First Post of 2016

Hi guys,
     I know that not too many people will actually see this post, but it has been so long and so much has been going on in our lives that I really wanted to come onto my blog and put a post with the hopes of getting back to doing this on a regular basis.  I truly miss all my friends in the blog world, and I think it is the perfect time for me to jump back in.  lol
      So, first let me just say that the M&Ms both GRADUATED from High School on Saturday and both their Dad and myself could not be prouder of these two awesome gifts that we have the honor of calling our Children.  :O)
      After their awesome graduation and party with friends and family we have had the rest of this week to spend together as I have unfortunately lost my job and waiting to start a new chapter in my life as a banker.  Yes, I am nervous and excited all at the same time.  I will be going back to work come this Monday on the 13th.  I am very blessed that it didn't take me long to find a new job and I am hoping one that I am truly going to love. (at least I think I will, lol)   It is going to be interesting to start over in a new direction after having been in pharmacy for over 26 years.  Ok, enough of my boring news about my job issues.

      Now, onto today's card.  Of course the kids need to send out a ton of Thank You cards and even though I had them purchase those, (their responsibility now) it put me in the mood to make a few of my own for some very special people that helped me to make their party a great success.

I have to admit that I just love how this card turned out.  I love the stark white with the black and blue.
For me, it turned out just like I pictured it and it just screams fun to me.  lol....

     I am sorry to say that when I made this card I wasn't thinking of putting it on my blog, so I didn't write down any of my info on stamps, washi or card stock that I used.  I will however get back into doing to very soon.  That is my goal as of this morning.  lol.... Wish me luck!
     I hope you are all doing well and having a great start to the very early start of what is soon to be summer.  So far this week and last week we have been in triple digits and it isn't even summer. ugh....
Hugs Lisa G

Hey Lisa, so glad to see you getting back into stamping and blogging! Tell the M&Ms congrats from me, I know they both have big things ahead in their futures! And as someone who has also shifted gears in the job department this past year I can totally understand the nerves and excitement that come along with making the change. I hope you are very happy in your new position. Hugs!
