I wanted to share with you a creation I made using Grad Bears. This collection comes with 10 pre-colored images it is a fun and colourful way to adorn your graduation cards, party invitations, stationery, scrapbooks, digitized embroidery or even wall decals. I have never used pre-colored images and find them awesome actually exspecially if you are doing a lot of the same cards. These would be great for making a party invites and wanted to use a cute image but you don't have the time to color 50 to 100 images...


My card today I am sharing I made for my neighbor's daughter who here in a week will be graduating High School. I used our school colors for my creation. Hope you enjoy!!!


Thanks everyone for stopping by today!!! I hope everyone enjoys their Wednesday!!! I would LOVE to spread the word about this company and their fun Blog...any help to spread the word from my great followers would be AWESOME!!!

Here's the Recipe

  • Image - BlackLeaf Studios Graphics - Grad Bears
