Now that basketball season is over, I'm wandering back to my life like a disoriented soldier from the front.
Okay, okay, that's probably a little bit of an exaggeration, but I do feel a bit battle-weary, nevertheless! (I'll tell you how tired I am - I totally forgot to do a blog post on my first ever... more on that later.)
Here's the card I made Linda for the February CCC. My embossing leaves a little bit to be desired, but the stamp is very detailed (so I'll know better next time to be a lot more careful with the inking step).
