A quick update. I started new classes last week. I was scared to death because I wasn't sure if the crushing load from last semester was going to continue now that I am into the senior level classes, or if those classes were just flukes. Happy news...based on the first few weeks, these classes seem much more comparable to others that I have taken, which means that I can dust off my crafting corner!!! But not quite yet...I did two weeks of classes in the last eight days because I am running away tomorrow for a quick girlfriend get-a-way!! (I guess I can't whine anymore about being busy, can I?) I'm heading out to Chicago for a couple of days of sightseeing, dining and a lot of chatter. When I get back...I'll be crafting, I'll be reading blogs, I'll be commenting and catching up on your lives. It will be fantastic!!
Before I run away, I am playing along with a couple of challenges.
Catered Crop is Spring Fever. Linda starts describing the challenge with this quote...
"It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!" ~Mark Twain
I most definitely have spring fever!! (Although that doesn't quite explain why I would go to cold, windy and rainy Chicago instead of staying in Colorado where the forecast is mid-60s and sunshine all week!?)
Spring cards could be St. Patrick's Day, Mother's Day, Easter, butterflies, flowers, rain, bunnies...anything springy! I had an uninked stamp set in my stash that is most definitely spring and also works perfectly with the current sketch at Viva la Verve.
Here's the sketch I used...
And now I am off for a little last-minute shopping and then packing!! I have a couple of posts scheduled for this week - so you'll never know that I am gone.
Thanks again to all of you!!
