Oh Well

Well, finally heard on Friday that the job I wanted had gone to the other candidate - apparently we were very close and they had a very difficult time choosing between us (my heart bleeds for them!!).

There is another job that has always been in the background, but it's not what I really want (means still dealing with financial services & I've been trying to get away from that) & it's also further away than I would really like to be travelling, but it would mean that I wouldn't have to take a pay cut and would get away from daytime telly!

I have also got another couple of interviews next week and an application for a brilliant job, which I could walk to & would also mean a pay increase!! Don't want to get my hopes up on that one though - look what happened last time.

Anyway, back to card making. As a friend of mine took my only stock sympathy card some time ago & I've been in that sort of mood, thought I would have a go at a replacement. Hope you like.

Nice work with the scoring in the middle. Did you ever think about doing what Tracy does? You are so talented, I don't see why you can't.

Elisabeth said...

Your card is very elegant!

I'm very sorry to hear about your job, that is awful. The job your meant to have is out there, when you find it you'll be sooo happy you didn't get this job. That how we've gotten through our share of.... It's was close but we went in another direction. Or I loved this one, your to valuable to replace right now, so I didn't promote you. This was my poor hubby not me.

ANyway.... Hang in there.
