Hi Folks, it's Friday again, and time for my Forgotten Friday post. Phew, this week has flown by! We have been up to Stoke on Trent for Megan's graduation ceremony, which took place on Tuesday. The weather was absolutely terrible on the day, it rained for the whole time. The grass was soggy, and it was such a shame, as the ceremony was held in Trentham Gardens, a really lovely setting. However, the students enjoyed their day, and the weather didn't dampen their spirits.
I hate having my photograph taken, but will suffer the anguish to have a picture with Megan. She looked lovely on the day, and we were very proud of her.
My Forgotten Friday project for this week was her graduation card. I knew exactly which stamps I wanted to use on her card, and they are stamps that I haven't used for five years, so I think that they qualify for this post very well! They are a set of Non Sequitur stamps 'House of Belonging', and are very apt for Megan particularly. She may not have realised in the rush of the day, but she reads my blog, and will understand from this post. Her dissertation in a nutshell, dealt with how women are regarded by society, by men, and by themselves. Whether the media, men, or even they, have allowed their image to become the way they are viewed currently. The background stamp reads "Be still woman, and know who you are" and the main image is of a young woman reading a book. I chose a very vintage feel to the card, while depicting a young woman of learning. I have also included a stamp from a Hot Picks Paper Artsy plate that has never been inked before.
Why don't you have a rummage and see what you have lying neglected in your craft supplies. If you make something, please leave a comment, and I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by, xx
