CC&S #244

Hello! I'm back with a fun card to share for this week's sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. I opted to flip the sketch , I need to replenish my birthday card supply. I a birthday stamp from SSS and my zig markers to watercolor the balloons.I know this isn't my usual work. I haven't been crafting much recently because I was really feeling bad about my job change. I left a job I had enjoyed (I felt I had to because of some things going on in the office) , took a new job closer to home , only to find out they told me things that were not true to get me to come there and they had a scary turn over, so I was very upset by all of this. I have worked in this field over 25 years and felt very lost. I have since quit the new job, YEAH! I went back to the practice I used to work for , but in a different office closer to home. I work with different doctors, different co-workers and a different boss. It is so much better, but I'm not myself yet. Job stress isn't for the faint of heart. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Love how you mirrored the sketch to use balloons, what a FAB idea. Beautifully CAS and lovely to see your watercolours again :)
    Sorry to hear you've had so much job stress, I hope you feel settled again soon.
    Hugs Bev x

    1. Thanks! The change in offices has been a good thing.

  2. Great use of the sketch I love how you have flipped it! Good luck with the work stuff we went through something similar a few years back and it was a very stressful time. Hope things start to feel more "normal" for you soon x

  3. Oh, Samantha - I'm glad the jobs sorted themselves out! I can't imagine being in that position. {{hugs}} Hopefully you'll feel settled in soon!

    Your card is wonderful! Love the beautiful watercolor background around the balloons - and what an awesome take on the sketch!

  4. I am sorry about your job situation, but glad you didn't sit in the mess too long without sorting things out for yourself. Hope crafting helps bring back some balance in your life. Your card is gorgeous! I was thinking about you this morning as I pulled out the watercolors for my card this week. (Not my usual medium - and your watercolor cards are always beautiful!) Love how you flipped the sketch and that birthday font is fabulous!
