My final post this year

This is one of the lastest photographs of my Grandson Finn. He is now 11 weeks old and giving us lovely big smiles. Isn't he just adorable.

As promised here is a photograph of my son and his fiancee at their graduation. Their robes were trimmed with a beautiful cerise colour. A lovely day and a very proud moment.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Last challenge this year

I think this will be my last challenge this year. I have a couple of busy days ahead like most folks with the final preparations for Christmas.
These little boxes will have some homemade sweets in them for gifts. They also fit the Allsorts challenge of 'anything but a card' and I used the 'Stamp with fun' sketch.
I used Craft Creations papers, a free stamp from Cardmaking and Papercraft mag, copics /promarkers, Nesties & Sizzlets heart.

Lucky me . I am the lucky winner of the Colour Create challenge no 32. It's a lovely feeling to win so unexpected.
Below are the cards I made for my son and his fiancee for their graduation. Their graduation gowns were trimmed with cerise so I made the cards to match.

I hope you all had a great weekend.

2 challenges

A quick post before I go for my dad's shopping. We have just returned from my sons graduation. He has just become a Doctor of Philosophy majoring in plasma physics, needless to say we are very proud of him. My daughter managed to come along too with our 8 week old grandson who did exceptionally well, both at the ceremony and the lunch afterwards. I will hopefully post pictures another time.
This card is for the Saturday Sketch and Stamp with Fun challenges. I loved this sketch which I turned on its side.
I used FF stamp colured with Copics/Promarkers, nesties, Craft Creation and PM papers, Woodware border punch, the baubles are covered in Diamond glaze and the stars have stickles on, the rest is from my stash.
