Hello Again Bubble! Hello Men...

Monday will be week three at my new job. This is the first time I've had time in my Bubble. I'm going to have to get a rhythm to this new job - one that includes card making time in the Bubble!

New kid on the block learning curves are rough I tell you! I'm not complaining! I think this job will be an awesome fit for me and me for them!

Excited to have time in the Bubble I immediately clicked into Just Us Girls to see what they were up to this week. So excited! Bubble time! Then...the dreaded challenge... "masculine". UGGGGHHHH! I usually fail at manly cards but that is what challenges are all about. Right?! Working outside the comfort zone.

(At least the word of the week wasn't....wait for it.... WEDDING!!!)

So here we go....
