I'm so happy! I've had major computer problems these past few days, huge red internet warning messages and no access to my blog from the PC.  Colin however has just fixed it - a little battery problem which feeds the clock.  Something I never even knew existed.  Anyway, battery changed, clock working and internet back! Yip-ee!

Now onto today's card wich actually is for a Colin, who passed all his SQA exams yesterday and has now secured a place at Robert Gordon's University. We are all so happy for him, well done Colin, all that hard work paid off.

Now, as some of you may know, Colin's summer job is at Mackie's Ice-Cream and so, when I saw this image, I knew it would be perfect for him.

So his CAS card uses a House Mouse image, kraft and Promarkers for colour.  The personalised sentiment was computer generated, love the cone-gratulations! (That was Craig's idea!)

House Mouse - relax and enjoy life - hopefully he will now he has his results, and enough ice-cream to feed a small nation!
