Exciting time!

Hi there. Firstly a big welcome to my new followers Heidi and Annie. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy yours.

 Sorry I've been missing for a while but lovely things have been happening for me and hubby. My sons have both passed their exams and just graduated from University. Chris, my eldest is now a Doctor with a medical degree and a 'first' in a medical science degree as well. Kieran also got a 'first' in History and a fabulous mark for his dissertation. They graduated within 6 days of one another so I had cards to make not just for them but also for their girlfriends who graduated at the same time as them. I made box cards for the first time which took me ages to make, I'll show you those on another post as I got the design on Pinterest and want to ask permission from the original maker first.

Anyway here's a card I made for a commission. I hope you like it.

It's a LOTV image from one of their art pads.
Here's a close up shot.

We're so proud and happy for our sons but I'm a little bit sad as they have now moved or about to move into new homes with their girlfriends so have officially left home, sob, sob. Ah well, I'll just have to make do with my hubby and three cats!
Hope you're all having a great weekend and enjoying today's sunshine. I've actually got some more cards made to show you.... yes I know it's a bit of a miracle..... so I hope to be back soon.
