It's been awhile...

Our family went up north for nearly a week and when we came home I had a hard time recuperating from the journey, so I haven't posted in awhile.  But I'm back now.  :)  Before I left, there was a Critique Clinic at and I had one of my cards critiqued.  Here is the updated card.  I want to thank each and every GCU artist who offered me their good advice, so I'm including a card from each at the very end of this post.

I also participated in the "Lightning Round: Kitties" just before I left, so I'll post those links now as well:
