Had a difficult few days after the joys of my son’s wedding last weekend.  Mum and Dad left for New Zealand – again – and it seems harder to say goodbye every time we say it. 
Today is potentially the last day of my placement (unless we have to put on an extra class so that some absentees can finish their formal assignments) followed by a summative meeting, and I needed some quick Thank you cards, so I took refuge in a bit of stamping therapy.

Then I spent a little time playing around with some colour for a change, using a new stamp a really good friend surprised me with a couple of weeks ago, along with some fabby narrow double sided tape, the exact size I needed for my tags for the wedding place settings.
Here’s a place setting.

and here’s the card  finished last night.  I added colour with my Prisma pencils after stamping.

Can’t not post a photo of my son and new daughter-in-law – I’m still basking in that memory, despite the sadness of the last couple of days.
One assignment to go – once I’ve completed this file I’m working on – so I’m  hoping I’ll soon be able to stamp more often – yay!  Something to look forward to, although I’m thinking of spending some time with my brother, in York, followed by a trip to see my best ever friend in France.  We’ll see!


Not my usual thing, but surprisingly refreshing to make.  I’ve been busy this week with evening invitations, Orders of Service, Menus, etc for my son’s wedding.
