Hi All, This is a card I made early last month...before I had the blog. My friend Deby, an SU Demo, shared some of her new in-colors with us right after they came out. So I took my piece of riding hood red home to play with. I used my dotted swiss CB embossin folder and SU Bothway Blossoms set. I used the large oval punch to cut out the sentiment. I then masked it with a small oval punch cut from a post it note. Heavily sponged the outer rim in summer sun ink. Colored the daisies in with summer sun as well. Other paper used in this is textured white and old olive. Tos on some brads and ribbon and there you go.
I got some good news today at work. I've been approved to do a compressed pay period at work. I will still work the same number of hours in the pay period, but I'll only have to work 9 days instead if 10. My husband and I carpool to work. But because my hours are less than his, I drive 8 miles past my office to drop him off and then drive the 8 miles back to my office. And then do it again in the evening after work. I figured it out and it means we will be driving 260 miles LESS each pay period! Can you say PRAISE GOD!!!!!! How does this work you ask? Well, becaus I'll be working longer hours, he will drop me off on his way to work and then pick me up in the afternoons. That's 16 miles a day and 100 miles the 1 day I don't work. Hubby will be working from home that day.
Another way that this is a blessing is that I can schedule all dr. appoinments on my "pass" day so I won't have to sick leave to go to the dr. AND we will get to sleep in an extra half hour in the morning! Woohoo!!!!
This new schedule starts tomorrow. I am so happy that God has provided some relief for our car and our wallets. :-)
