A Black Eye & Sunshine

Ah! I have been so jacked-up for the past week. I started my final summer semester of courses that will round out my pre-requisites for the nursing program that I was accepted into which starts in August. The classes I'm taking now are Developmental Psychology, Speech, & Microbiology with Lab.  Well, I must be allergic to something in the lab, because I ended up with a half-swollen face, a black eye, and four trips to doctors' offices. It's been a nightmare, and I really look like I walked right out of one. My face is scary, but at least I can see enough to get around now. I had to solicite car rides a few times. I'm just so ready to have my face and full eyesight back. I'm also behind now on some of my design team work. I was able to crank out this little ditty for Creative Charms though. Head on over there to check out the full card, & let me know what you think! :-)

Do you wear gloves? It could be the powder used to coat the inside- also the solvents they use to sterilize the labs are pretty awful- I hope you find the source so you can get through the class and onto your degree. The card is AMAZING! Love the stitching and glittery shimmer sun- great design.
