First, her party was held quite early because she actually just moved last Friday, but she's an accountant and she was more than just a little busy during tax season so we got together while she was still able to think about something besides numbers! But I couldn't let her leave without one more card to remind her how much I love her.
In March, Reverse Confetti released a great die and stamp set (which I also just used on this card and will definitely use many, many more times!) I already knew that I was going to get it - but was completely sold when I saw Jen's use of the die and stamp set as a little house because I knew it would make a perfect card for my friend. So here's my take on "Happy New Home" also using the current sketch challenge at Reverse Confetti.
FYI - all dies and stamps are from Reverse Confetti (linked below) except that I didn't have the Edgers die that Jen used to make the roof which would have made things much, much easier had I had it! The heart "grass" below the sentiment is actually a row of five hearts so I cut it and just moved the die over to recut it.
So on to my changes. I also talked in that post linked at the top about my going back into the work world and the fear that I was feeling, but that I knew that God cared about every detail and He had a plan. Well...He definitely had a plan - and it was that that particular job wouldn't work out. Long, long story. But much more importantly, He had a better plan!! I have left that job and I start tomorrow at a new job that thrills me beyond words. The work is exciting, the employer is more "important" - and to top everything off - it pays more, has better benefits, requires less hours and is exactly 3 1/2 miles from my home!! How lucky did I get?!
I am going to work at town hall for my little Town of Parker! I call it more "important" because I will am working with taxpayer money and helping to appropriately budget for town safety and recreation. I take that very, very seriously. I also won't be stuck in an office. My official title is "Accounting Technician - Interdepartmental Liaison" (definitely need to shorten that title.) And the departments are located around the town - the Rec Center, the Field House, the Parker Arts Pace Center - and more!! I am a small town girl at heart - and it thrills me that I get to spend my days in my own town!
Praise be to God!!
The paper is my favorite We R Memory Keepers Chalkboard which is getting a little hard to find. I've seen individual sheets at franticstamper.com and I have seen 6x6 pads at Amazon.
