Congratulations Cards

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
An Update, A Few Musings, And Some Cards

-oOo-

Well everybody – I’m still going on with my sortout of photos of the crafting I did during the last year or so.  This time I’m going to show you photos of a couple of congratulations cards I made to send to family friends who’d passed exams.

.

MUSINGS:

Simply – where have the years gone?!  It feels like only a year or two since I remember the two I made these cards for as babies, yet it must be far more years than that.  Time is a very odd thing – some things feel like it was only a short while ago that something from long ago happened, and other times it seems like happenings were a long time ago when they only happend a short while ago.

.

CARDS:

This first card was for a young man who’d passed some GCSE exams.  I was obviously going for a more masculine look.  Do you think I got the look right?

This 2nd card was for a young lady who’d passed her A levels and was off to uni.  I used a variety of Tattered Lace dies to make this.  The flowers were tri dies but I’m afraid I can’t remember which ones.  The card itself was a tattered lace book card set of dies, and I think the bookmarks I’d included were from the same set.  I also decorated a box to put this particular card in as it was too deep and big for an envelope.

In case it isn’t obvious – Llongyfarchiadau is Welsh for Congratulations.
