Fresh Milk

Finally I have had a minute to make a card. I hate to say it, but I had to quit my job in order to make that happen.  It was becoming too much.  I have never quit a job without having something lined up so this is a little scary.  Working many hours and not having time to craft for stress relief is not worth it.  So I have called on a couple of leads and I just had to make a card this morning with the new Mojo sketch.  I used a sentiment from TLC.  My card is a 4 X 6.


Patterned Paper:  My Mind's Eye; Recollection
Cardstock:  Bazzil; Recollection
Sentiment:  TLC, Create - Fresh Milk
Embossing Folder:  Sizzix
Ribbon:  Michael's
Star:  Recollection
Spellbinders:  Small and large circles

Oh Lisa I've just read your blog, you had to do what was right for you and as you have said in the past that your job was really busy. You have to have some me time as well. Hopefully you'll find something that suits you and the hours and stress levels soon. Love your card, milk was in the news here last night as we are a dairy producing country they say milk is very expensive $4.40 for 2 litres which is $2.99 USD for about 4.2 pints or 2.1 quarts. Not sure what you pay in the states. Love your fresh milk stamp.
Hugs
