More Rainbows to Share

Good Morning. I guess I am in the mood to see some rainbows and sunny skies. I've had a bit of bad news I've been wrestling with and I could use a pick me up. My team at work was told we are being released in April. Once again I find myself being downsized. It's time to change careers; I'm tired of being let go.

OK, so now you have the news onto today's card. I made this card last week for one of the challenges at the Outlawz. It was so fun to see it come together. We were to use a rainbow on our project and rather than go with an image which had a rainbow...I built my own.



Have to run. I have my first interview this morning and I am really nervous!

Take care.

I've been scrapbooking again!

Somehow I got my scrapbook mojo back. When I sat down to play with this image I had no idea what I was going to make but then this layout came to me and I love how it turned out.

The image is from The Stamping Boutique,
Fairy Cynthia's Rainbow.


Close up:




I pulled out the sewing machine again for this one. I pleated the ribbon on the bottom all by myself. LOL! Little things make me happy.

Ok, off to get another project completed.

Take care.

I'm Late Again

I'm so sorry. I totally forgot my post this week for the Stamping Boutique's new challenge. This week we want to see some stitching on your card. That's right, pull out those sewing machines and let's get busy.

Usually I hand stitch on a card but for this one I did pull out the machine.


I used Birthday Bunny on my card. He is too cute and that is me after eating birthday cake. LOL!

Take care.
