Lots of News!!

First of all, I know you have probably noticed, but my blog posting has become nothing but erratic in the past few weeks. I have had a lot of things going on in my life, and a lot of changes are happening. Luckily, I am actually aware of them this time and they are mostly for the good!! First of all, I FINALLY found a full time job. Since my divorce, I have been living with my Dad which is fine, but not what I want. I desperately want to be out on my own and taking care of myself. I already miss my nephew, but watching him just didn't pay the bills if you know what I mean. So tomorrow morning, in fact, in 8hrs, I start working again and I am THRILLED. I am going back to my old job that I had a couple of years prior to my divorce. I am also excited about this weekend!!! I am going on a little stamping retreat with Mercy Kerin, Pam Varnell, and Jessica is gonna be a BLAST!! I am SO EXCITED that I can't sleep!! So I decided I should stamp, something I have had a really hard time with here lately. I don't know if it is all the changes, the stress of finding a job, the fact that I am trying to have a life, or what, but my mojo has been iffy at best. With that said, and before anyone says anything, I LOVE THIS CARD. It actually came really easily and I love the way it turned out.
I used both the Mojo Monday sketch from this week and this week's There She Goes Challenge, to Pop it Up!! I stamped my flowers and stems and leaves from the Side By Side set from TSG on an MFT Perfect Panel. The flowers were stamped directly on the diecut panel and seperately so that I could cut them out. I colored them with my Copics, and then popped them up. The colors on my card are Really Rust, Mellow Moss and More Mustard. The DP is from the retired SU Autumn Vine pack. My buttons are from SU, and my brads are from Making Memories. The ribbons are SU and the clip is from Joannes. For my sentiment, I used one from the Bloom set.
Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
