MFT Sketch #15

I really liked the My Favorite Things Sketch again last week, so I decided to play along. I cut the grass with my Cricut Expression, but the clouds were cut with the MFT cloud die. The sentiment is Stampin Up!. I colored the sky with chalks and a stencil. The paper is Cosmo Cricket. The image is digital from Heather Ellis. I know MFT sells the 'stamped version', but I always prefer to work with digital images, so I purchase them directly from her. They are much cheaper that way too!

Well on a personal note, I've had one of the most difficult days at work than I had in a long time. I think everyone is just cranky because even though it's April 20th, we are expecting yet another Winter Snow Storm. I had one upset customer after another, which finally culminated in the 'customer of all customers' who felt it necessary to verbally heap upon me all my character flaws and 'lack of professionalism' especially for a woman 'my age'. I don't know what bothered me more, her long list of my character flaws, or the reference to my age. I think driving home from work I must have looked at myself in the rear-view mirror 5 times to see 'how old I really looked'. Funny, until today I thought I looked pretty good; especially since I just worked my butt off to lose 20 lbs. Now I feel old, ugly, and worthless. It's amazing how words hurt.

I hope you all had a better day than I did! Amy


  1. Oh, how cute! I love the little scene you created!
