Decoupaged Cutie

Good afternoon everyone.
We have such deep snow.  Pics are below!

I had my interview today for the Midday Supervisor post.  It seemed to go OK and it's a good job I researched the post on the internet as I had studied up on some of the questions I would be asked.  Now all I have to do is just wait and see if I get offered it.  Would be really nice to.

I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!  Just as I was typing this post I got a phone call telling me the wonderful news!!!  WOW  - I was interviewed at 12pm and contacted at 2.12pm!!

I have a card to share....

Some of you may recognised the image and papers as they were part of a gorgeous free gift from Papercraft Inspirations magazine this month.  It is a pad filled with cute images to decoupage and gorgeous papers.  I love it and can't wait to do more.  I hadn't done decoupage for a long time so was nice to revisit this.  I don't know if you can see the layers in the pics.  The flowers are new and from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Now onto my snowy pics...

It all looks very Christmassy :)

I love your layering and the image is just too cute. I love the pictures outside your window....I don't live where there's snow so it's still 'pretty' in my eyes. Hahaha, but not for those who have to live in it!
