Had yet another lovely crafting day today and managed to get 5 cards and upteen challenges completed!
This first one is for Mojo Monday #190 for the sketch, Papertake Weekly's Challenge to use punches or die cuts and for Farm Fresh Friday's Congratulations Challenge. I currently have a PGCE student (trainee teacher) with me at the moment and she will finish in 2 weeks time, so this card is for her for when she finally passes her course. I have made her loads of other bits and bobs which I'll post some other time when everything is finished.
