I've had a crap week at work. We were called in for a meeting and told that the company isn't doing well financially blah blah and that our department - sales - is over-staffed. So definitely one, possibly more, will be made redundant. So all that starts on Monday. You know, I've been through this a couple of times in my life and it never gets easier.
I went to my Tai Chi class last night (only started last week, so this was my second class) and I was so angry and frustrated with everything going on that I couldn't concentrate. I didn't enjoy the class and came away feeling so irritated. I had to remind myself when I got home to take a step back and BREATHE. What will be, will be. I've had so much happen in my life and I've always coped. I don't want to spend my days being angry or getting bitter like some of the other ladies I work with. I have been using positive affirmations for about a month now, and saying them last night helped me realise that positive thought makes all the difference - new doors and opportunities are opening for me if I only choose to see!
Anyway, enough rambling. On to my card for today. It is my sisters birthday today and this is the card I made for her.

I used the Spellbinders NEstabilities 'Standard Circles Large' and 'Classic Scalloped Circles Large' dies to cut the image and mat it.
