A Girl and Her Pumpkin

I know, I know, shocking--2 cards in one day!!  I was in the crafty zone! Plus I just couldn't wait to ink up this new stamp from Whimsy Stamps, A Girl and Her Pumpkin by Crissy Armstrong!! My favorite season is autumn so this is sure to be a favorite stamp!!



Isn't she just darling??

You're so thoughtful!

This card is going to a special little lady! When I order from SugarPea Designs I usually get a handwritten note on my packages saying Thank You by owner Wendy's daughter. So I thought it would be fun to send her a thank you for brightening my day!

I really had fun making this card--I say that often, don't I? But it's true. I just love creating-it makes my soul smile.




I used an old SugarSketch--actually it's the first one they put out back in March of this year but it worked great for this card!

Have a wonderful day! My kids went back to school yesterday and had good days so I hope it's a sign of a great year for them. I'm enjoying today before I head back to work tomorrow for a 9 day work stretch.  Be happy!!

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

Daydream Believer

Hello there! Hope this finds everyone doing fantastic!! I made it through my first 4 days of work at the zoo--yay! There is so much to learn but I think after another week or so I'll feel more comfortable. I am working in Guest Services and ticketing. 

I must say that every day that I go to work I pinch myself and squeal because I work at a zoo!! The #1 ranked zoo in the world as ranked by Trip Advisor! So awesome!!

With getting use to working at a different place (more hours than at the grocery store), getting the kids ready for back to school (they start Tuesday) and adjusting to Sam's new railroad job (he left today for Montana)--my crafting has been on the back burner but I finally got things taken care of and couldn't wait to craft today!!

I just got this fun Kraftin' Kimmie stamp set, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, and couldn't wait to get it inky!!



I don't know about you, but I love to sit and daydream! My daydreams are usually of my #1 thing on my bucket list, a trip to Africa. What do you daydream about??

I'm entering this card into the following challenges~


Have a super day and I hope to be back more often now! Thanks for stopping by!!

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

Silver Fairy

A quick post tonight as my Mom is visiting and I need to get to bed and get some sleep so I'm ready for our day tomorrow at the County Fair to see one of Annabelle's paintings on display for the entire school district!!

I did get the job at the zoo--not sure I updated about that. I am starting on Tuesday and will work as a cashier first and then move to other areas. I'm beyond excited!!

Anyhoo, onto tonight's card featuring a stamp from Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps called Silver Fairy. I'm not going to lie, this stamp has been on my wishlist for so long--I was so excited to finally get it!!

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!
