My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

15 March 2013

Peddling Like Crazy

Hello - firstly I want to say a big "thank you" to everyone who gave me their best wishes yesterday for my interview.  The good news is I got the job!! I am so happy as not only will I be returning to part time hours, but the school holds a lot of memories for me as I went there as a child and so did my children and it is just 5 minutes round the corner, so walking distance.

I finish in my current job on Thursday 28th March and start there after the Easter break on Tuesday 16th April. That means I will now have more time to put into my love of crafting and finally use my sewing machine!! Life is good!

So onto today's card:

Card Ingredients:

LOTV Pre-Coloured Image
Kaisercraft Mini Greeting Stamp
Spellbinders Nesties Circles
