Thank goodness it's nearly the weekend, as I've had a shocker of a week!! In short, STILL don't know what is happening and if I am being made redundant or not - we have been told that we will find out more tomorrow... ahhh!!! I do wish they'd hurry up and get on with it all, it's coming up for three weeks and I still don't know much more than I did on day one!
So it was the perfect timing for my washing machine to develop a fault and refuse to pump water in (I think it caught a gremlin off the fridge, which is still trying to cook the food instead of keeping it cool) and for me to get a puncture... oh deep joy... there goes the wages that I don't know if I'm going to be getting after this month :-/
The only positive is that my mum (and MIL) are doing my washing for me, and bless my mum, not only has she washed our clothes but they have all been returned ironed!! I have been handwashing (I have a blister on my left index finger to prove it!!) our "smalls" though... I know she loves us, but there are limits :-D
Anyway, enough rambling, onto today's card
I bought some Kraftin Kimmie stamps from Zoe Bunny's on the bank holiday as they had a sale and HOW could I resist!!
I teamed the Emilia with some Lime Twist "Out of the Blue" papers (I got mine here) which seemed a great choice. I love the little plane which comes with this image, as I can see it being used on it's own or as a background stamp.
Oddly I raided my scrapbook stash and used some Thickers foam letters to make the Hi sentiment. I'm going to be honest and say that there has been a bit of a rush on my cards that can be used as notelets from my colleagues whose children are off to Uni this year, but I might just keep this one for myself... actually might not have a choice if come the end of the week I have no colleagues!!
Ahh, good job I have a sense of humour about things!!
Back to the card, I've been trying REALLY hard to improve my colouring, I think I'm getting there with the hair, but I still have muck ups... and I'm still struggling with where the light is coming from, and I'm clinging onto the comment from the uber talented Gayle who assured me that light can come from any direction... I'm not sure she meant all at once, but hey I'm clinging onto threads!!
I also think my Momento is running out of juice, do they do a re-inker for these? If you know pop me a comment! I don't know why but I sometimes really struggle to get the Kraftin Kimmie stamps to stamp cleanly all over - maybe one of those rockabloc things would be a good idea - again if anyone has any views please let me know!!
Thanks for stopping by
