PDC #184

Hi peeps!  Hope everything is well with you. It has been a strange week for me because Claire is away to Canterbury, UK for her school trip.  The is the first time that she is travelling without us outside Holland.  It feels so strange that the house is without her.

My laptop is giving me problem again and I am using the IPAD which I am not very keen.  The typing is taking much slower than normal.

Back to card.  It's colour challenge over at The Play Date Cafe.  For this card, I am using PB Sundial  and HA Envelope Pattern stamps. Both are stamped on the cardstock and heat embossed in white.  I am entering this card into Simon Says Stamps


I have some good and bad news to share.  I have been offered a 7-weeks assignment (until the end of the school year) as a teaching assistant at my current school starting on Monday.  It has been ages since I last work fulltime and I am a little worried if I am able to cope with work and family as Marcel is not at home during the weekdays.

As I will be working fulltime, I am afraid that I will not have much time for my crafty work which also mean less visiting your blogs.  I sincerely hope that you will hang on there with me.

It has been a long post today and thank you for listening.

Congratulations on the job, Lai-Yoke! I always look at the time work takes away from my crafting as more money for stamps--LOL! Wonderful card--love how you showcased that gorgeous flower!

Oh, I can't imagine how quiet it must seem with Claire gone! I hope she's having a great time :)
I tried borrowing the boys' tablet to try and yep...I like my keyboard. I like actual keys for my fingers to press down!
Family comes first, always. Anyone who doesn't understand that isn't really worth having around - the rest of us will just be happy to see you when you have the time! Congratulations on the offer :)
