Good Morning Chica's!!

Hope your weekend was a fabulous one! I wanted to say a BIG thank you to everyone who wished me well with my interview last Friday. I am so happy to say that it did the trick because...I GOT THE JOB! Wahoooooooo! So THANK YOU!

Last year was such a downer of a year for us with my hours being cut back and eventually being laid off. We were eating into our savings just trying to stay afloat. I've been so grateful to all of you who gave me words of support and encouragement during my layoff. You really were my sanity during that stressful period. So as a thank you, I'm putting together some blog candy to share with you all later in the week! So keep a look out for it!

This week's There She Goes challenge (TSG38) is a color challenge from Trendsetter Jodi Collins! She is challenging us to use the colors red, pink and aqua on a card or project!

I didn't really have anything aqua in color, so I used this pale blue paper instead. Close enough, right?? ;) I couldn't resist using the Loads of Fun set for this card because of that sentiment - how appropriate is that?! :) And when I saw Taylor's sketch (TESC98) this week, the rest fell into place! I'm usually very afraid of color challenges because I never seem to have the right colors and feel really restrictive when given specific colors, but these seemed to come together so well. Phew! I needed an easy one this week!

So now it's your turn to create a card using red, pink and aqua. Just leave a link to it using Mr Linky at the bottom of today's TSG's post and one random winner will receive a gift certificate to the TSG store!

Oh my gosh that is just too funny! Like I've said before you do such a beautiful job with the oddest of things. Laundry bottle in this case. How the heck did you get the bottles to line up so perfectly?

Kate said...

Congrats on the new job Sandra - that is AWESOME! Thank you for the lovely eye candy today too. :)

Well congratulations certainly are in order. But then again then cream always rises to the top and good things come to good people. Your laundry bottle card is precious and oh so very appropriate! I particularly like the little shadow in the lower left corner of each bottle of detergent. You never miss a single detail.
