An important week........

As its my Middle sons graduation on Thursday so we are travelling down to London to share his special day with him.

 I struggled to come up with a manly graduation card so have gone for more of a skys the limit sort of card.  Stamps by woodware and perfect for a spot of paper piecing!
This one is for Christina - his Girlfriend who also graduates the same day - I have gone for her favourite wine colour as the main theme with just a simple card using the catgrad stamp by Mo Manning.
Looking forward to seeing their new home as well as taking all the stuff we have packed up here for him to make a little room here.
Its strange that the boys are no longer based here - off out there making their own homes and filling their lives with new dreams and experiences.  I am so proud of them, their achievements, the men they have become but a little part of me still yearns for the time with the little boys they once were.  I expect that will always be the case.  
Right enough feeling nostalgic off to make arty backgrounds with Megs as she practises art journalling for some A level art homework over the summer.
Happy Monday folks!
