I don’t usually share family things but Friday was a very special day for me, up early and off on the train with my husband and son in law to town to the oldest University in Australia, Sydney University

It is actually her special day. Amy graduated with a Doctor of Clinical Psychology, Masters of Science, and as I’m sure you realize by now, we are extremely proud of her. The Great Hall is a wonderful old sandstone building with beautiful stained glass windows, this was our venue for the morning, followed by champagne and nibbles in the Quad

I made Amy a card to celebrate the occasion using a sweet stamp by Elizabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy called Graduation Willow:

She is coloured with Copics and a little Kindy Glitz on the sash for some glimmer, I kept things simple to accentuate the image. I’m sure you will join me in congratulating Amy for her wonderful achievement
