Hope all is well with you and yours - hugs winging their way around for those who are in need!
Like thousands of other parents up and down the country, I was a bag of nerves yesterday morning whilst I was waiting for eldest Bambino to collect her GCSE Exam Results from school. So to save my nails (and sanity!) I did what every good crafter does and made her a card, keeping my fingers crossed all the time that we would be celebrating in some form.
I used the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches as my layout inspiration for this project:
My card recipe is as follows:
- Card Base - is black card which I have cut, scored and folded to make a 15 x 10.5cm card. I have also used the same black card to make the top panel, which I matted onto white card before mounting it onto the base.
- Sentiment - is a free digi that I found in the More Word Art section at Free Digital Scrapbooking having spent several hours trawling through my digital stash and usual digital haunts to try and find what I was looking for! I printed this onto white card and cut a rectangle around the sentiment, fussy cutting round 3 of the star points to leave them outside the rectangle.
- Stars - are die cut from Gold Glitter Card from my stash using Die'sire Essentials Stars dies in varying sizes which I've stuck onto the card front in a random pattern.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
And just in case you were wondering, Bambino achieved 4 subjects at Grade C (including one she took a year early last summer) and 5 subjects at Grade B, which should be enough for her to enrol on the A level courses she was hoping for at college - we'll know that next week! If you are another "Exam Result Parent", I hope your offspring achieved what they were hoping for.
Hope you have a great weekend!
Hugs, Helen x
