Hooray we have internet back at last! and my OSAAT DT card.

I cannot believe it has taken almost a week for our internet connection to be repaired, and a 1000 appologies to my 3 the design teams and to all the challenge entries I have been unable to visit and comment on who enetred OSAAT, Creative craft challenges and Penny.
My internet link dropped last tueday morning at 8:24  the exact time I was told by Plusnet not that I knew I would have said around 25 past. I did all the usual things to no avail and then contacted plusnet. What a performance and they lack certain qualities especially in communication and customer care, I only seemed to find out what was going on if I rang them despite being told they would ring me and keep me up to date but eventually and miraculously when I rang yesturday late afternoon they were just doing a final check and I was back on line, then came the fight for the computer and as I had dinner to prepare I lost out, but now I'm back.

Now appologies made for this being so late but at leastI had my card all set to go for sunday so better late than never, OSAAT has a theme of graduation/schools out. Now I know here in the UK we have a way to go before this happens and I guess by the time our schools are out for summer and graduations start the US kids will be on there way back to school, wonder which kids get the best summer? I suppose the schools downunder  will be thinking more about summer break when we are thinking Christmas too.Anyway another fab prize too 5 Promarkers are on offer from

and don't forget to check out the Papercraft essentials mag on sale June 9th for Stitchy's fab add too.

We have some stunning inspiration for you all over on the challenge blog here so please do go check it out and play along and don't forget to put a #3 after your name if you use a stitchy image as you will be eligible for the top 3.

Right onto my card I got to play with Floppy Latte's fab grad cap and diploma which you can find here. Have to say I wasn't sure what colours to use, I know different degrees have different coloured gowns but as I don't know what they are I decided to use my sons schools colours, not that our schools have a graduation but hey ho.

I printed the image so it was full card width and made a DL size card,and for added interest I cut around the mitre, really easy and I hope you agree effective too.

Thanks for popping by and again apologies but there wasn't much I could do despite my son thinking otherwise.
