Finally the end is in sight !!

Good morning to you all

It has been sometime since I managed to be normal on my crafting, blogging and commenting, however the end is now in sight and a new beginning is accompanying it.  I made a decision a couple of months ago to move out of Education and my current position due to, well just far to much work in the hours of the contract.  I have been working most nights just to be able to do my job at the level of satisfaction that I require of myself in any job.  When I did find some time to craft it had become difficult for me to muster the enthusiasm to even colour (which is my favourite bit).  However I have now found myself a new job and handed my notice in at the beginning of this week.  So in three weeks and counting, I leave my current post and I am moving on to pastures new.  I am looking forward to setting in to my new role and returning to my crafting and cannot wait.

Anyway that is the update on my time and here is another leaving card made for one of my team who recently handed her notice in, she has now moved to another department in the Company, so wishing her well was this card ordered by my boss for her.

Again this card has extra signing leaves to allow for all those signatures that are needed on a keepsake card.


This is an 8" square card layered in pink and the white, the white has been run through an embossing folder and distressed with spun sugar.  The ribbon wrapped around and the triple layer triple length bow added.  A fancy button a little charm those lovely pearls and the floral flourish finish the card, along with some stickles on the flowers, sorry you cannot see it that well.
The sentiment has been computer generated.

She loved it :)

I would like to thank all of my followers and visitors and commentators for their lovely comments, which have kept me going over the last few months as things got harder and harder at work.  To thank you all I will have some candy tomorrow and there will also be some on the WRS website too.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - I know don't faint, but it is Saturday and I am no longer doing any work from home :)
