I remounted it on a8x8 card and added some pretty backing paper and lace My sister loved it so lets hope her daughter does too she is coming home for 5 weeks from Australia just after christmas.

I will wish all who pop by a Happy Christmas and all the best for 2012 especially in the health dept as know how important that is.........

Granddaughters Graduation card

Although our eldest granddaughter is lucky enough to be working for the past 2 months in the Intensive Care Unit at the childrens ward in the Freemans Hospital at Newcastle it is her graduation ceremony on Monday I am hoping to attend but it depends how I feel......
Ive never made a graduation card before so hope this is Ok. I used pearlised pale pink card embossed the top and bottom with a cuttlebug flower strip to which I added pearls in the centre. Then added a silhouette ( bet this isnt spelt right lol )of a graduation figure one of Crafty Nikkys sheets a couple of the lovely pearl pins which a crafting friend kindly sent me to try .

Hope she likes it and you think it is Ok for a Graduation card..

Well I didnt make the ceremony but my daughter and SIL said just as well as it was a long day and bitter cold..Here is some of the pics they took of one very happy clever granddaughter....One with her mum (my daughter) and one with her proud mum and dad.
