A Very Pinterest Break

Hello Friends and Stampers,

Well here I am in my 8th class. So just four more to go before I can have my life back. Looks like mid Aprilish of next year. The thing about a year and a half of studying, is that it makes you appreciate the free time you do have.

Thank you my friends who check on me and inquire if I am okay. That means so much to me to know I have been missed.

So on my last break, I was challenged to make as many cards as I could in a week and a half! Wow. I was thinking I might break out ten if I was lucky, but I made 34 cards!!! Some were clean and simple and some more involved. None were my original idea, they were all seen on Pinterest or Facebook. lol.

So here is what I made mostly doubles and some triples of:

I made all of these from the MFT Zipper die. I loved the beachy striped one I saw and wanted to make something similar to it. 

I saw this SU set: Giggle Greetings used on Cre8tive Play and it inspired me to break mine out as well and play. 

I know I got at least one of these from CARDiology 's blog. I actually made that wood background from another S.U. wood background stamp. These were so fun to make. 

These are make it crafty digital images that I have had in my computer for a very long time. I saw Craftybit's remake of these images and had to print mine out and make some too.  The first one is very similar to her original because I love the hair she colored and the paper was perfect for her. 

Of course I had to break out some Lawn Fawn get well stamps, again, straight from Pinterest

These are some memory box dies I bought a little while back, I wanted to try out the fantasy film I purchased about two years ago and never used. Okay, in real life this stuff is amazing. I just cut loosely, crinkled it up and then glued it on and cut around the edges just a little bit. Oh I love the shimmer and shine this created. 

So that is what I did on my break and I had the best time making these. I also have a few Lawn Fawn color my world cards sitting on my desk, but I will share that on the next break. 

School is getting more difficult just to be able to concentrate on, but I am acing those classes, so I must keep up the intensity. They are five week, "all in" classes. With five chapters to read, more electronic reading, a paper to write, two small papers to write, and six comments.....per week. I am not a fast reader and I am a very thoughtful writer, so this is taking every bit of my time. By I wanted to climb on the blog and let you all know what I've been up to. 

I hope you are all doing well.
