Thank You, My Student

Hi again! 

It has been a busy, but productive day. This morning I did a little hopping (saw some cute banners for a pediatric unit), finished this card, and then went to the crafty stores to get a new i-rock since mine didn't work any more. The only reason I bought another one...I received some gems and stencils for Christmas that I wanted to use. If it breaks or burns out again, I don't think I will replace it.

 I made this card for a student who gave me a beautiful picture frame yesterday as a late Christmas present.
