Hi there! Remember me? Sorry I haven’t posted since last Thursday – I had/am having a BUSY week/end full of lots of studying and tasks for building the house (like meeting with our construction consultant last Thursday to picking out fixtures at a store 30 minutes away before they closed on Sat!) The ball is officially rolling on construction and it’s exciting but a little overwhelming at times; we have many times prayed for God’s direction, wisdom, grace and favor with building this house and that is not about to end!
Now on to my card! It is a fun one using Let’s Do Coffee from Taylored Expressions and the Early Bird card kit. I am in love with this stamp set and for this card I wanted to highlight some of the smaller images in it like the coffee cups and sentiment. Have you seen all the great cards made using this set? Here is a link to the design team’s samples for you to see!
A little personal news – I stayed late after my anatomy & physiology test on Monday night and was able to get my test results. I was so unsure what grade I would get but tested a theory that possibly I was overstudying so I held back just a little this time and ended up with an 83!! This was my highest grade yet in the class (one test I got a 79 on – ugh. So close. I almost got an 86 but I ended up changing 3 right answers to the wrong ones – talk about frustrating! I was so thrilled to get a B on this test and found out that I am getting a B in the class (for some reason I thought I was getting a C since that was about my average on my prior tests). Breathe, Donna, Breathe. Most of you may not realize how very difficult and exhausting these past few months have been working full-time and going to school 4 nights a week. I am happy to say I only have 2 more weeks to go! Yea!!
