Let's Hear it For Downed Servers

My busy time at work usually begins early Spring. Well for some reason the busy season has arrived early. My 12 hour days at work has officially started. Luckily tonight the server went down at work so with no way to access student files or emails I packed up and headed straight for home and my sweet and comforting card room! Who needs technology? All I needed was a little paper, cardstock, ribbon, and colors and my little world was humming along.

Layers popped up using foam dimensionals.

Close-Up of the sheen of Cryogen White the cardstock I am hooked on for coloring images and the 'glass' look of the bubble gum machine globe.
