Such A Star

 
 
What else was I supposed to do to congratulate our son on his amazing GCSE results!  I was going to add "U R" or "What" but my husband said that nothing else was needed.
 

 
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CIP, Back to school,
MSCC92, School,
 
Before I go I need to share what a terrible mother I am. Before I made this card, our youngest daughter asked me if I was going to make a congratulations card, when I said I probably would she came out with, that's good, you forgot to make one for me when I passed my 11+ the other year! How terrible did I feel! I just can't believe that it slipped my mind.
Not wanting to to be accused of favouritism I got cracking and made this card using my Marij Rahder stamp paperpiecing the snail's shell.
 
 
 
 
It made my daughter giggle!

Such a sweet mum you are. Love both cards. They both have not-so-subtle non-verbal qualities. Terrific!! Both of them. Very cleaver - you with the snail!

That 'A' card is super good and the papers are perfect. Who knew the letter 'A' would make such a great card?
Now your daughter's card... I burst out laughing when I saw that image, it is such a hoot and I love it. That's just the funniest snail I've ever seen and it's a great card!
