"Life is like...

a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get".--Forrest Gump.

How true it is! Sometimes you bite into the yummy caramel ones and sometimes you get the icky cherry ones. That new job I shared about a few weeks ago didn't pan out. I actually quit after the first day. I won't bore you with the details, let's just say it wasn't where God wanted me. All is good though, I am back at church as the administrative assistant but now on a full-time basis. Even with the full-time hours, I have the availability/flexibility to do many more things than if I had stayed at the other job. Things like canning, watching my son play football and stamping. And it all came right on time because I had an exciting offer extended to me this week....
To join the Cornish Heritage Farms Design Team!!!!!!!!!!!!
Talk about a whole box of yummies, lol! I am very excited to be working with the owners Richard and Liz as well as the other fabulous designers on the team. To celebrate the occasion, I had to make a card with one of my favorite CHF's stamps.
This is the Artsy Blooms stamp from the Shady Tree Studios line. It is watercolored with inks and paired with some new Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper.
Other items used: Spellbinders Ovals, Labels 8, Kaiser pearls, May Arts ribbon, DCWV paper

I hope your day is filled with the good stuff! Thanks for stopping by.
