A long overdue artwork post

Sunday, April 19, 2009

Can you believe how long it's been since I last posted some art? I've got a pretty good reason. My exam is in 2 days and I've really put studying on the front burner this past week, which means that my true love of paper crafting has had to play last place fiddle. Yesterday morning, however, I was about to crack. I desperately needed to get down and make a card. I was having serious withdrawels. My card is for Amy's weekly sketch and Sparkle's weekly Christmas card challenge.

Supplies used include a RAK bella paired with BG's wassail paper. I'm having so much fun using that paper on my Christmas cards as of late. The sentiment is from CTMH. If you look real hard, you can see the liquid applique that I used on Bella's boots and hat.

I probably won't be back until after Tuesday. If you care to send some good vibes and thougths my way that I'll pass this exam on Tuesday, I'd sure love them. I'm retaking the exam part that I missed passing by 1 point a couple of months ago.

As always, thanks for stopping by and visiting my little spot in the world. Have a terrific Sunday and I'll see you later in the week, hopefully half way there to becoming a CPA.
