Saturday Morning

Good Saturday Morning to all. I wake up with a knot in my stomach as this is the last day of working at the lighting store, it is closing tomorrow. I am faced with a job search, finding health benefits, and applying for unemplyment until I get a new job. I know I am not alone and am very fortunate not to be living hand to mouth like so many others. But I am still a little scared, and must keep my chin up and do the footwork and hope that I can find employment during this bad economic time. There, I said it, now I feel a bit better.

I am posting the valentines I made for the Limited Supply challenge at SCS, which was to make a flat and EASILY reproducable valentine. I had so much fun making these using K and Co. Sweet Talk paper and my top note die. The one with the angel is for the sketch challenge. Can you guess that I love the color pink? Thanks for looking and stop by again soon!

Another sketch!

Well I am just loving this sketch that Roxi gave us yesterday, ans I think

this card is SOOOOOOO sweet it makes my teeth hurt! I used the set Calling All Angels, from H and M stamps, and love the tiny scrabble letters from Jolee's. Anyway since I was evacuated out of Michael's yesterday(yes, there was some kind of electrical fire I think) I am going to skate down my driveway to the garage and try again to find the new Martha Stewart Valentine's day punches. Wish me luck!!!

World on a string

*I've got the world on a string

Sitting on a rainbow

Got the string around my

What a world what a lifeOoh I am in love
I've got this song that I sing

I can make the rain go

Anytime I move my finger

Lucky me can't you seeI am in love
Life is a beautiful thing

As long as I've got a hold of that string

I'd be a silly so-and-so

If I should ever let go
I got the world on a string

Sitting on a rainbow

Got the string around my finger

Lucky me can't you seeI am in love*

No I am not in love but I have my ipod on and keep listening to this song over and over agin, sung by the wonderful Celine Dionne, what a set of pipes on her!

Anyway I hope you like this card I made for the sketch challenge over at SCS, I LOVE pink and I LOVE flowers, and spring is one day closer than it was yesterday, so all is well in my little world!!
I am going to skate down my driveway and get in my car and do a few errands, and of course I adore the comments that you leave here at my blog. Hugs, nancyruth

About Me

My photo
Hi everyone! My Name is Nancy Levine, known as NANCYRUTH on SCS. I have began stamping 20 years ago, though I put everything in the attic for about 10 of those during the hectic years of my single motherhood. I went to a stamping up party about 5 years ago and the stamping flame was rekindled and i have stamped almost every day since then. I work full time in a lighting store and enjoy my career in sales which allows me to fund my crafting habits. I am also a beader and spend my free time stamping, swimming and making jewelry! I look forward to charting my creative journey through my new blog. Fast forward.... After 13 months of unemployment due to the economic downturn I completed my Therapeutic Recreation certification and now work in a skilled nursing facility creating and implementing recreational programs for the residents. I also had the priviledge of working at Beadz Boutique in Darien Ct. where I fine tuned many of my beading skills!
