Anna Griffin ran off with 7Gypsies!!!

Just kidding! Don't go telling everyone you know!! I just thought I was being oh, so clever because this tulip is an Anna Griffin stamp, and the designer paper is 7Gypsies. I really shouldn't be left unattended! I made this for the Dutch Dare Card Challenge. We were to use buttons and bows, how fun and easy is that?

Well, yesterday's job interviews went well. They offered us the jobs. We will probably accept, but it's not official. I will be so happy to get back to Colorado! The Oklahoma Panhandle is not my kind of place! Guess how hard the wind is blowing today? 50 MILES PER HOUR!!! It's crazy here. One must be of much sturdier stock than I to thrive in this kind of environment. I won't mind if you call me a quitter or a big wimp! Uncle! I say, "Uncle, Oklahoma!" I will happily scurry back home with my tail between my legs. (I usually just stick it down a pant leg. Hardly anyone even knows I have one.)

Finally, guess what came in the mail today??? My blog candy!!! I hope you like it! I'll take pictures and post it tomorrow, God willing and the creek don't rise!

Oh wow, this is gorgeous too. You're just too technical for me :) Love your work!!!!

Good deal on the job too. Yeah!!!! We're in MO, military, and 10 more years to go. I can't wait until he's done and we can move back west. I HATE the tornado and the wind. Just scary!!! Colorado seems nice... or back to Idaho where I grew up. We'll see. Who knows, we might end up in N. Carolina ha ha... (which I've never been)
