Where has this year gone?  I can't believe we are now in August and it's SQA results day!  Today's the day Colin finds out how well he did in this years exams.  I know he tried his best, so that's all you can ask, so this card is for him, to say well done.  He's now heading in to his last year of school, then who knows what...time will tell.

This card is for the current challenge over at an Oldie But A Goodie, which begins today where the theme is

(Please also use an item older than 6 months on your card & tell us what it is)

And the sponsor this time is Robyn's Fetish who are offering our lucky winner 5 free digi images.

My card uses a lovely stamp by From The Heart, which is available here.

The ribbons are my oldie - bought in Germany last summer and the image is coloured by Promarker and set on kraft.  Papers by MME  - Everyday Flair.

What a fab idea for an exam congrats card - so cute too. Hope Colin is happy with his results - if he's done his best you can't ask for any more, there's such a lot of pressure with exams these days and I remember my kids all going out to school on results day full of hope and scared to death! - I expect he's celebrating by the time you read this!! hugs Judith xx
