Making the Grade

Good Morning!
First I need to apologize for my first picture...not sure but I must have moved or something because the top of it is fuzzy and the bottom nice and clear. Normally I'd re-take a picture BUT as I type this the evening before, I'm about to watch the Oilers vs Flames hockey game.
The other day I was out and about and finally broke down and bought this CHF Kim Hughes set called Making The Grade. It was at a LSS for $31.99. ACK! BUT I've been eyeing it for MONTHS! Finally I decided that by the time I paid the crappy exchange rate, shipping and duty....the 31.99 wasn't such a bad deal!
I used it here for Taylor's TECC56.
Stamps: Making the Grade; Cardstock: Old Olive, Choc chip, Very Vanilla and October Afternoon DP; Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa; Accesssories: Copics, Choc Ribbon, Oval Nesties, Paper piercer, EK Success Wavy Border Punch, Dimensionals
Here is a card I made using Jen's SFYTT.
