You Rock!

Yeesh! What a week! I started a new job at the beginning of the month and after 3 weeks I think people figure I've got it down solid - not so much!! I have very little patience with my slow speed and need to ask a bazillion questions. Being new is just exhausting, but exhilarating at the same time. 

Today's card is dedicated....to me! I have to stop being so hard on myself and celebrate the knowledge I have gained versus what I don't yet know. As an HR professional, I've given this speech to so many new employees over the years, and I need to practice what I preach!

I won this stamp at the SU! convention this summer. I actually received a different one, but one of the Pals traded with me. I think this is such a fun stamp!

I broke out my Crumb Cake Blendabilities and played a bit. The Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Cajun Craze make a fun trio. The masking technique was used the for sentiment.

TIP: Masking is made easy when using the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig. Use post it notes to mask off the area and stamp away!

TIP: Vary the size and placement of your layers. My tipped version gives a very different look from a standard 4" x 5 1/4".

I'll be honest with you, lining up the Candy Dots against the lines in the DSP was challenging for this woman who likes everything properfly aligned!

I'll be breaking out this single stamp again soon - I'm thinking bright, summer colors with a shining sun. I know I'm ready for summer!

Thanks much for stopping. Stop back for the Pal's Paper Arts challenge.

Stay tuned to my blog for my 150th post! There will be blog candy. Not automatically recieving my blog in your mailbox? Enter your email address in the field in the right column. It's fun knowing what I enjoy is appreciated by others.
