We have been having beautiful weather in my neck of the woods which makes for lots of cheerful people even though we are coming to the end of summer. My husband is away for for 5 days so I have been taking a holiday from cooking and just eating what I like, when I like, which is bliss. I am continuing with my whole house declutter, and I think my car could make its own way to the refuse tip by now. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now. It might only be a pinprick but it is there!!
All these things have been keeping me out of my craft room, but I had to come back to make a congratulations card for a lovely young woman who has had remarkable exam results after having a lot of ill health this year. In spite of having lots of time off school, she was determined not to fall behind and worked extra hard when it would have been easy to let her health problems win. Her determination really paid off and she can now start her A Level Courses with her head held high.
I decided to mix up a lot of sentiments from My Favorite Things, Paper Smooches and PTI to create a focal panel and came up with this:-
Darnell is celebrating her 600th follower by having a challenge to use Never Before Used Stuff and I as I inked up my PTI Wet Pant sorry Paint stamps for the first time for this card, I'm off to play along. Congratulations on yet another milestone my friend!
I'd also like to enter this into the current Path of Positivity Challenge which is 'Determination'
and the Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge which is to mix things up for the Stamptember blog hop.
I have been so busy that I haven't had chance to visit for a while, and I'm starting to get withdrawal symptoms, but I'm hoping to get round to see what you've been up to tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by.
