How my brain works

Oh hush, I heard the snickers and giggling. LOL But I have to admit, this is one of my better 4 a.m. ideas. So here's what happened... I woke up too early and started stalking my fellow bloggers. I was on Kayla's blog and she posted a project for the Creative Cuts and More design team that she's on. Well, THAT reminded me that I wanted to go get some of the apron diecuts from that site because I had a great idea to make something. Well, I got over there and found that each apron was .75, a little too rich for my idea which would require many. (Sorry CC&M!) THEN I thought, huh, I'll bet I can find a template online, so I did. THEN I changed up the template to incorporate my newest idea. Whew, I wear myself out, I tell ya! LOL

Anyhoo, here it is. A graduation card for the neighbor girl.

The outside:



The inside:



I'm pretty amused with it! I see so many applications for this... Summer party invites, any card that requires a gift card (or any card for that matter!) and my original idea, to use them to insert recipe cards into for my girls recipe albums.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week! :-)
