Cards for Card Drive for Kids with Spina Bifida

Hello!  Happy Wednesday!  Always find that the week after a long weekend just flies by! Tonight I am looking forward to my dance class!  :>  Oh and my skor dip, I had cream cheese that was close to expiry so I whipped some up last night and have been enjoying it with apples that are in season right now!  Check out the recipe here, soooo yummy! Although I warn you it's soooo addicting!  And I added more cream cheese as I found it sweet so maybe put less sugar...

I wanted to share with you a card drive that my friend Giovana is doing.  "Card Drive for Kids" with Spina Bifida. October is Spina Bifida Awareness Month  I think it's really great that she is collecting cards for these kids and families and wanted to support her so  I made two similar cards to send.  Please consider making cards for this also for more info please check out her blog here.




I couldn't resit coloring the girl robot pink!  I masked the robots when I stamped the graph background over the robots.  I had fun using up scraps for the banners.  I'll be honest I really like this fun design!  :>

Products used:  Robot Trio, Sending Smiles, Graph Background by Hero Arts, lime twist by My Mind's eye, derwent colored pencils, recollections cardstock.

I wanted to share with you my friends that I quit my job!  I hardly worked but I've hardly worked for almost 4 years at the children's clothing store!  I would say on average a shift a week, every so often during a busy stint maybe 3 or 4 and at times nothing (winter)  I really enjoyed it. I loved my discount! Shopping while I was there!  Chatting with people (I love to socialize!) But there were a lot of negatives like call in shifts that I would need to call in an hour before and see if I am needed, and were talking 2 of those or more a week!  With becoming a real estate agent in the near future I would have needed to quit anyways.  In the end they had changed the job description and the amount of hours needed, and it was too much on a weekly basis for me and my family.  With Ariel being in school all day now I had a really hard time leaving to go to work and the thought of so many more hours I broke down and had a good cry which told me it was time to go.  It's a good break for me to focus on my course, my kids and family before I start my new career!

Well that's it for me!  And don't forget to enter my blog candy you can click here!

I think it's really great of Giovana to have this card drive and I have a pack of cards going to her this week. Love your robot cards Anita! You did the right thing, often when a woman lands up in tears over a job, it's like you said, time to go. I amsure that you are going to be busy enough in your new line of work, so a little break for some additional family time now can only be a good thing! Hugs to you for making that big decision!
