Sunshine Days

Evening peeps

I'm not sure how much longer I can keep up the pace at work.  Every shift is 9 hours of running around on my feet with no break, I don't even get a chance to sit down or eat, at nearly 50 years of age, it's getting to much.

Anyway, I have sat down this evening and made a summer themed card.  The digital stamp I have used is called Summer Holidays from The Paper Shelter and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.

Other materials used are:

White card stock
Patterned paper
Crealies Crea-Nest-Lies XXL Stitched Ovals die set
Crealies Set Of 3 Flowers No. 23 die set
Espresso ink pad
Memento Bahama Blue ink pad
Tim Holtz Pickled Raspberry Distress ink pad
Stitched ribbon
Nuvo Mustard crystal drops

    P.S I think is time to have a break and sit down and look for another job. You're entitled to a break during your shift and on your feet all day doesn't help. All the very best.
