All change

Today is one of those days I'll remember for many years as my little (6 foot tall) boy is starting at University. We seem to have been packing, buying and sorting for weeks and weeks. He tries very hard to be organised and I think we've covered everything. I made this card for him and will send it in the post next week. He loves to play his guitar when he has a little down time.

I made this card using stamps from the recently released Music Fanfare stamps from Chocolate Baroque. The card base was made from a template CB and I reversed the folds making the sides stand further forward. I heated Pearl UTEE
and poured it over the sheet music stamp. The flowers die is from Crealies and I glittered the edges of the petals.

I made this little elephant while we were away on hloiday and he now lives in Edinburgh with Jacks girlfriend. I didn't have enough grey wool so I knitted his body put pom poms on his feet to look a little like pj's.

Signing out to start a busy day.

Hi Debbie, your son will be happy with such a lovely card from his mum! It's beautiful.....and I can imagine that this is one of the moments of letting go a little bit..and that always gives a contradiction in feelings, isn't it?
