Exams are over so I'm into guilt free crafting time


Well this morning's exam went a little better than Tuesday's. I (think I've) answered 2 questions well, 1 question OK and 2 questions not very well but hopefully that will be enough to get me a pass and after Tuesday's fiasco I'd be happy with that.

Thanks for all your kind comments. They really cheered me up when I was at a low ebb.

Anyway what this all means for me now is that I can put the study books away until January (when I have to start on the next couple of subjects) and enjoy weeks of guilt free crafting (forgetting all the housework of course, lol). I placed another SU order for myself at the weekend so that it would be delivered today. Unfortunately it was delivered whilst I was at the exam, a kind neighbour has taken it for me and is now out herself. So now I'm itching to get at my new goodies and having to content myself with what I've already got (I'm so hard done to you know, lol).


Recipe:
Stamp sets: Tree Trimmings. Autumn Days, Occasional Greetings
Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White
DSP: I Wish Simply Scrappin' Kit (retired)
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, SU Markers
Punches: Corner Rounder, Eyelet Border
Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon: Real Red

I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sprigs of fir tree in the top corners, the baubles below them and the sentiment. The middle bauble is raised on dimensionals.

Now I'm going to have a play at a new technique (if it works then I'll show you the results tomorrow) and then it's off to the vets for Bess's stitches taken out.

Thanks for stopping by.
