Merry Christmas

Sunday, August 23, 2009

Reynna wanted me to stamp with her and I decided I could use a small break from studying so this card was born.

I started with the sketch from Unscripted Sketches. I also knew that I wanted to play in Sparkle's weekly Christmas card challenge. I haven't gotten to play the past couple of weeks and want to keep building my Christmas card stash. This card also fits the bill for Creative Belli for water based markers, ABC Challenge for buttons, and Creative Inspirations for spots, dots, and circles. Woo Hoo. 5 challenges.


***Supplies***
Patterend Paper: CTMH Jingle
Stamps: CTMH No Peeking, Seasonal Thoughts
Other: Nesties, CTMH white waxy flax, PTI buttons

Well, tomorrow is the big day. I take my exam in the morning and then have the rest of the afternoon off for the day. My work pays us for the days we sit for the exam and then doesn't require us to come back, which is so nice because I am definitely fried after sitting for a few hours taking this brutal exam.

I've studied hard the past few weeks. The section I am taking tomorrow focuses a lot on tax. I'm so sick of taxes. Anyway, I'd love any happy vibes and prayers you wanted to send. If I can pass this part, (remember that last time I got a 74 and a 75 is needed to pass), I will only have 1 section left until I get my CPA license. YEAH! Well, I must get back to my studying. I hope you have a great day and thanks for the visit.

Think positive thoughts. All that studying is worth something. And,
I will be praying for you. I am an accountant, but never went for my CPA. That is a big step. Congratulations on all your hard work. In the end it will all be worth it.
