Mojo monday challenge no 111 and some exciting news...

Boy, do I have some exciting news today.... I've got myself a JOB!! Woohooo!! Nothing's on paper yet, but the headmaster at Maja's school promised me a job, starting January. I'll contact him a bit closer to Christmas and work out all the details, but he has promised me work 3 days a week. I'm sooo excited! On the other hand, that means I can no longer spend my whole days with Susie... I can't remember if I already mentioned that she has got a place in a new built nursery (it's not quite finished yet...), anyway... she is starting nursery at the end of this month (if the nursery is finished by then...lol...) or beginning of December. So this is going to be a big change for both her and me... and for the rest of the family too, of course, not having me at home all the time....

Well, over to my card. This card was made using sketch 111 from the Mojo Monday sketch blog. You're probably bored by the stamp I've used by now.... I know... It just happens to be my favourite at the moment...Image is coloured with water colour pencils, and I've matted the image on some soft pink pearlescent paper... the off white strip to the right is also same type of paper. I think you can see the shimmer in those pearlescent papers a bit better on this pic...
It's really hard to photograph my cards at this time of year... not much daylight, and lamp light gives the photos the wrong colours... ach well, you get the idea....

YOHOO..Gratulerer med jobb og barnehageplass og store forandringer. Dette blir spennende, nå er det mange år siden du jobbet i Norge.
Tenker det blir deilig også, med litt forandring i hverdagen.
Tror nok Susie kommer til å trives med å leke med andre barn.
Håper du blir bedt i bryllup snart, du har jo så mange flotte bryllupskort.

These really are big changes. But if Suzie gets accustomed to her new school.. and thinks she is a "big girl".. she will do fine. And working three days a week during school hours is a good thing!
And I really LOVE that card.
