Well it sure has been an interesting week for me. As some of you know I left my job after 31 years in June. I decided that I would take a little break and then look for another job. Well. a couple of weeks ago I saw a job advertised that sounded interesting. I applied not really thinking anything would come of it. I went for an interview last week which was very nerve wracking after 31 years of not having to do one. Anyway, I got offered the job today. Well, you could have knocked me down with a feather. The first job I applied for and I got it. I will be working as a customer service advisor for a local publishing company. Totally different to my last job but I am looking forward to the challenge. I start next week so going to enjoy my last few days as a lady of leisure lol.
Anyway, let's move onto crafty matters. Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges. Our theme for this week is:
Children and/or Christmas
We have three great sponsors for this challenge:
Sparkle and Sprinkle - a prize of 3 digi sets from SNS Exclusive Stamps
Crafty Sentiments - a prize of 3 digi images
Dis Digi Stamps - a prize of $12 gift certificate
Here is my inspiration project using a fun image and sentiment from Sparkle and Sprinkle.
I used the pre coloured version of the image but you do get the uncoloured version too. The sentiment also came as part of the set. I added some faux stitching to the image panel and matted onto silver mirror card. The papers were some freebies from a magazine together with the flower. I belived they may be Craftwork Cards but don't quote me on that. I added some card candi and gems to finish the card.
