CASology # 4 Cue word Bird

DSCF0981 Not much time for crafting this week as I am juggling two jobs but I have managed to create a card for this weeks CASology challenge which is using the cue word BIRD.  Now you didn't have to use a bird image but could intepret the word however you wanted.  When I thought of bird I thought of flying and knew that I had a sentiment and an image that would incorporate that thought.  The stamps are from Queen Kat Designs.  Initially I stamped up an SU scalloped frame which is now retired using SU's Ruby Red ink pad and second stamped this onto my card.  I then inked up the image and senitment and added them to the frame.  Finally from my stash I added a gold heart charm (the stamped image has a key hanging from the critters neck).

I've worked two evenings with my new job and all went well, will be working there again on Saturday.  A couple more weeks training and then I will be flying solo in that job if I feel comfortable enough doing the job.  Initial thoughs are that I think this was the right move.  Yesterday, today and Sunday are my last days in my current job which I will miss, especially the people I've been working with but I certainly won't miss the early mornings.

I have managed to watch some of the Olympics during the week and have enjoyed what I have seen.  Pity there have been a few issues especially with the disqualification of the ladies in the badminton but on the whole I think it's going pretty well.

I will post some photos tomorrow of last weekends outing with Logan, tried doing it with this post but it wouldn't let me upload them all at once this morning!
