Very Proud Day

Good Morning Ladies, 

Well today's post is mostly a VERY proud Mumma gushing about how proud she is of her daughter!! 

Yesterday was just such an amazing day, not only seeing Sophie receive her Bachelor of Arts First Class with Honours Degree Certificate,  which has overfilled both mine and Paul's hearts with pride. That girl worked so damn hard and put EVERY ounce of her incredible skill into every piece of Coursework,  she has 100% inherited her Dad's trait of only perfection will do !!  Every bit of that effort the tears and exhaustion were so worth it, not only did she acheive her qualification, she absolutely smashed it.  You only have to look at her work to see how incredibly talented she is.  The other oart of the day that filled our hearts was watching Lucy constantly support and uplift Sophie, the bond those two share is just incredible, Lucy was by her side every possible second making sure her experience was the very best it could be.  We honestly couldn't be any prouder. 
My only wish was that Matt and Becca could have been there with us to celebrate Sophie's success and be included in the photos. 

To say we were hot was an understatement, but it was all worth it, we went and had some food afterwards which was around 4 30pm, we then got home and all of us went for a lie down!  What a day.

I have included a couple of cards to inspire you a little,  the first card uses Categories:

Diecutting/Tag/Heat Embossing 

The second card: 

Circles/Diecutting/Heat Embossing. 

I hope that you all manage to stay cool & Comfortable today, 

Love and hugs to all of you, 



  1. Morning Everyone
    Many many congratulations SOPHIE. Family history was made yesterday and a day which will stay with you all. Your photos are beautiful.

    It's already a roasting day and so another which will see me trying to find somewhere comfortable (not much chance). I have to chase my results of my scan which I had 27.06 as we cannot do anything about going to Marigny until I get them. We were hoping to go this coming week-end.

    HUGS are on their way to you all. Please drink plenty of water and try to keep cool. Take care and stay safe.xxxx

  2. Morning everyone

    Janet- hoping you can get hold of your scans so you soon see Marigny again but yes do take care today and that's to all of you my friends for it is another near +40 c today.
    I am not going to do much today at all. Had an awful night so feeling pretty shattered but hopefully by tomorrow it will be better.

    Sandra your photos are a lovely reminder of a very memorable day. Congratulations to Sophie, a day she will never forget. Your cards are lovely. Might have time tomorrow if it’s not too hot to have a go at a card

    Keep cool everyone, Lilian

Once again Congratulations to Sophie. Her special bond with Lucy is so strong isn’t it, lovely to see how much they support each other šŸ„° xx
