New Job...

 Evening Everyone,

Im sending hugs out to everyone tonight, At least with virtual ones we dont have to social distance!!! 
What a scary time we are in and its set to get worse before it gets better I fear.  

Crafting is a great tonic at times like this and so I am hoping to get lots of blog time in. I dont use social media as it messes with my mental health and in times like this it would do it even more. 
 Onto happier things though. My Jake has a new job. He is meant to start on 1st April but Im not sure if he will be changing that day now. Hes changing department with Arnold Clarke from sales to working in the parts team. Hence the wee boy fixing his car on this card. The hours are much better and its also not as stressful.
Card Recipe
6 x 6 Card
Coloured wit Promarkers.

Thanks for dropping by my wee bit of blogland. I will be popping by your blogs in the morning to catch up on what you have all been up too, tonight, im now off to sort out my new to me stamps I received in the post today. The crafty desk is covered wood mounted stamps!!! 

Love and Sparkles,

Love this, Hazel - such a cute image and your coloring is spot on! I'm sure he will love this cute card! Thanks so much for playing at TSOT!

The perfect card for Jake, Hazel! Best of luck as he joins the new department. In these times, the parts department is likely to be more busy that sales, so I hope he gets to move over. You did a fantastic job coloring your image. It's so cute!!! Thank you for sharing your creative talents with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!!! -Donna
