Thinking of You!

Good Morning Everyone, and how are you all today.  I hope your weather is Spring like, not like ours this morning, very squally indeed, and It's the sort of dull rainy day that you should be indoors crafting, well I would if I didn't have to go back to work, all good things have come to an end, but I have enjoyed my days off.

I am sad in a selfish way though, my friend at work who supported me all last year when I was going through tough times, is leaving our organisation.  I will miss her, but the new job is a new challenge for her and her first managerial role, and of course she is young with loads of time to make a career for herself, she has also just got her degree, so she has worked hard.  There is nowhere to go in our organisation, that's why we are all so jaded, so really I am thrilled she is moving out and upwards, and hopefully we will stay in touch.

Anyhow here is a little card I made for a client at work to send to our manager who is still recovering from her cancer surgery;
I had this little image and just cut it out and put him on Centura Pearl White Gold Card.
Embossed with a floral folder from Die'sire Embossialicious, edged with DI in Spun Sugar
Sentiment I can't remember where from
SB Asters made from tissue paper, thanks to Hazel for her inspiration on making these.
Buttons and gems from my box.
I've kept it fairly simple for him and shouldn't cost the earth to post.

Well folks that's me for now, I hope to get around to your blogs later when I get home, but I'm working late so I'll see what energy I have left, enjoy your day whatever you're doing

Hi Kate, it's a shame when you lose a good friend at work but onwards and upwards! I'm sure you'll keep in touch, always nice to meet up for lunch and a natter.
Love your card for your other friend who I hope is on the mend as well as can be expected. Great embossing and love the wee dog.

Have a super Easter weekend, hugs and happy crafting,

Erika. x

Good morning Kate, I must have missed this one when you posted it. Such a sweet image just love it, and glad you enjoy making the asters out if tissue, I am going to have a go at making them from crepe paper next. Sorry your friend is leaving, I think she will stay in touch as she did when you were off last year. As you say she is young and need to stretch her wings as they say. Don't work to hard. Hazel xx
