Kisses

Another very simple card for today as I printed the image too big but that's okay, I still like it and had so much fun coloring it!! The digi is from Saturated Canary and is called Kisses.



My interview went well today! I got a "Conditional Job Offer"!! I was given the choice between being a cashier or working on either the Skyfari or Tram. I figure you only live once so I chose the Skyfari or Tram! Because of the safety concerns and such, they need to do background checks and some other things but I should be an "official" zoo employee in a few weeks!

There are no words to describe how I feel. Beyond excited! My dream is becoming a reality! I'm just so happy!!!

Have a fabulous week! I hope to have lots to share with you as long as the crafty mojo holds out!!

If all else fails, add pink, sparkle and a butterfly!

In Summer

Goodness! It's been a whole week since I posted? Eeek!! Lots has been happening around here so crafting took a back seat but hopefully I'm back now!

I gave my 2 week notice at the grocery store I work at this week. Sam pointed out that we moved here so I could work at the zoo and why hadn't I followed that dream? So I took the plunge, gave my notice and put in my application at the zoo!! and....I have an interview on Sunday!! I am beyond excited as this has been a dream for well over 20 years! I will probably be a cashier in guest services or possibly help with the rides or who knows what but that's okay, it's a foot in the door and it's the ZOO!!! 

I also have been busy with Jamberry. It has really taken off for me and I am having so much fun with it!!

Enough of my ramblings though, on to today's card! I really love this stamp by Cathy Delanssay called In Summer. She looks so carefree...so relaxed and ready for whatever summer brings her way!



I felt a little rusty with my coloring and putting the whole card together but I think it turned out nice. What do you think?



I'm entering this card into the following challenges~
Have a wonderful day and if you have any spare good luck vibes, please send them my way on Sunday for my interview.

If all else fails, add pink, sparkle and a butterfly!

Polished to Perfection

I wanted a card to send to my friend who introduced me to Jamberry and also who is my sponsor to thank her as joining Jamberry and hosting my launch party has been so much fun!!

I thought this stamp set, Polished to Perfection from MFT was perfect! 



Hope you have a great day!

Bouquet

The July Challenge at the Whimsy Stamps Facebook group is Your Favorite Colors so I thought I'd play along!

My favorite color is pink and I love it paired with orange and green. I know it sounds funky but it works!!  I inked up the newly released Bouquet from Time For Tea Designs for Whimsy Stamps. 





I'm entering this card into the following challenges~
Have a wonderful day! I slipped on some wet grass and fell so I'm moving pretty slow and taking it easy. Darn it stinks to get older and not heal as quickly!
