Mushy Raspberries

I'm headed for another long day on campus so I'm MAKING myself TAKE the time to create a card, photograph and crop it, upload it to the blog, type some yada yada yada (because THAT is the part my non-card-making-sisters like... go figure) and post it to the two challenge sites this morning. This is possible because I am a definite MORNING person.

Have I mentioned I'm NOT a night person? Why do I have all these LATE evening 'must attends' on campus - don't they notice my "Nancy has mentally left the campus look"? Two "must attends" this evening and one starts at 8:30 pm - I guess I should be grateful it doesn't start at 9:30 pm. Ahhhh....the life of a YOUNG college student .... a life that for MOST includes an afternoon nap! Luckily....I love my job, I love my job, I love my job...

Challenge (#53) at The Pink Elephant: Mushy Gushy Valentine Card and for this I used the Lord Have Mercy sketch (MTSC59).
