Hey everyone, happy Saturday! Hope things are going well where you are, here, it’s beginning to feel like summer. Here we go….this week it will be over 100 every day. Yuck! On the bright side? This is my last week as a government employee. Thursday, June 30 is my last working day, I am officially retiring! Didn’t think this day would ever get here! The best part? I’m going to be working my Stampin’ Up! business full time. How fun is that??? So that means I’ll be posting more often, and better yet? This little blog is getting a face lift. This is going to be a whole different place starting August 1st. So be sure to check back then.

So the card I’m sharing today is one from my Catalog Launch Party. Somehow I didn’t post on this one, oops. Remember all the pink flamingo decorations? Well, this stamp set was the inspiration for that. When I first saw this set I thought “meh, it’s ok.” Then I started seeing all the cute samples out there and knew I had to have it.

I hope you have a great weekend and week ahead. I probably won’t be posting next week as it’s going to be busy wrapping up my 24 year career with the state. I’m super excited, yet there’s this little part of me asking myself what the heck I’m thinking!! lol I am so ready for this change and really looking forward to all that it has to offer. Have a good one!
