Creative inspirations anything goes and Divas spots and/or stripes

Hi friends! Sorry for my absence I have been cleaning up the crafty area rather than actually crafting, the dust was immense let me tell you! I also found so many things that I sort of forgot that I had not to mention a tonne of stuff that I have never used (oops) I have even started up a box for my next blog candy and am determined to ink up some more of those stamps that are crying out to be inked even if it's just once lol!
I have to say that I have not been that clear minded of late either as I have been toying with the idea of leaving my job (which I love) after nearly 9 years. But I eventually came to the RIGHT decision and handed in my notice last week. I have a new job that I start next week yay! This does mean I will be working 2 jobs for a bit (the other requiring 4 wks notice) so I may be a bit absent from my crafting until I get more settled.
However it's challenge time again at creative Inspirations and Divas by design! At CI we have the oh so fab theme of anything goes sponsored by The pretty little ribbon shop and at Divas it is spots and/or stripes sponsored by Meljens.
My fab papers are again MME Miss Caroline, my cheesecloth and ribbon are from stash, my flowers are WOC and Prima, my bling and pearl flourish are from Sarah's, my butterfly from little snippets and my Sentiment is SU.
My cute Meljens image has been coloured with prisma pencils and I have added some pink liquid pearls around her too. I have inked all my edges in vintage photo ink.
I would like to enter this into...
OSAAT use a digi/spring, IDIC people, Crafty bloggers network spring time, The crazy challenge anything goes, Party time tues anything goes and Crafty Anns bold and bright.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again, do check out what my teamies have done over at the challenge blogs and join in our challenges too!
Big hugs to you all

Hi Rebekah - another gorgeous card! Such a cute image and love those colours and flowers!

Always a big decision changing jobs, but sometimes you just know that it has to be done. Hope the new job you're starting is going to be fantastic for you.

I have to admit to missing work a little sometimes - but then I think about the problems with childcare (might only have the one, but there is no-one else to look after her, Peter can't do it fulltime and how many people are there chasing jobs that work around school? Thousands!!!) and decide I'm better off sticking with cleaning the holiday let - it also gives me a lot of time for crafting!!

Hi Rebekah, Oh isn't she sweet!! beautifully coloured too and lots of lovely embellis and layout stunning card as always:)

CraftyLoops said...

Rebekah as always your card is so beautiful. I love the flower spray youve done. Congratulations on your new job, I hope the next couple of weeks dont take it out of you though with having to work your notice. Any chance in the middle of working 2 jobs and crafting that you could hop on a ferry to Northern Ireland and clean out my craft room? No? Really? It was worth a try! My New Years Resolutions are failing miserably! The craft room is still a tip and all Ive managed to buy are 2 wee 6x6 paper pads! Im a disaster! Lee x

Another beautiful card Rebekah I'm going to have to practise with my prisma's cos I love the effect!
Don't envy you at all doing two jobs and the home and family (that alone is at least 2 more full time jobs) something has to give so don't over do it!

Hi Rebekah you are very brave to have left your job after 9 years but it must be great to have a new one to go to and you are obviously looking forward to it, I do hope that you will take care of yourself working two jobs for awhile it will surely take a lot out of you, but I wish you all the best in the new one, enjoy. Talking of enjoyment I am getting mine right now looking at this absolutely gorgeous card, you have coloured that image to perfection she look a little treasure, the papers, colours and design are awesome, I love this so much.
