TGF's Farm Fresh Friday -- Pearls

Hello!  It's time for another Farm Fresh Friday!  Jas is challenging us to use pearls on our creations! 

I went really CAS on this card.  I heat embossed the snowflakes from TGF's Sparkling Season using a glittery red and added some pearls in the centers.  The red really sparkles in person but not so much here in the photo.  I love the look of red on kraft and next week I'll have more Xmas cards to share that I made on kraft cardstock.  But I did feel like I was cheating a bit since it's so CAS.  I even tried to see if some twine would look good on it somewhere but in the end I left it alone.

So lately I've been thinking what I should do when I decide to go back to work.  Do I go back to being a speech therapist or should I just work in a less stressful field.  I'm sure all jobs are stressful in their own ways no matter what it is.  Plus I need a part time job cause I still need to go pick up the kids from school.  So something flexible would be nice.  Sigh ... does a job like that exist?  I think I still have a couple more years before I think I need to work.  Though I'd appreciate some kind of sign so I know which direction to take.

Anyway, hopefully you'll play along with our pearl challenge and please check out the rest of the DT's creations!

Thanks for reading!

I'm glad you didn't add the twine...this CAS card is perfect the way it is!

A speech therapist?! My youngest is dyspraxic and we took him to private lessons for 10 years. I would have loved to have had someone come to my home for lessons instead of driving him...it just wasn't an available option. Good luck with your decision!

:Dxx

It looks nice like this! I think I'm not much of an embellisher in the first place anyhow. Maybe u can find a job share. It would be nice if u could get a crafty job. Then hopefully it would be fun too. Or does it become un-fun once it's a job?

Love the simplicity of it!

Hmm, would you be able to pick up with just a one patient load at first? Or work in retail or art/scrapbooking store?

Love it!! CAS with a touch of sparkle and shine. :)
Hm... You're right any job can be stressfull if you let it. But if you have a few more years to plan what do you see yourself really having fun or enjoying that you think hey that's a pretty cool job?
