Good Morning. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I love the holidays but I also have to say I like when everything gets "back to normal". It was nice waking up and not having to think about all the things for the Holiday I still needed to do. I am on vacation this week so I can stamp, take down all my decorations, spend time with friends and basically just do what I want. Needless to say stamping will be on that list.
Isn't this little lady cute? She is from The Greeting Farm. Her name is Madelynn.
I was going to send this to my Niece as a thank you card for my XMAS gift (a gift card from my LSS) but I'm thinking that maybe I want to send it to her as a congratulations card for her new job. She got laid off in February and has been working odd jobs until she found a full time one. She finally got hired by a local company 2 weeks ago. She starts 1/4. I am so happy for her.
I thought of the idea of the congrats card instead of the thank you when I saw that some challenges were new beginnings. I obviously thought of New Years cards but when I was making this I thought that starting a new job was definitely a new beginning and remembered that I wanted to send my Niece something but got too busy with the Holidays.
The challenges this fits are:
Paperplay - New Beginnings
Daring Cardmakers - New Beginnings
Quixotic - Lace
If the Shoe Fits - Coloring
Charisma Cardz - Anything but XMAS
Cupcake Craft - A time for Celebration
A Spoonful of Sugar - Sketch
Thank you for stopping by today. Let me know what you think of my cards. I love reading all of your comments. They make me smile and make my day brighter!!!
