Congratulations Amy! :-D

Today is the day that our lovely daughter graduates from university! WELL DONE AMY!! :-D
 I am such a proud Mum, I just wish that Sean was here to celebrate with us too. We will have a big family celebration over the Christmas holidays when we will all be together :-)

Amy is studying to be an Architect and has a year long internship for a company in Poland, which she is really enjoying, after which she will do a Masters Degree, just in case anyone is interested ;-)


I think the whole world is in love with these Bird Crazy Stamps by Tim Holtz and I know that Amy loves them too so I used the Crazy Owl for her special card. The fabulous and super talented Kristina Werner made an awesome Crazy Things Stamp Set to go with it! PERFECTION!! :-D 

I created the background by inking some Watercolor Paper with Stormy Sky and the lovely new color Cracked Pistachio, my new fave, and then used Blueprint Ink to stamp a Grid Pattern over it before embossing with White Paste through a Dot fade Stencil. In retrospect I wish I had just stencilled 2015 at the bottom, hey ho! ;-)


Thanks for looking! We are now at the ceremony and I will be back with photo's later ;-)

Challenges:
Craft Rocket   Add A Sentiment
Crafting With An Attitude   Anything Goes 
Mod Squad   Pattern Your Paper 
FanTastic Tuesday  A/G with a Twist: Add Some Purple 






Hope you all have a great weekend :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x
