Well Alan and I are a very proud mummy and daddy yesterday, as H was the flag bearer for his beaver's group at the Remembrance Service today and he did himself proud too, he also got a very good school report from his new teacher of 8 weeks - saying he has settled in very well and that he is up to Phase 6 in Phonics and his spellings, reading, maths and writing is above average too.
Today's card is a little different for me as it's more CAS, then i would normally do, but felt the stamp needed it (the code for this PB stamp is 1892M and was produced in 2000), firstly i stamped it in Versamark and embossed it with : Stamp Stuff - 'Crystal' embossing powder, i then distressed the sentiment with : Tim Holtz Distressed Inks - 'Bundled Sage & Salty Ocean', i used : Tim Holtz - 'Barn Door' Glitter Glue (for the holly berries), Stickles Glitter Glue - 'Star Dust' (for the stars) and 'Green' (for the holly leaves) and finished it off with Bazzill Bling and White Sheer Ribbon.
