This set was so much fun to use that I have another card in the works!

Pink Pirouette Daisy

Today's card is one I made last week but didn't get around to posting it until today! It didn't quite turn out like I invisioned it would, but I like it all the same! I stamped the image with White craft ink then embossed with white embossing powder (looks like vanilla). Does embossing powder get old and turn color? Maybe it is because I did it on the pink cardstock.

Back to School!!! and work

I hope you had a wonderful weekend,the last weekend of the summer! Today was the first day of school for my two youngest Megan (Senior) & Nick (Sophomore). It was also the first day of my new job! After being home with the kids full-time off and on for the last 17 years, I decided it was time to get back into the working world again, and today I started my new job (part-time) as a special ed paraeducator. I was in this field part-time four years ago but was cut due to funding. I love working with these special children and I'm looking forward to a fun and rewarding school year!
Megan is so excited for her SENIOR year, Nick on the other hand was wishing for more summer vacation!
Oh, I almost forgot, I finally got some new rubber! Now off to get some stamping done! Thanks for stopping by!
