Dribs of Chips

Grueling weekend....another Freshman Orientation. Love to meet the new families and students - but man I really need a day to catch up and more time in The Bubble making cards (not to mention laundry). I got a Stampin' Up catalog in the mail and haven't had a chance to crack it open. I think tonight is the night for that lovely task!

I managed to put the finishing touches on this one - I've been working on it in dribs and drabs when I could sneak a few moments in The Bubble. Used more of the paint chips I 'acquired' at Lowes. Paint chips these days are HUGE compared to the wee swatches of yesteryear....
