I turned up for my interviewing looking great, I was chatty, full of good ideas and they said wow to my display after 1 and a half hours I left feeling very confident and happy. Yesterday was the longest of days,waiting for a phone call, at nearly 8pm it came," the standard was so high and you where in the top 3 ...but sorry unsuccessful this time". This would have been the perfect job for me, I feel numb , no tears just numb....any ideas ,my cards sell for about £2-£3 pounds each so I'm hardly going to be rich crafting for a living!
I can't stop making Christmas cards,at this rate I'll have mine made by the end of the month. I'm still trying to keep to a traditional/vintage look. No image for this card, very unlike me , but the poinsettia is so striking in it's own right I felt this red and gold foiled sentiment was enough.
The flower is made from a Marianne design die, I've cut red and gold petals , fixed with a large gem brad and added some gold beading from the ribbon box.
The papers are do craft basic, vintage and the lace, nearly at the end of this now, is from hobby craft.

It's raining so heavily outside , another day card making for me and trying not to feel to sorry for myself, I know others have much worse troubles so I should count my blessings. janex
