Well I did it! About a month ago I stopped at my local scrapbook store to do some shopping and I just happen to know many of the sales associates who work there due to my frequent stops, when a customer asked for assistance with a Cuttlebug and the girls were not familiar with it, but were trying to help her. I offered to help since I use mine on a regular basis. The woman took notes and was very appreciative. The sales associates thanked me, and joked about it, but handed me an application to work at the store since there was an opening. I thought about it, and I could pick up hours as a nurse and make more money; however, this has an interest in a FUN job instead of worrying abut bodily functions which I have done for twenty years. I love nursing, but I wouldn't mind a day or two of something else. I worked at a Sam's Club when I was in college so this bar code and scanning is something new. I do like challenges.
I did a card following a sketch for the Pixie Dust Challenge using the Sugar Plum Fairy. My daughter did ballet for many years, and I always loved the Christmas show with the velvet and pearls so I incorporated that into my card. (I WON THE PIXIE DUST CHALLENGE!!!) I also plan to submit this for the Crazy for Challenges (C4C56) for the bling. I again made this into an easel card.
I also worked on a card for this weeks Challenge with Some Odd Girls which has a monochromatic theme and I used the Tiny Tia image and picked the color orange. I followed this weeks Mercy's Sketch for my card.
