A night of tears and a day of smiles ...and now some fabulous news too!

Before I share my card with you I have another tale to tell you. As many of you know I am back at university and had my first essay to do in December. Well, the results were due out yesterday and were available on the University website from midnight. So of course I had to stay up and get them didn't I!! I had worked really hard at my essay but did not feel confident at all about if I would pass or not. Trying to find the score was a nightmare ..... I found a '70' on my paper but thought that's not right because it is marked at honours level and I just wasn't at all confident. I then opened another box and saw a very sad 27. OMG not only had I failed but had done it big style. I burst into tears, emailed my tutor and went to bed, crying most of the night. Imagine my surprise when I got a confused email back from my tutor telling me I had got an 'A'!!!!!! OMG I am so happy, looks like I did get 70% after all, I am so happy!!!!! Phew ..... that was an awful night, I felt sick in my stomach!

Now I have got all that off my chest let me share my card with you! I have dug out another old but beautiful stamp. Do you know I have never used my Copics on her before, only pencils, so it was lovely to have a play.

Beautiful card Marcea, so pretty.
Huge congrats on getting your A hun you must be thrilled after the tears, bless you.
That reminds me of when I went back to college a few years ago and got a D for an assignment, I was so not happy and hunted the tutor down to ask why, then found out after my rant about all the work I'd put into it etc, that a D stood for distinction the highest grade and not the D as in school grades lol
