One-Layer Wednesday #69

Monday night spin class story: I forgot to tell this story from Monday's spin class. One of the ladies that took the bike two seats away from me was singgging during class. I found this amusing. The music was blasting, so you couldn't hear her that much. At the end of class, the guy that had the bike in front of her turned around and asked "So, were you the one that was singing?" She smiled and looked maybe embarrassed..."What? Did I motivate you?" I had to laugh on the inside. I think he, too, was amused with her singing.

At the office: We had the first interview today for a new position at work. I appreciated that she did her research on the organization before coming in and seemed personable. While I liked her, I dunno if I really like the idea of having a new office roommate. I've had 2 already and was totally fine with them, but now I've gotten used to having the space to myself. Do I really gotta share?

Card: The One-Layer Wednesday challenge this week (#69) focused on stripes. I did a lot of masking in this card to a) create the label shape and b) the stripes. Post-It notes were my friend in this project. I added the gems as a finishing touch to make sure that the butterflies didn't get lost in the stripes.

Great job on the challenge and thanks for playing along with OLW69!

Now, I think you might be one of the people to whom I owe stamps.

I just have to find my paper with all the info on it an they will (finally!) be off to you.
