Hey yall! Sorry I've been so quiet. Like most of you, this time of year is busy for me, and it's only going to get busier! I will try to post as much as I can, k?
I mentioned some changes going on, and now I'm able to share details. After the end of December, I will be leaving my full-time job as an outside sales rep (I sell poster making machines, ID badge machines, and laminators to schools). I've been with the company for almost ten years, and I am off to chase a dream! Other than playing more with my kiddos, I will be taking on some new adventures in the paper craft industry, as well as continuing my design work and filling custom orders. Fun stuff!! See...I told you it was nothing bad. *wink* Plus, now I get to go to CHA for work! How great is that?!
So anywho, I hope you can hear my excitement. I have a lot of people who believe in me and encourage me (including yall!), and I wouldn't have been able to go forward without all of you. So this card is for you guys! (oh, and the SCS color challenge for this week...*grin*)
Yes, I finally broke down and ordered Absolutely Fabulous from Stampin' Up! Mostly thanks to Kristina and Dawn. I love this set! I cut out the layers with different sizes of my Labels One Nestabilities dies and inked up the edges. The red layer is embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder as well. Then I stamped the image from Verve's Serenity set in Baja Breeze to set off the sentiment. The final bit was the ribbon...which I may remove...not sure yet. But either way I like how it turned out...nice and simple!
Ok, so to celebrate my newfound freedom from "the man," I'd love to give away some stamps! I found myself with two sets of Sheep Celebrations 2 clear stamp set from Elzybells Art Stamps. Isn't it too cute?
I'll leave this until my Sketch for You to Try post on Saturday, when I'll post the winner. All you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me what your dream job is. Easy! I can't wait to hear what you have to say!
Oh, and a PSA:
Two of my favorite people are giving away blog candy as well! Check out the links below:
Susan Liles aka Susiestampalot
Julee Tilman from Poetic Artistry
Have fun and good luck!
