Slow day in blog land!

Wow has it ever been slow in blog land! Hardly any of my blogging buddies posted today. When I checked google reader this morning there were only 3! I think that is a record...I see slowly but surely we are all crawling back on top of the rock and posting *lol*

I committed to a date night with my husband last night and promised him I wouldn't go near the computer *lol* That's what happens when you have an online teaching job too. I have been spending upwards of 10-12 hours online working on report cards (ugh!). Each report card takes an average of 5-6 hours. It gets better as the year goes on but the beginning of the year is the longest. I am actually supposed to be working on a report card right now but just wanted to say "Hello" and share a card I made early last month...a 5 minute card indeed.



recipe

paper: A*Muse card, whisper white (SU!)
ink: Brillance Black Graphite (Tsukineko)
stamp set(s): welcome little one (A*Muse), stick people (Wordsworth/Rubber Soul)
accessories: Scalloped rectangle punch (Marvy), Paper piercer, Rose Grosgrain Ribbon (SU!)


BTW (by the way), I have to laugh at my colouring. That was when I was still learning to use my Copics. Oh the things we learn as we practice. It's true what they say, practice makes perfect. I am a long way from perfect but I do get better as I practice.

I hope you have a great day. I am back to the grind...and lots more report cards for me!

Because I love to stamp and you do too!
