Challenge # 9 at A Spoon Full of Sugar

Hi Everyone!

I'm sorry I haven't posted all week. It has been a crazy, crazy week for me.
First the card....then I will explain.....

This card is for Challenge #9 at A Spoon Full of Sugar.
From the Blog....
"We have the gorgeous Katharina as our guest designer this week who has created this fab sketch for us, if you haven’t paid her a visit pop over and take a look at her fab blog, and wish her well on her new adventure whiff of joy" If you don't have an oval for this challenge please feel free to use a circle.

There is going to be a beautiful stamp given away this week, so be sure to go and check it out!!

Here is my card... I got this gorgeous image from my friend Debbie....Thanks so much Debbie!!

I made this card in just over an hour....I think it's one of the fastest cards I have ever made. (usually I spend a couple of hours picking out the papers and setting it up) Unfortunately, I didn't have alot of time this week, but still think it turned out ok. I think that the fab. sketch had something to do with it!

If you have any questions about the products I used, be sure to email me.

And now about work. I have been working from 5 am to 3 pm (approx.) daily, and am exausted when I get home....I mean straight to bed with me! And I am not used to standing on my feet...in one place for that many hours, kind of having some trouble with it. Going to the Dr. today, because I think my heel spurs are already back!! Anyways....I have been not loving my job, kind of depressed actually, so I am trying to find out what my options are. I am sad that I even gave up the office in the first place, because that is what I KNOW I love, but I thought that a new challenge would be good for me. However, what good is having a job that pays more, if I don't have any extra time to do my other love....stamping!

I will keep you informed on what happens with my job. I am on holidays for a week (we are going away for part of it), so I am hoping to get a couple of cards done today or tomorrow.

Hope all is well with all of you, and hopefully I will be back later this week!

Trina you card is beautiful. I love the coloring and all the details.
I know what you are talking about your job. I was working in the same company for more than 10 years and I just quit on June 30th.I can't handle the stress not more. I feel strange sometimes because I miss my friends and co-workers, but I feel good that I can stay home for a while. I hope you find a solution about your job and I wish you the best!
Big Hugs,
Lim

Such a beautiful card Trina, just love it, the image is adorable the papers so pretty!
So sorry to hear the job isn't going too well, standing for long periods isn't good for you at all, I would certainly have problems with that too!
