Pink & Black Tiddly Inks

My "stamps for sale" blog post has been updated as of today with ELEVEN new sets added! Go check it out here! Feel free to make me an offer, especially if you are interested in multiple sets. I charge actual shipping costs, and I usually use Priority mail with delivery confirmation.

I really enjoy seeing how many challenges I can combine into one really great card. I was able to fashion this cutie for 3 different challenges:

The Pink Elephant - pink & black challenge

Tiddly Inks - Embellies (use buttons, lace, or both)

Crazy4Challenges #43 - Sketch Challenge

I used SU! Pretty in Pink, Whisper White & Basic Black for most of this card. I used some beautiful pink buttons and pretty sparkly pink fluffy stuff from My Favorite Things on her skirt.

Sooooo - I have some news. :) Last week, my boss was out of the office unexpectedly all week, so I didn't want to publicize anything until I had a chance to talk to him. Unfortunately, he wasn't going to be back until Monday (tomorrow), so I had to talk to his boss instead and let him know that.... I was giving my 2-week notice as of Friday. We are doing it - WE ARE MOVING TO CALIFORNIA!!! I can't even believe I'm saying it out loud, but there it is. My last day of work will be July 9. I will then have just about one month to pack up my entire home, hopefully have a giant yard sale, and transfer our entire lives from one side of the country to the other.

Of course it's bittersweet - one minute I'm super-excited and giddy with anticipation. The next minute I'm nervous as hell and sick to my stomach! LOL I am looking at it as an adventure - if it doesn't work out, we can always come back. We don't own our home and we don't intend to buy a home in California, either. Jeremy and Trevor are flying out next week to check out some houses to rent. Jeremy has work lined up out there, and I am going to be doing some work-at-home stuff for Jeremy's mom (book-keeping and stuff like that). Trevor is totally psyched - Cassidy is coming around. It's going to be really hard to say goodbye to our friends - Cassidy and I are going to have the hardest time.

I'm sure I'll be blogging a lot about our impending move, so stay tuned! Peace.
