OKAY, I ADMIT IT....

this week just totally wiped me out!!! WOW!! I have not been home before 8pm and I am sooooo tired.....but it sure felt good to get to sleep past 430am this morning, lol!!! I have to say, I totally LOVE LOVE LOVE the job, and I am glad I have it, but getting back into the groove is kicking my sizeable behinie, heehee!!! This is the only card I stamped all week....sad, I know!!! But, it is for the Stamp Something challenge and it is one of the big highlights of my week, so I am glad I got it done (and thanks to Denise and Erin for being so flexible with me at this time!!) This week's challenge is to color something - make a black and white card with ONE color - any color you want, but just one!! And, we are sponsored by the fabulous Paper Makeup Stamps who was sweet to send us their fun fairy images to play with!!! I just love this one, she was really fun to color and add some bling to on her wings and hair...I mean, every fairy needs fair dust, right??!! Make sure you go over to the Stamp Something site and check out the rest of the images the DT used this week - they ROCKED the challenge big time!!! And, why not play along with the challenge? You can use any image you want, but the prize is something awesome from Paper Makeup so you really don't want to miss out!! Just make sure you upload your link to the site to get a chance!! Now, I am off to blog hop since I have missed out on sooo much this week - that is one thing I really miss is surfing blogs with my morning coffee....but I may end up going in to work thirty minutes early just so I can - LOL!!! It will give me a great start to my mornings *wink* Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by and all your sweet and encouraging comments about my first workweek - I really appreciate it and they kept me smiling all week long!!!

I've so been there, Alex! Being back to full-time employment will kick your butt for quite awhile. It's quite an adjustment but it does get better! I'm sure you'll miss your stamping time as much as I did/do! Your card is so pretty!

Sometimes I don't know how I am going to fit it all in - the job, the kids, the DH, the dogs, the chores, the stamps, the play time LOL OMG I'm tired just looking at my list - I'm going to pull a Costanza and crawl under my desk for a wee little nappie now....
