Chocking I know!

Hello my friends! I am back for the second day in a row. Can't remember when that happened last time. LoL Finally seeing the light of the tunnel, the meeting I was so stressed out about is over and went fine. I think I love the Employment office at the moment. LoL Such lovely lady that will be my contact person there, now I can relax and make the best of something that most people wouldn't enjoy doing. I see this as the start of my new job and I will totally do my best to make it work. Tomorrow it's time for the final (?) meeting with my psychologist and then I can do weekend. If the kids wasn't sick... How typical isn't that? When you have the preoccupied week in ages, the kids get sick. Just have to like it, right? Couldn't have done this week without my mum. Thanks for your help!

So I actually have a card as well. Yepp! It's true, I have managed to fininsh a card that isn't a design team card. That is also the first time in ages. Have been looking forward to using some of my stamps, but in the end I used a digital one anyway. This one is from Sugar Nellie and is called Warm Winter Wishes, also found in rubber. I have had this little cutie coloured for a while now but hasn't managed to get it on to a card before. I have coloured it with my Prisma pencils, still learning but if feels like I'm getting there. I took inspiration from the Emperor Penguins that has little tassels in their ears and some yellow oranges around here and there.

My designer papers are from Bearly Mine Design and from the digi kit called Christmas Fun. The sketch I have followed is from the Sugar Bowl. Have just sneaked in a little doily in between as I wanted to break the  colours up a little bit. Sentiment stamp from LOTV, dotty stamp from Stempel glade. Ribbon and buttons from The Glitterpot, metal corner from WOC and wooden snowflake from BunnyZoes. I think that cover it all. Hope you like it!

Love n hugs
