Use those extra bits and bobs!

 Hi there...well the week is flying by as is time.. 7 weeks tomorrow till my son and his partner get married... and the good news that my daughter and her family are getting ready to come and be here for the wedding.  So all good news.

Today's card is the last one from Easter.  And it was made with bits and bobs from the desk.

The flower and leaves were coloured for another card but not used, the centre panel was originally cut with a Master Layout's die but the stitching tore so it got trimmed down and the base was one that was cut a bit small for the card it was for... so with a bit of embossing - using a striped folder twice - once each way, I made the focal background.  Added the Altenew label stamp sentiment. 

I'm feeling a bit more secure at work this week, after having heard that the area I work in will not lose any staff.... not so for my team Lead.  She is having to apply for her job with about 15% of the leads being surplus to requirements.  Although I'm not an affected staff member I will be impacted - come September I most likely will be working with different team members and different Team Lead.  A little unsettling to say the least. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Lovely news that the wedding is so near! The weeks will fly now, Dawn. Sorry to hear about work - any change is unsettling but what a difficult time for your Team Leader. Your card is gorgeous and your flower looks lovely. Take care, Jo x
