Today's card was designed and created by the lovely Danielle, she had made it and sent it to me last Monday, which is why I had totally forgotten about it by Saturday I think, or maybe I am just going 'senile'!!
It is such a pretty card and fits the sketch perfectly. Danielle used Stampin'Up! 'Fresh Florals" Designer Series Paper for the background of the card, accenting the 'Powder Pink' with Silver an white, the pretty border Danielle has designed was made with a decorative border punch, topped with ribbon and some SU 'Sequin trim' in Silver.
The sentiment is from a SU stamp set called 'Colour Seasons' which was die cut using a nesting die set from the Range, to finish the card Danielle used some pretty metallic thread to wrap around the card and some pretty sparkling gemstones.
Such a stunning card Danielle, thank you so much for taking part in the Challenge and I apologise for forgetting your card XXX
So did any of you get any Craft Bargains during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals? I did't really look to be honest, well I had a brief look on those that had sent an email through, but I wasn't really tempted by anything.
We had some positive news yesterday, Paul went for his first Interview in 34 years, he was very nervous, he was told it was going to be a 'Competency Based Interview' so he spent the weekend thinking up answers for questions like "Where do you so yourself in 5 years time'' and What is your greatest weakness?", he had good answers for each of them, he was up and ready hours before his interview time, he just wanted it to be over.
He went along and he told me that it was more like a friendly chat than an interview, luckily he has had a wide range of skills that transfer over to this new position with Airbus.
He got home and about an hour later is mobile phone rang and it was the man from the Agency that sent him the job to look at, he asked how he thought his interview went. Paul just said he thought that it went well, it was relaxed and conversation flowed without any awkwardness, Paul then said that it would be Friday before he heard about the job.. The chap from the agency replied, "well they must have liked you as they don't need to see the other candidate, the want to know how soon you can start!!!! So I am thrilled to say that HE GOT THE JOB!!!
The relief on Paul's face bought a lump to my throat, I am so very proud of him xxx
So that's all for today, I hope you all manage to stay dry and warm,
Thanks again Danielle for the lovely challenge card,
Love and Hugs,
