Congratulations!

I spent the early part of last Thursday morning willing the phone to ring, or a text message to pop up!  It was A level results day and I was waiting to hear how my nephew Charlie had got on.  Well, he did brilliantly and to say I'm proud of him is an understatement - he'll be heading off to Sheffield Uni next month to study Accountancy and Finance - now that sounds like my worst nightmare hehe, but his choice doesn't surprise me - at 2 he already knew the number of the checkout we'd paid for our shopping at, and which junctions of the motorway went where, and his first pet hamster was called "Hundred Million" hehehe
Obviously, the rest of Thursday was spent making a card for him:
I used:
Black and White striped paper: Funky Hand "Stripey Stripes" download
Kraft card blank
Bazzill card: yellow, orang, white, red
Blue Pearlised mirror card for backing the stars and for the lettering,
Black and White Bakers Twine

My Craft Robo had a really good work out for this card:
The Stars, Smiley Icon, hands, boots, Banner and Lettering is all cut on the Craft Robo

Thanks for visiting today
