Grads, Dads & Lads Blog Hop



Hello friends! And welcome to the Paper Garden Projects Lads, Dads and Grads Garden Walk!! There have been some stunning cards and projects today!! (This is my second post today, you can scroll down for the Clear Dollar Stamps digital release!!)

My focus for todays Garden Walk is on the graduates in our lives. It seems that every year I need a quick graduation card for someone that I forgot was graduating. LOL! Does that ever happen to you? So I was thrilled to see this adorable Library Mouse by the Greeting Farm in the Paper Garden Projects store. Isn't he wonderful? And he makes the perfect quick card for any graduate from kindergarten to college - and for guys or gals!! For today's card, I colored my image with Copics and then paper pieced the mouse's vest with some Pink Paislee 365 dp. By using a clean and simple layout I made a mailable card in a matter of minutes, which comes in handy when you forget, doesn't it!! :-) Here's my simplified sketch. I'd love to see your cards if you happen to use it!

Remember to subscribe to each Gardener's blog as you walk through (oh, and be sure to check out my blog candy post while you're at it!!), and take note of each designer's name and their special garden walk word in their blog post. My word is "Grads"!!

Then, when you're finished, send an E-mail to custserv@papergardenprojects.com with the list of designers and their garden walk word to be entered in a random drawing to win a prize. You need to send an e-mail to the address above; please don't leave your list as a comment. You have until midnight (EST) on Tuesday, May18 to send your list.

And the prize? How about these cute little lads from Eat Cake Graphics!!

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you enjoy the tour (feel free to bring along a lad, Dad or Grad!). Here is the guide list in case you get lost... :-)


Blessings!
