Wow! I've been a terrible blogger. I've had an awful week with major caregiver issues concerning my Dad causing an insane amount of stress for my family - and several days off of work for me to deal with helping my Mom take him to doctor's appointments, go to Care Plan meetings, etc. I'll spare you all the details, but it's so frustrating to feel like you finally have everything in place and things are going to work out and then BAM! everything feels like it's crumbling apart again. On top of all of this, I have been sick for a few weeks now with what started out as just a little cold that turned into a full-blown major sinus infection earlier this week along with chest congestion and a gnarly case of laryngitis that has left me with almost no voice at all (I'm sure Joel is secretly loving that! ha!) and to top it all off the worst case of PINK EYE, of all things, I've ever seen! What the eff? (pardon my fake bad language, but it's just been one of those weeks! LOL). I'm sure all of the stress didn't help.
So anyway, I'm behind on EVERYTHING - I haven't been able to stamp or craft all week and I didn't think I was going to get to play along with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge this week. But I was in serious need of a little Stamp Therapy this afternoon and even though my MoJo seems to be hiding wherever my immune system ran off to, I did manage to whip something up with this week's sketch:
I used the super adorable Rock-a-Bye set from Clear and Simple Stamps to create this little 3.5 x 5 inch baby card - the perfect size to slip a little gift card into or to attach to the front of a small baby shower gift!
