A quick update and some gorjuss girl stamps

I just wanted to update you all on my semester.  It was dicey for a minute or two, but in the end I did very well.  I am maintaining my 3.66 gpa. 
In the crafting world I treated myself to a couple new stamps because of a YouTube video I watched.  They are from a company called gorjuss girls.  I purchased foxy and the collector ( I can't imagine why lol).  They weren't too expensive and came packed well.  I love that the image is on the back side of the stamp so you can see it when using clear blocks.  
The collector
Today I spent most of my time coloring them in I like that you can color them however you like (so stamps don't allow for that but these girls can be given just about any color hair/skin tone etc and look lovely).  
After coloring for awhile I decided I want to get a BIG set of prismacolor colored pencils.  I currently have only about 20 colors and I find it too limiting.  I ran to Micheal's to see what they had and they want $230 for a set I found online for $95.  So I might do some shopping this weekend to see if my local artist supply stores, Joann's and hobby lobby have.  I have always wanted a nice set of colored pencils and never got them, so it's time. 
Here is the card I made with foxy and I used Close to my Heart's wild thing stamp set which was the stamp of the month in January or February I believe.  I think it came out cute.  Well I hope this post finds you well.  I promise more crafting will be coming.  Because I decided not to work rec this summer.  I'm sure I will take on many projects from now till the end of August. I looking forward to an awesome summer.
