Pinque Peacock News for Friends With Flair!
It's been an interesting week, but at least I have some great news to share. My first week of vacation! Monday, I spent the day at work, taking a CPR course. Not much of a vacation yet there. Tuesday, 5am, I woke to a sick dog. Sammy vomited ALL day Tuesday. The only unusual thing we know of that he ate was one small Andes mint, and I got most of it out of his mouth! Late Tuesday we took him to the vet and he was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Not such a good second day of vacation. Wed., day 3, Sammy seemed slightly better, so my husband and I traveled to the "big city" to do a little shopping and lunch. Four hours later, when we returned home, we were faced with a totally vomit-filled kitchen, hallway, and bathroom from one end to the other. Sammy had re-lapsed. He was hospitalized from Wednesday afternoon until late Thursday. When we were bringing him home, we noticed he was limping on his left front leg. So, Friday, day 5, we took him back to the vet to see what happened to his leg. They aren't admitting to anything, but didn't charge us for the visit and did give us some pain pills for the injury. If this is vacation, I think I'd rather be at work!! Today, my husband prepared the decks for staining, and tomorrow I'm going to spend the day staining decks. How traumatic can that be?
Now, for my much more exciting news!!!When I started on the 3 Girl JAM design team last February, I became acquainted with Jessica Shelton-Buffa, a fellow designer. I soon fell in love with her Pinque Peacock products AND Jess herself. Jess is all heart and energy -- what's NOT to love? So, earlier this summer, when Pinque Peacock put out a design team call, I decided to apply. Today is the day I get to make it public that I'm one of the newest Pinque Peacocks! Yea! Can't wait to get my hands on those products and start designing! In honor of the occasion, I created a card using some Pinque Peacock stickpins that I just "happened" to have!
I used a Pinque Peacock Angel Stick Pin on this card. There's also a Unity Stamp set, "Moments in Bloom", Sweet Stamps "Fanciful Butterflies" set, 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon, My Mind's Eye 6x6 Indie Chic "Saffron" papers, and a crystal flourish from Close To My Heart. I used a water pen and ink on each butterfly to get the realistic effect.
There's an announcement today on the Pinque Peacock blog about all the new Pinquettes.
My husband and I both have next week off, too. We're praying for a more relaxing, enjoyable week! Maybe I'll have some time to get crafty with my Pinque Peacock pretties!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp -- anything goes
Sister Act Card Challenge -- anything goes
