Ahhhhh.......

Monday, Monday, la, la, la-la-la-la-la-la........

Did you have a relaxing weekend? As relaxing as this guy below?  Hope so!

My cousin-in-law QUIT her job and I'm so happy for her! I know some of you might think it's crazy in this economy but from what she's told me, she was OVER worked and UNDER appreciated - so I give her credit to throw in the towel.

I embossed this image with black powder on watercolor paper and used my Distress Markers to color in.  I had to add a There She Goes bee between the sunflowers due to a smudge - but I think it worked out pretty perfectly!

Her last day was Friday and we went out to celebrate!  We had FUN, FUN, F.U.N.!!!

Oh - and because I know she's a blog reader.................

You are MY Wonder Woman Julie!
Enjoy retirement!!!


Have a great day!

Thanks for your visit!

Congrats to your cousin in law! Sometimes the stress just isn't worth it. Adorable card and I would never have known about the bee cause he looks like he belongs there. Actually it looks like he is trying to see if there is room for him in the hammock too!

Good for her! I hope she enjoys every moment of her new-found freedom! Your card is uh-dorable, Maria, and so perfect for early retirement with that relaxing bear. Really love the little bee you added, too, and your coloring with the distress markers is fabulous!

My thinking is pretty much that way too... if one is not happy, it ain't worth it. So I understand what you mean. This card is so cute and what great colouring you do. Love that bee - fits so very well.

I love the card! And the bee is perfect here, great way to cover a smudge. Congrats to your cousin, sometimes the stress just isn't worth the paycheck. A few years ago I was in a similar situation and quitting was the scariest thing I had ever done. I did end up finding a job making a little less, but the lack of stress really made it worth it. I think I saved enough in dr co-pays, migraine meds and advil to make more even.

Love your card - the orange matting and twine are wonderful together! Beautiful coloring and I saw "cheers" for this little guy enjoying all that blue sky!! Fabulous card!

Congrats to your cousin in law too! Sometimes you just do what you gotta do in life! I don't blame her at all. Being over worked and under appreciated is horrible (as I well know) and there's just more to life than that!
