Whew, the return to work - all two days so far - is requiring some adjusting. My crafting time has been dramatically reduced, however, it's nice to be back with my colleagues and students. The close of semester 1 is nearing, along with final exams and the 'much anticipated' (not necessarily in a good way), provincial exams for Grade 12 students. How fortunate I was that those particular exams were in hiatus when I was in high school many, many years ago. They were revived about two years after I was done, so I missed the extra anxiety that comes with such high stakes testing. I just experienced my 'regular' anxiety, which pretty much tips the scale at high on any given day...
My husband is on his way to my parents' this evening, to attend another meeting addressing the indoor velodrome track being built in Edmonton. It's a there-and-back trip and as much as I would love to be his travel companion, the scheduling of his work and mine didn't mesh. That's okay...Uncle A can deliver Aunty C's cards to my little sweetheart niece and nephew, and I loaded up his luggage with extra helpings of hugs and smooches!
Okay, time to show you a card. Are you sitting down, because something 'most unusual' has occurred, as it sometimes does here at just me: c. My card
a) is quite cas,
b) is heading to a couple of colour challenges (shocking, that) and features four colours of ink (nope, no newcomers to the stash - yet. Rather, I cleaned up those my niece typically plays with and discovered that I quite like them! Looks like we're going to have to share for a while...),
c) uses new products from Clearly Besotted (oh yes, that love affair of CB is still going strong), and
d) has only ONE die cut, which is pretty minimal for me (although I did cut said die 6 times to create a chipboard effect.
My Butterfly Thank You is fluttering off to Less is More #153 (I don't qualify for this one very often, so yayyyy!!) Winter Blues
Aren't those butterflies sweet...and they come with dies, too! Swoon...
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
