Life Happens

I hope everyone is having a great week. Unfortunately it definitely hasn't been the greatest week for me. Actually it has been a really stressful week. I apologize to all of you yet again for not getting around to visit your blogs this week. Sadly, I will probably need to just clear out my google reader as I currently have over 400 unread posts in there. I promise to try and stop by your blogs soon! I should have a little more time to try and keep up with things, because starting next week I will once again be a full time stay at home mom. Sometimes life doesn't exactly turn out exactly the way you expect and you have to make decisions that are best for you instead of worrying about everyone else. Yesterday I resigned from my job. It just was not the right fit for me at this point in my life. I am now going to spend the rest of the summer enjoying my precious time with the kids before Annabelle heads off to kindergarten in the fall. No more 4 am wake up calls for me! YAY!!!
Because of all of the chaos in my life this past week I haven't had any stamping time. Luckily I still have a few stash cards to share!
Today I thought I would share another card that I made with the DRS Designs Dustin Pike images. I just LOVE these stamps. They are adorable and a dream to color!
Thanks for stopping by today. Just wanted to remind everyone that Saturday is the June Firecracker Designs blog hop. You won't want to miss it!
Have a great day!

I'm sorry your job wasn't as good a fit as you'd like. But I'm sure your kids will be DELIGHTED that you're staying home full time! =D

Love your card, Heather! Dustin does some amazing artwork, and I'm lovin' the new images he's been coming out with!

Heather -- {{{HUGS}}} just because I think you can use one...I'm glad you were able to make the decision on your terms...and that you'll get to enjoy the kiddos this summer. Loving your new design and banner too -- way to go on your first publication and finally I LOVE THIS CARD. DP is one of my favorite 'peeps' ;). (how was that for a great run-on sentence ;) )
