Good morning all you lovely folk. Hope you are well or as well as you can be.
So glad I all gave you a titter last time with the shananaghans at The Pond. I can laugh now but at the time, I did want to help Mr D's throat by massaging it with both hands!!!
He is better now and there has been no repeat of Saturday/Sunday night, I am relieved to report.
I would like to extend a splashy welcome to Beverly who has kindly clicked on the followers button. Its lovely of you to become the 90th in our merry band. I will have to start polishing some Paddle Prizes if I reach the dizzy heights of 100.
Now, today's card is the second in a trio I made, the first one being on my last post here.
Although the flower die is actually called Sweet Christine, I thought that the flowers made up this way, looked similar to Sweet Williams when clustered together (run with me on that one lol!!!)
I then decided to do a CAS ish card with a single stalk of them.
Pink card (PMD)
Cheery Lynn Sweet Christine die
SB Carnation Creations die (for the leaves)
Pink markers (2 shades)
White gel pen.
Crafters Companion sentiment stamp
Memento Dew Drop Rose Bud ink pad
2mm white pearls
Docrafts glitter enamel dots
The picture doesn't quite show the domed shape of the flower as I put foam pads under the centre of the flower but not at the sides, to add further dimension.
The third in the trio will be here at the weekend so hope you can stop by then to have a peek.
Today, I am off to CE Towers to be John's glamorous assistant at a workshop (Wendy is back in Spain so I've been called off the subs bench lol!!!) I think I'm on tea/coffee duty.
I have the day off as my sweet news, as per the title is that yesterday was my last shift at work.
I handed in my notice last week as I have been offered a job working for a charity, which I have accepted. Those who have been paddling at The Pond for a while will know that, despite the jokes, I did love my job and enjoyed what I did.
The turning point was the end of last year when I had several shift changes in quick succession, which resulted in my having to give up my volunteering at the RSPCA and, just before Christmas, cancelling a break we had planned for Mr D's birthday (I think I had a grumble about it on here)
At that point, I decided to look for something else, applied for 3 jobs and got offered two and that was that.
Its a bit scary but its something new to get my duck bill into. I had a lovely card from everyone at work and there were even tears shed by a couple of my colleagues (probably of joy hahaha!!!)
I won't be starting my new job for a couple of weeks so I have some time off to do an early Spring clean and have a bit of a rest and craft,
Well, that's the news folks. Wish me luck!
