Wicked Wednesdays, Sketch Saturday, and ATC Challenges

Well that came quicker than I expected - good news!  I was really excited to get an e-mail from a woman I used to work with, at a job I loved, asking if I was interested in a part-time job.  Long story short, I took the job and I start one week from Monday.  I started out doing this same job almost 10 years ago, and I loved it.  I'm really happy to be going back, and life is just finally feeling like it's moving forward.  Instead of one step forward, 2 steps back, we're finally at a point where we get to take a few steps forward before we have to take any back!  LOL  It's a really good feeling.  The best part is that I don't go in to work until 3:00 on Thursdays, and I have Fridays and weekends off.  AND I'm out by 3:00 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  So I shouldn't have to worry about work interfering with my creative time!  ha!  ;)  Seriously, though, art is like therapy to me, and I just can't imagine my life without art being a big part of it.  This job allows me to do that, did I mention that I'm super excited?  :)
So anyway - today is Wednesday, which means it's time for a new challenge at

Our theme this week is FLOWERFUL - check out the new post and link up here.  I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits.  DP is from Stampin' Up!  Gemstone stickers are from my stash.

I have another ATC to share with you today, too.  This one is for the:


This adorable digi image is from Digi Darla, the background map is a rubber stamp that I just can't for the life of me remember where it's from!  I colored with Prismacolor markers and spritzed with Silver Foil Smooch Spritz.  I simply adore making ATC's.  I like to put an adhesive magnet on the back and send them along with a card to a friend.
Last for today is my card for the:

I used Emo Angel Little Dip from Just Some Lines, colored with Prismacolor and Stampin' Up! markers.  Brads are from SU!  DP is from My Mind's Eye.  Sticker sentiment is from my stash.
