Part Time Workforce

Mema's Store - Click Here

Hello all and yep it's true...Mema has joined the workforce once again but with a few changes along the way.

I'm still retired but I just can't sit home when I feel that I can still contribute to society and perhaps influence our future generation.  After all they will be our leaders someday and if we survive to see that become a reality I am hoping that I NOT "live to regret it" (ha ha) sort of speak.

I've decided to work part-time and offer up my time to our Community Colleges in their effort to teach and educate our children.  Not as many hours and certainly not the same level of stress as found in corporate america.  This is purposeful work where I can add value and go home smiling and looking forward to the next day, not to mention I still have time to feed my paper passion.

Speaking of crafting, I do have a card to share with everyone.


This card was created using an air brushed image from Wee Stamps that I purchased a while back and added a bit of Frosted Lace Stickles to the wings and I darkened the hair just a little using my Pro Markers.

The designer paper is My Minds Eye and the card-stock is Recollections brand.  The image is layered on a Spellbinders die cut and cheese-cloth from JoAnne's.  

I finished the card by surrounding it with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and some pearls from my stash.   


The inside uses the same designer paper and has a space for a personal message. The finished card size is approximately 5.5 x 5.5.
