First of all it has taken me longer to get back with you all because I have been adjusting to a life-changing event. For the first time in almost 50 years I do not have a job! This is all so foreign to me and I am at a loss of what to do next.
Its bittersweet, and yet I feel like I've lost a loved one or a family or something...who would grieve not having to get up at o'dark thirty to drive 30 minutes to a job to stress over for 9 hours and then drive another 30 minutes to get home to plan to repeat the same stressful day all over again. Just silly ole me I guess.
So it is my intent after this initial shock, to embrace this new found freedom and opportunities with a grateful attitude. And to start this off I am going to share a card of "Thankfulness" with everyone that was inspired by Lexi Cards. Thanks Lexi.
Introducing "Lomasi" an adorable little image by Sylvia Zet for Wee Stamps.
I colored her up with copics and stuck with different shades of my two favorite color combinations, aqua and chocolate.
I do like browns because they blend so well with so many colors just like whites and blacks. At first I thought I would use lavendar but then decided to stick with Aqua. I used four different patterned papers from MME collection, the flowers are WOC, and the leaves and flourish come from Marianne Designs.
The inside like the front is layered with browns and aqua just to maintain continuity.
