Life Can Go On Now....

What possibly could I be talking about here?! Well, long story here but I got in touch with a company who asked for my resume! Yeah, truth be told, unless we want to live in just that hole they started digging today I better get a j-o-b! I was SO excited, when they asked, at the prospect of new employment! If you know me you know I can't just sit around! I have to be productive and at work it's worse! I am a driven woman in the work force! LOL! So, life can get back to normal for a bit as I am done re-writing my resume! Try condensing work experience over 23 years into a 2 page document and that's not including the space for your contact information, objectives, education etc....! Woosh! Not easy but will be so worth it!

Anywhooo, on to more fun stuff! I had made quite a few really cute cards that I'd like to share! I just love how these turn out! A couple I made as entries to a DT(Design Team), won't say which one as I really want to try again! I am going to share them with you all now since I didn't make it =o(! I hope you like them, let me know if you do okay?! I'd love some feedback since I would like to try for a DT again!

So we all have a favorite stamp or two or three or, well you get the picture! This is one of my hundred favorites! I got it because it's what my brother says ALL THE TIME and I had to make him a card with it! He's still in Iraq, for those that are curious he'll be home in just a couple of weeks! YEAH!! So, the words are supposed to be this "What's up?"...."chicken butt"! LOL! Get it - chicken but.... well I hope you get it! LOL!



This one started off life as something else! The striped paper was actually off of another "thank you" card I got from someone. I just loved the raspberry colors of it so I tore off the half that wasn't written on and remade it into another card! LOL! I love how it turned out!



This is one of the simplest to make cards and can be made from just scraps! The flower gives it that little extra! Can you see I broke down and actually used one of my SU rhinestone brads! I'm hording them for some reason that's still not clear to me either! LOL! Do you do that with your "goodies"?!



This stamp has to be another all time favorite! I saw another girl use it on her blog (don't remember who's though - sorry!) and I emailed her to find out where she got it! If you want to know it's from Clear Dollar Stamps! I stamped it on designer paper and cut it out to layer it onto this card front! I added the daisy since you can't have a VW bug and no daisies right?! I plan to send it on to a friend of mine back in Va - sure do miss her!
