Extra, Extra.....

read all about it over at City Crafter Challenge Blog this week.  The challenge is to use 2 or more pieces of ribbon and 9 or more words....
I went for a steam punk look.... using a Tim Holtz stamp I got 30% off the other weekend.

WIse Men

I stamped onto some Hero Arts Latte card to give the idea of a sepia print.  I cut to size and matted onto mirror card.  The gears panel was made by adding Peelcraft stickers to black card and mounting onto the mirror card.   I gold embossed the sentiment in the corner.

I got this finished off after work today.  We had planning day ~ 9am to 3.30pm.  Full on day of getting ideas of how to position ourselves for some upcoming major restructuring.  Lots of break out groups and brain storming ideas.  By the time it finished, I was ready to come home to relax.  So finished the card and got the veggies ready for the stir-fry we are having for tea tonight.   (well in about 20 mins if I get this finished!)

Thanks for stopping by.  And thanks for all your good wishes regarding my interviews.  One to go.  Yesterday's went okay, just a bit light on my examples I think.  It will be about 2 - 3 weeks before I find out as they are looking for up to 15 staff.  It's a new team starting in my office.

Monday Feature at MyGrafico ~ Whimsy Irish

Today's feature was this amazing set from Cupcake Cutiees

 It is a really cute set.

I chose to make a card using one of the funky birds.

Lucky Irish

I made the background by copying and pasting a number of times the shamrock.  I then distressed the cardstock..  I love using these digital images.  I  took the scalloped circle and added the little funky bird.  I printed him twice and popped him up.   I finished my card off with some twine and a button.

Do pop over to the blog and see what the others have done.   And don't forget there's still time to enter our challenge {flowers}

On the job front... my interview got postponed till tomorrow morning.... one of the panel was sick.  So another night to think about.   Oh well what will be will be.

Thanks for visiting.  I do appreciate all your comments.
