Laura's sketch 15, and another totally unexpected thing...

Did you know we had an earthquake this morning? That is so totally unexpected, we don't get those here. Not in safe old quiet Scandinavia, we just don't! At least, that's what I thought until this morning, when the house started shaking, and the glasses in the cupboard started rattling, and the fan in the livingroom ceiling started rotating all by itself. Luckily, there was no damage here, and noone was hurt, so I see it as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Kind of exciting, actually. And so unexpected...

Last week I had to have a little break from my usual monday routine. There was no time for cardmaking, just work, work, work. It always gets a little crazy this time of year, when there aren't many days left of the term, but still papers to grade and students you have to chase to get assignments handed in. But we're all done with that now, and Friday is the last day of school before the Christmas holidays. I'm spending a great deal of this week crafting with a group of students, and they are so creative! At times like these, I really love my job. Well, I love my job all the time, just a little bit more this week.

So, I did make a card for Laura's sketch over at 2 sketches this week. I suddenly realized that I was in a hurry to get the remaining Christmas cards done, so I managed to make a whole bunch of them last night. The Nook December kit came in really handy.
I'll be back with more cards shortly...
