Yesterday was A levels. Emrys and Phil left the house by 6am to return to Palmers College in Grays, Essex because you either had to pick up the results in person or have them posted to you (!). They arrived in good time and Emrys achieved AAAB. Because two of his A levels were double IT which is mostly course work based, his lovely parents suggested that he carried on with both Phsyics and Maths to A2 standard, which he did. We are so proud of him! So he is now off to join Hywel in Middlesbrough next month. Although it is a LONG way from here, there is something special about them keeping a connection to the area in which they were born (and it is very cheap to live there!). We get to do it all over again for the GSCE's next week. Fun,fun, fun.
I was glad to have the Daring Cardmakers challenge this week to keep my thoughts occupied. Jo set the most wonderful Dare
I'd like you to use a line/quotation from the Big Screen as your inspiration and see where that leads your cardmaking.
I decided to do two as I might not be able to participate at all next week!
The card is a Craft Creations sqyare blank which I printed the greeting onto and then decided how I would fill the space. I wanted a cloud and a star so used a Nestablilities Label 6 die cut in half and a QK Primitive Star. All the papers are from a recent 6x6 Heidi Swapp pad. I also used a border punch, a Cuttlebug embossing folder, black sharpie pen and lots of stick on yellow gems. The star was covered in Rock Candy Distress Stickles as well.
It took longer to chose the quotes than to make the cards to be honest.
I've got my first Babbacombe baptism on Sunday and I am going off lectionary (the set Bible readings for every week) because I can't do the bread of life anymore. I love talking about Jesus as the Bread of Life. But not for 5 weeks in a row as the Lectionary suggests. So we'll be thinking about what baptism is - an outward sign of God's love for us, how we need to share that love with the baby being baptised and what the baby can teach us about God. Hope it all comes together and the baby doesn't cry! (you just never know....)
