up! fabric. Calvin was made by Shirley over at www.lookatmycutestuff.blogspot.com. I ordered Calvin as a surprise for my good friend and coworker Adele (who collects owls) on Tuesday, and had him by Thursday. He is absolutely adorable and very well made. Thank you, Shirley, for the great service!!

Four people submitted entries in the Late Night Stampers Treasure Hunt, and I am pleased to announce that the winner is Patrice Haskell from Belmont, New York. I am packing to leave for a conference early in the morning, but I will plan to post pictures of the winnings over the weekend. Congratulations Patrice!!

A few other demonstrators listed the participants in the Late Night Stampers Treasure Hunt so I thought I would to. It definitely makes it a little easier to participate. I have had two people already submit lists, and they will be entered in a drawing to win a prize from me on May 15. If you become a follower on my blog in addition to submitting a list, I will enter your name in the drawing twice.
