Hip & Hop and Big News

Well I have been wanting to make this card for sometime to re-cycle or upcycle.  I used a tag and twine that I got from a Black Sheep that I bought as a decoration for Easter.  I thought  it looked vintage and was perfect for a card.  I pulled the twine out and cut it into three pieces and put it back into the tag.  I also have some BIG news that I got a nursing job so I have to start working full time on March 19th so I have one more week of freedom.  It will be great to have health care benefits again instead of paying for horrible insurance.  It has been nice to not have stress and I have to knock on some wood, but I have not had any colds or sinus infections this past year and I have been exercising regularly so I just hope that I continue with my good behaviors when I go back to work. I will also have to go to bed at a decent time.
