I'm BACK!

I'm BACK....I've finally returned to the wonderful world of blogland...how I have missed stopping by and saying hi to everyone! I finished my last summer class today, and am VERY pleased to say that I am happy with my grades....it was a very stressful interim and never again will I take 3 accelerated classes at the same time! Whew...I can now breathe and get back to my craft corner....oh how I have missed it so much! I sure haven't stopped supply shopping while I was in school....so I have many new stamps waiting to get ink'd up and lots of new toys shouting they want to come out and play!

Even though school was stressful, and my art class turned out to be more stressful than fun, I did make some AMAZING friends over the past 6 weeks! They definitely made the class enjoyable through all stress! Today, I want to share a card that I made for my new friend, Sandy! She was a life saver, and my art mentor (she can paint like no one else...I swear she is going to be famous...and then I can say....yep that's my friend)! She helped me so much with projects, and her advice was so appreciated, as I am not a painter...I am a Copic Queen! lol!

Here's the front of the card. I used a Sarah Kay stamp and BG paper that I got from Embellish-Online.com. If you would like to shop you can click on the link in my sidebar which will take you to the store and you can get 20% OFF your total order by using the code GLITTER!
