Made It Myself Mondays

Welcome to Funky Cards and

Each Monday Alex, at You Had Me at Craft, will be having a "Linking Party." All you need to do is link something to her blog that you made yourself.

"Post ANYTHING CREATIVE that you made yourself.  Did you sew? garden? paint? create home decor? make jewelry, use vinyl? color? quilt? papercraft? knit? crochet? bake? cook? WHATEVER !"

This week I wanted to share with you the graduation announcements and thank you cards that I made for my brother Aaron for his upcoming high school graduation.  

I am really proud of Aaron:)
-He will graduate high school with a 4.3 GPA.   
-He got a perfect 800 on the math section of the SAT:)  
-He pitched for his high school team all four years of high school.

I wanted a simple thank you made from Aaron's school colors, orange and grey, that he could use for any graduation gifts he receives.  

Aaron plans to attend the University of California at San Diego and pursue a degree in Structural Engineering.  Wow, both of my brothers will be gone next year!  It will be really weird at home without them.

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. the graduation invitation is wonderful! Love how it has little details yet is not too busy! your brother is very lucky!


  2. You did a great job. Thanks for reminding me that I have to do the thank you cards. I did the graduation invitations for my kids. I have to do the thank you cards yet. Custom Crops has a Darice embossing folder that says thank you on it and I think it's what I'm going to buy to make a very simple card, since I have so many to make. I'm gonna emboss it on green paper with a yellow card base and then put white ribbon. Viola, a simple quick elegant thank you card. Thanks for always inspiring me Madison.

  3. That's awesome!
