Day 8 - I'm thankful for...

...my job!  Seriously, I'm grateful that I have a job, for sure.  But...where I work fits me so well.  After being downsized from a management job after 41 years, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do.  I knew I needed to find a job, since I would need insurance coverage, but I didn't want to be a manager anymore.  I was unemployed for a year, but then found my current employer.  I get to do payroll and benefits, which are my loves, and I can provide strong administrative support to the managers.  A perfect fit!

Today's project is one of our Make and Takes from the Louisville Regional.  This one has lots of texture to it, with alot of distressing.  The grid background is a small stamp called "Good Grid" and is about 3" square.  I love the element of grunge that it can add.  We used marker to rubber for the flower, then distressed the whole focal piece using the tea stain stampin' spot from our distressing kit.  I certainly need to use that ink spot more!  I love how it grunges things up!

Do you like the grunge look?  Or are you more "clean and simple"?  Don't forget to vote today!

  2. Some days I like grunge, other days clean and simple. I am with Lisa, I love to stamp! Why does everything else get in the way of it??

    Love the card! I know I always say that, but you are good!!
