"Bella Armoire Stack" Graduation Card

 It's Friday!
Do you have any fun weekend plans? We have some plans with family which is always a treat. I love living so close to both my family and my in-laws. I consider myself very lucky!!

Wanted to hook you up with a "Friends & Family" Coupon for Michael's too...the sale is May 12-14 so print it out and stash it in your purse until the big sale!! The stack I am using in my project today is available at Michael's right now, would be nice to get an extra 20% off of it! :)



I wanted to share with you a very special card for me! It's been a LONG time coming :) I'll explain in a minute.....

I am using this amazing stack, "Bella Armoire Stack" which I adore. This stack is available at Michael's Stores right now. I love black and white prints and the ones in this stack are so timeless and classic!


I used this print..love the scaled down prints that are perfect for cards!! I cut this page in half and then scored my card on the print line. So my front is one print and the back is another print. 
Makes a perfect 6x6 card.


Love this little diploma! Rolled up some printer paper and tied it with some bakers twine. Simple, simple.



This card is for my amazing HUSBAND!! He graduates from college next Wednesday and this is HUGE for us :) I met my husband when he was just turning 21, and in his first semester of college. He was working full time for the bank (which he still works at) and was taking 2 night classes a semester. He has continued this for 8 years! He has worked so hard, always working full time during the day and taking a few night classes. It's been a lot of sacrifice for both of us....but it means so much to me that he finished what he started. And I know he will be blessed for it!! Sooo...Happy Graduation to my amazing, darling, gorgeous husband!!! I am {beyond proud} of you!!


Love my little boy's Easter ties in this picture from last weekend :)

Everyone have a great break from the week!! I'll be back here on Monday!!

  27. I noticed that when I print the coupon it's just the picture that prints so it doesn't show a coupon code. Am I printing it off wrong?
