La-La Land Crafts - Embellish it


Good afternoon - I am shattered! I have had my first day at university in just over 6 years! I got the train this morning (very civilised compared to facing the M62) and I arrived fairly relaxed. Nice easy bit today - form filling and enrolling but my head is still banging - looking forward to getting stuck into my course. There is a lot of work involved because I am studying at Honours level, including lots if self directed study, so only time will tell what sort of impact it will have on my crafting time. What I am sure of though is that my studies will have to take priority over everything ... oooh I hope I manage to fit everything in!


So here is todays offering ...... my card for this weeks La La Land and the theme is ..... EMBELLISH IT!! This card nearly gave me a heart attack because I sentt it off to Irina and she mailed me back saying I had made a card for next weeks challenge instead of this one ....aarrgghhhh. Panic panic, lol ..... luckily managed to change a bit here and there and rescued it .... phew! I have followed the sketch on Sketch and Stash - my neglected stash are these beautiful papers, I stroke them far too much instead of using them, lol.
Right, I almost have another card finished so I may be back later today - have a good one!

Such a pretty card Marcea!

Congrats on going back to school. I finally accomplished my BA just a year ago, 31 years after graduating from high school. I never gave up, even when there were long periods of time I had to stop because of work and family. It was worth it. Good luck!
