One-Layer Wednesday #65

At the office: Out of my 8-hour workday, I was in meetings for 4 of them. At least they kept me busy and the day absolutely FLEW by. I actually facilitated one of the meetings (a second non-senior staff meeting...the first one was back in July), and I hope to take a facilitation class in the next fiscal year to improve on those skills. I appreciated that people actively participated and had good ideas about what to put in their performance plans for this year.

After that meeting, I had my weekly 1-1 chat with my boss, and the topic of today's chat was my performance plan, as the final document is due at the end of the month. I told her that I had seen the position description the higher level position that they were going to be posting soon.

me: "I don't want you to think that my applying for the other position means that I don't like what I'm doing now."
boss: "Oh, I don't have a problem with you applying for the new position (the new position would report to my boss too). I'd be upset if you decided you wanted another boss!"

It's good to know that she values me as her employee. At least that's how I read what she said. ;)

Nails: Time to try another image on my new Konad disk. I was going for a Gryffindor theme with the maroon and gold, but I'm not sure that the yellow came through as strong as I would have liked. Red: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Cinna-Snap. Yellow: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Lightening. Konad plate #57.

Card: Here's my take on One-Layer Challenge #65: Make a one-layer card using the sentiment as the main focus (or that shares the focus with image). I picked out a large sentiment stamp that I haven't used in a very long time, probably before I even started this blog. The image didn't stamp as cleanly as I would have liked, but the help of a black marker, I was able to fill in the blanks. I wanted to also use the martini glass that I bought a while back, but hadn't used yet. Hello, girly drinks. I felt like the upper third of the card need something, so I added the squiggly line and some heart "lights" and I felt like I created a party scene.

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Blackbird, Charcoal, Maroon, Rose Coral, Blackberry
Stamp: Studio G (martini glass), American Crafts- Dear Lizzy- Warbler (heart, squiggly line), Fiskars- Friendship Garden (border), Anita's/Sugarloaf, Inc. (sentiment)
