It's that time again...

Hey there!  Don't fall over from shock but I am actually blogging!  Just got finished my first three week classroom intensive for my MSc (will have to do two more - they are once a year).  I made some new friends, did a lot of reading and writing, learned a lot and made more than one trip to the pub for food and beers.  :)  Now back to work... and more homework.  No rest for the wicked.... at least for the next two years.

So it's time for me to blog again because it time for another challenge at Seize the Birthday!  As always, it is 'anything goes'.  I needed a masculine birthday card for a friend's 40th birthday on the weekend.  Really like how this turned out!

All the details for playing along can be found on the Seize the Birthday blog.  Be sure to hop over there and see what the rest of the design team came up with!  Hope you can play along.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here are a couple of 'on campus' photos to share with you.  Could complain about the work load but not the views!  We've also had amazing weather here this fall and the colours are more striking than usual.  Love where I live.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a great weekend.
