The results are in....


Phew what a day! I'm getting drenched here in the not-so-sunny Sheffield today, seems whenever I'm out and about running an errand the heavens burst and now I'm sat at the PC it's bloomin' sunny outside - typcial eh?!

Anyways enough whinging, let's get on to a card shall we?

So if you've been watching the news you'll know that it's been results time for GCSEs and A-Levels. Chris' brother, Matt was one of those nervous students wondering if he'd got the grades he needed to go to Uni - oh I remember that anxiety/excitement like it was yesterday!

Anyways Matt did really well and we're really happy that he's got into his first choice of Uni so it's just a matter of packing up and going! I wouldn't be babbling about this if it didn't require a card right? So in order to celebrate Matt's achievement I made yet another masculine card (though I wanted to have some fun with bold colours to celebrate!)It's actually based on a Mojo Monday sketch that was designed to celebrate 100 sketches:
I don't think it's too bad for a teenager - I couldn't resist adding those flourishes along with a spot of paper piercing though I really need that cool ruler tool with holes in for accurate piercing; piercing here took way too long for my liking!

Matt liked his card anyways and I hope you like it too! I'm posing this on the PTI Blog (well it'd be rude not to when it's adorned with PTI stash!;D) along with much less babble so if you want the deets you can check it out there!

Right then, I'm off to the cinema tonight with Chris - I've no idea what we're gonna see (it's his choice!) but I've just had my hair cut and finished so I'm feeling fab and ready for a nice night out! I hope y'all have a FABULOUS bank holiday weekend! It's gonna be a birthday, a soggy BBQ, a lucky flutter on the Dogs and maybe the Casino for me - I'll explain later....!

Catch ya later!

Lovely card!!! Your weather seems interesting. It'll take us some time to get use to it when we move there next year. We're excited though for the opportunity to live overseas and traveling Europe some :)
