Thank You : VLV FEB2012 Wk 1

Well I'm in my last few days of my current job....wait....I haven't actually told you about that?! Let's get back to that in a minute then, shall we?! ANYWAYS, I whipped up this card and dedicate it my office...for the last (almost) five years of keeping me laughing, crying and on my toes.

I used the Viva La Verve February 2012 Week 1 sketch as my starting point. Pretty clean & simple, but quick to do when you're in a mad rush to finish the sketches because of some poorly managed time and a prior mental note that I wanted to participate in every sketch this year. LOL! I did, however, finally whip out my MFT Dizzy Doily Die-namics and some half pearls to shake things up. The patterned paper is some old Bella Bleu DSP from SU! (long since retired) that I have in my stash of (mainly) retired paper. Seems like I should really get on using it up since I'm quite far behind with the new colors and usually just find a similar color in my existing stock that works with the combo.

On to my other news. I start a new job on March 12th! I'm anxious about it, but I know it was the right move. To celebrate, I had two fabulous ladies take me out for supper last night. Makes me think I should get onto my mom's trend of changing jobs more frequently - just so we have an excuse to get out & do a little celebrating =)

Have a great weekend!


  1. Love the way you used the sketch and that MFT die is fabulous (on my wish list too LOL). No matter that the paper is old - still looks fabulous :)
