Happy Memorial Day, my USA blog readers! I hope you enjoy the holiday.  I'm working today, but it will still be a special day.  I'm hoping to take residents to the Memorial Day parade this morning (weather permitting) and the VFWA is coming in for a Memorial Day program this afternoon.  
I'm posting today on the Timeless Twine blog, and since I've needed a BUNCH of Graduation cards lately, I fired up my Silhouette, got out my favorite twine, and got busy!

This graduation hat shaped card is a cutting file from SVG Attic, called Up for Grads.  I used the school colors of the Graduate, and it just so happened that they were Patriotic for Memorial Day.  I love such a nice coincidence!  The tassel, is of course, Timeless Twine

 I used Aqua Blue and Red baker's twine.  It's one of my favorites, and just perfect for the upcoming celebrations!
This card was for one of my staff.  She's worked for me for 8 years.  Five years ago, she went back to college to get her degree in early childhood education.  She was able to keep working for me on the weekends and some evenings.  I am SO proud of her that she obtained her goal and graduated.  She deserves the biggest tassel I can fit on that cap!
Don't forget about the Photo Fun Challenge going on at the Timeless Twine blog.  Link up for your chance to win twine and a reaaaallly cool stamp set!
