After several weeks...if not months of card block, I have eventually managed to start colouring and make cards using stamps not kits!  Not sure if this was simply due to necessity or if I'm actually getting back into my card making...we can but hope!

Today's card is for our son Alan, who heard last week that he will be graduating in Masters Chemical Engineering with First Class Honours!!! Can't get better than that so I thought I'd best make him a card to celebrate!  His graduation is on Thurs so I dare say you'll see a photo or two!

My card uses a sweet Penny Black stamp and a selection of old papers - I am trying to use what I have...for now!

Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes with spots & stripes
PBSC - Masculine
Cheerful Sketches - Use Sketch Jx
