Yeah!!!!!

I've got a job interview - it's not until 19th March, so plenty time to get some more, but at least I've got one!! Someone actually thought I'd be good for their company!!! Sorry to go on, but I'm so happy I could puke (not a nice image, sorry).


Anyway, it's mothers day and as well as searching hard for a new job this week, I've been making stuff, already posted the card keeper and candle, so here's a picture of the card I made for my mum - I'm so pleased with it as I took the time to design the layout on a piece of paper first, and thought really carefully where to place the elements, think it shows and I'll be using this more often to help.


This is the sketch I did on which the card is based - this is my own, but is so simple it's probably already out there somewhere!




I also made a photo wallet for my MIL (to go with the candle & box), with pictures of Geoff and Charlie from when we went to Disney last summer - hope you like this too, the instructions for the photo wallet can be found at Splitcoast Stampers
