Hey everyone,
I hope you guys are enjoying your week. I've had a pretty hectic few days, therefore I haven't been around to stamping. These next three weeks are going to be very busy for me it's the last three weeks of the semester and then final's so I probably won't be around to much, but summer vacation will come and I hope to be around a whole lot more.

So earlier today I decided to do some stamping. I was inspired by Jen del Muro's TCPTUES card, it's just absolutely darling, so I figured I would try something along those lines using the TCPTUES55 sketch (scroll down for the details to the sketch challenge). But here is the story, I had class at 6 and I started stamping around 4:30. I'm stamping, I'm coloring, I'm gluing, I'm adding finishing touches an I look up and it was 5:47 yikes, I was going to miss my class. It was just perfect timing to grab my backpack and hit the road. So I got lost in card making world, who doesn't lol. I got to class a little after 6 but thank goodness the teacher was latter than I was, lucky me, right lol. So yea that is my story about this card. I hope you guys like, I thought it came out pretty cute.

Oh on another note, I ordered the new Because of You stamp set from Verve Stamps and I just got it in the mail today, I was so excited but when I got the mail I was on my way out of town for the weekend so that made me a little sad, but I hope soon to play with the new set and show you some cards. Stay tuned.

Enjoy and Thanks for stopping by.
