The Secret....

"The secret to having it all,
is believing that you already do"

Believe it or not, I'm all moved in! My dad and I managed to unload and unpack two carloads full of clothes, books and other college necessities. Coming back to school is always bittersweet. On one hand I get more independence, have the chance to take wonderful classes and of course have lots of gator football fun. But on the other hand I miss my family, my room and the other comforts of my childhood home. I'm ready and excited for my last semester at college and for the new adventures to come!!

On a totally different note, I've noticed that its been about 2 months since my last video tutorial. I'm working on creating and editing one which I hope to have up on Tuesday!

This particular card was created with a magenta cat stamp. I actually have an older video tutorial, which depicts my shading process for this image(it uses different colors) I have embedded it below, if you're interested. I used a So Saffron card base on top of which I stamped an old SU Background (I think it's Aida Cloth) in So Saffron. I stamped my sentiment and its matching flowers from Friendship Flowers (SU) in Tempting Turquoise and Versafine Onyx Black on matching cardstock.

Happy Stamping!!!
