Hello everyone! I managed to get a couple of cards done this weekend and both of them are for the current Kitchen Sink Sketch Challenge. I have even a couple more ideas for this sketch that's how inspiring I found it.
Anyhow, the card I'll share with you today kind of ties in with the courage I'm having to find in myself as I enter the work force again after 7 years! Today I had my second day at my bookkeeping job and man I feel so overwhelmed with all the things I'm worried I'll forget. Tomorrow I start my regular 9 to 3 job as an Accounts Receivable clerk and and I'm on pins and needles waiting to meet my new co-workers. I'm anxious to know how well I'll jive and how long it will take me to get in the swing of things again. If there's one thing I can say I'm not afraid of learning and I'm determined enough to do it right.
The sentiment of this card I had to make myself and the line actually came from a Barbie song on my daughter's ipod. It's funny where we tend to find our inspiration isn't it? It holds so true though, without courage we fail to see the possibilities in life. I know I should have used the printer to make the sentiment instead of using a combo of stamps and freehand but I didn't want to fiddle around with the layout (plus I did the ribbon ruffles first and couldn't exactly run it through the printer.)
Well I hope you have a fabulous day and thanks so much for stopping by. Today I'm grateful for my family's health and strength during stressful times. What are you grateful for?
