A get well card and some news........

I wanted to make a card for a very special blogging buddy who is really not very well. Isn't it strange how when you sit to make a really special card all your ideas go-luckily I got my mojo back through Day 50 on 365 cards where they challenge you to use:-
1) An item that is more than a year old

2) Something that you were given that you have never used - this could be from a swap or a gift, but it has to have come from someone else.

3) Something you forgot you had.
so I used some Mary Engelbreit paper I forgot I had and rickrack ribbon. Something I was given was a free digi image from Sassy Cheryl's which I've coloured with promarkers. An item more than a year old is the gold mirri board under the stamped image.

I'm also entering it into the following challenges:-
Stamp something - layering
Paper Cutz challenge - anything you like

My news is that I have my first GDT position at Nutcrafters, see how easily I have filled that studying time LOL!

sorry to hear about your friend but that card will really cheer her up.

Good news about the GDT spot. Thats fab... what studying??? I used to continue with research afterwards - I found it hard to come back down - I didn't have crafting back then though - wouldn't have a problem now... well done and happy crafting
