Congratulations All Around!!!

I thought I would put up a quick post before I go outside and begin my yard work. I find gardening very therapeutic, so it's fun, but the clean up sucks -that's the only part I hate - so I figure if I try and do it on Mother's Day weekend....certain individuals may feel a twinge of guilt and come out and help'll have to revisit to see if it happened!!!

Anyhow, about these cards.
The music Bella card I created for my sister Courtney. I am so proud of her. She is quite a bit younger than myself, but much more mature than I!!
She recently found out that her teaching job at her school was upgraded to a full time position. I am so happy for her. She is a music teacher and is one talented lady. I makes me tear up when I think back to one of her early piano recitals where all the other kids in her grade took up their one piece of sheet music and clunked out their rendition of Mary Had a Little Lamb or Old MacDonald had a Farm, and her comes Miss Courtney, places her 4 or 6 ( I can't remember exactly the number) pieces of sheet music and played The Rose. It was quite comical to see the faces on the other parents!!!! She is extremely talented and I love to watch her play the piano and sing. Anyhow, my chest is bursting with pride, so I better stop before it explodes!! I shot her off this card to say congratulations on getting full time. The music Bella and the music Cuttlebug embossing folder just fit so nicely together. I added a little bling on her necklace with a little rhinestone and used the sakura glitter pen to make the necklace sparkle. I hope she gets the card before she sees this post!!!

Also deserving a big congratulations is Courtney's boyfriend Jay. He is the coolest guy, and I am looking forward to calling him my brother-in-law some day!! (hint hint Mr. Britton!)
Anyhow, Jay has just passed all of his real estate courses and now is in the market to sell houses! I am so proud of him as well. He worked very hard to get this course and I just wanted him to know that we are all in support of his new career.
So if any of you are in the GTA and need a real estate agent!!!
I put together this card to send to him as a congratulations.
When I first saw this wheel I was not too impressed to tell you the truth, but then I saw some very nice samples using it and I just had to have it. I thought it fit in well with the real estate theme and the Cuttlebug numbers embossing folder I thought added a nice touch to the background. I'm sure he is much better with numbers than I am!!!
So to wrap up, I am just so proud of my little sister and her boyfriend and I wanted to share their achievements with you all.
Enjoy your day!
Chow for now,
