Today's the day!!!!

JOFY Style card 
mornin mornin mornin, brr its gone right chilly here all of a sudden, almost autumnal.  No more nipping out at the unearthly hour of 5.30am without a cardie.  The darker mornings are starting to creep upon us too but on a positive note I do get to see the sunrise on my early morning round trip.  This mornings' was just beautiful.
It's GCSE results day today for Harry bean and all students across England and Wales.  We've all got our fingers crossed he's done well to head off to college next month to start his 3D design course.  I'll keep you posted :-) I'm a bit nervous but H is as calm as a cucumber!!! as usual and still fast asleep. 

Anyway, on to a bit of crafting, my card today is a cutie little 5 1/2" square tent card, bought in a pack of 10 from Whichcraft UK, and altered using stamps by JOFY, Distress Inks and watercolour pencils. I love the tall flower spikes in this stamp set and the sketchy look you get from using the pencils.  Here's a few more pics:
