Saturday I spent the day catching up on a few things around the house, and also going in to my former place of employment to do a few things. They haven't yet completely closed so my services will be needed there a bit longer. Then I went to the grocery store and did the weekly shopping. I organized the notes I had taken while training, and then we went to visit with my brother and sister in law.
Yesterday morning I was determined to get the weekly cooking done so I could have some card making time in the afternoon! I hadn't made a card in over a week and I was having serious crafting withdrawals!
Did you see the new images that were released at Squigglefly on Saturday? I could so relate to the Goodbye Cruel World image! That was how I felt on Friday night with all of that information swimming in my head! So, I decided to make a card for the girl who trained me using it.
One of the things I love about making your own cards is the ability to personalize them to the occasion, and this is definitely one of those times when I never would have been able to find the perfect card in a store!
I also wanted to make a card for one of the cashiers who helped in my training. She is a really sweet, young girl who went out of her way to help me. I came in one morning to find that she had copied some things for me and had taken some notes on points she noticed I was having trouble remembering. It's not often you run across people who go out of their way to help someone like that. Here's the card I made for her.
I used the Gone Bananas image by Jackie Mathews for her card which is another image that totally describes how I was feeling!
Both of these were colored with Copic markers and the sentiments were computer generated.
Today is Vicki's team's last time at the Squigglefly Blog Challenge. I hope you'll go by and let them all know how much you've appreciated them sharing their creativity with us and a special thank you to Vicki for giving us such fun challenges for the past six months!
I am not going to have as much crafting time as I used to have until I learn my new job better, so please bear with me! I will try to have something for you to see every other day. This is also cutting majorly into my time to visit your blogs and comment - so please don't get your feelings hurt if I don't get by for a while!
Have a wonderful day, and thanks for looking!
