Just to let you know, my new job is going really well. I am tired beyond belief at the end of each day but happy tired :-)

  5. A wonderful image and creation! Thank you so much for sharing with us here at The Squirrel and The Fox.

  6. Firstly I should like to congratulate you on your new job Sarah, may your happiness continue and the tiredness diminish as you settle into your new challenges. I hope you'll still have time to enjoy your card making. This card is so lovely and I am sure that your brother will be delighted to receive it. Please don't put it in too safe a place that you can't remember where it is come January (that's my trick -) ) You have been very clever in your choice of backing papers - they have the look of men's suit and shirt fabrics which, along with the addittion of the shirt buttons, complement your digi perfectly. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
