Snowflakes...in August?

Yep!  Snowflakes in August...paper ones ;)  I like those because they do not require a shovel..lol!  To make this short and sweet...on with the snow...er, I mean, show ;)

On a side note, I started a new job today.  Awesome people, but I hate the work.  At this rate, my body should feel 80 years old in 14 days.  I had a job where, for 7 years, I got up for every shift happy to go.  Now, well...I guess the party is over :(  I still wish I had my old job back, but with the hour cut backs and a new store owner, that is just not possible.  Here is to new possibilities that may be waiting around the corner...I am going to think this job positive!!!  Hope you all have a fabulous week!

Pryn, I wish you happiness in your new job situation! Sometimes we have to really search for the good, but it is usually just waiting there for us in one form or another--sometimes some pretty unexpected ones! Good luck! :^)
On to your card--I love this CAS Christmas card. Beautiful and so simple--one could make a ton of these to send out in a short amount of time--very smart! :^)
Hugs,
Penny

Best wishes in your new job, Pryn! I'm sorry it doesn't look as good as your old one right now, but hopefully, with time, the nice people will help you get acclimated and you never know what opportunities will be right around the corner. Your CAS Christmas card is gorgeous! Wonderful design! Hugs!

Gorgeous card Pryn!! I love everything about it!!

About your job... I'm sorry to hear about your old job. It really stinks when stuff like that happens. I'm sorry you aren't feeling the new job right now. I'm glad you are thinking job positive. That's the way to think!! I know you can do it. If it is really a crappy job, look for a better one in the meantime while you are there... good luck my sistah!!! Love ya!

Pryn this card is stunning, I am looking for a good design for my Christmas cards but am finding some good inspiration here, LOL I have a new digi stamp I will try and will look for a snowflake stamp as well. Good look in your new job I hope it works out cause there is nothing worse then going to a job you hate!! Been there done that.
