Rainy Day Saturday !

WOW have alot to be happy about on this dreary day! I PASSED the CNRN! In the last 6 months I have studied like crazy and finished up both the CCRN (Critical Care RN) and the CNRN (Neuro Critical Care RN). I already had my CMC (Case Management certification). These first two were the hardest tests I have ever taken - EVEN if you passed when you get your score you realize that the questions were so hard that you just scored a passing percentage - meaning that out of 220 questions you probably got half right. Unreal. The good thing - I never have to take these tests again - as long as I keep up with my continuing education hours I will always have these! Thank goodness! Never want this kind of stress again. Now for the fun stuff.
Hope you saw my blog mid-week announcing that I have become part of the new Design Team for For Your Inspiration which Steph has started. We will have two challenges a month and you can create anything your little heart desires which is inspired by the sketch. Please join us - we are looking for new Guest Designers from the participants and can't wait to see how you are inspired! There are some really talented Design Team members that I am anxious to get to know better so check it out. Here's our first inspirational photo and here's the card I created from it. I used Core'dinations Cardstock - a piece of Webster's Pages and a Unity Stamp to make this.

The next card is for the sketch this week over at Unscripted Sketches. I used a Mo Digital image on this. Also please note when you stop by that they are looking for Design Team members so if we have inspired you please enter!
Next is the page I did for last week's color combo over at Color Combo Galore. Loved these colors. For this I used some Core'dinations cardstock (yum stuff!), prima flowers and Jillibean tags together with the adorable subject who is my sister's youngest grand-son, Cason, who she claims is always happy - judging by this I have to agree. I have this week's page done just can't get a picture until this rain lets up and I can see a little sunshine.

Then I have a card for you from Designed 2 Delight using this week's freebie. I used some Basic Grey papers for this one and an American Craft's rub-on. While you are there come by the Designer's blog, Card- Ideas and check out the weekly challenge there as well.
Thanks again for stopping by - hope to have lots more tomorrow! Have a wonderful weekend!
