Finally a New Project!!

Okay, so I feel as if I have been out of things for a really long time....well I have.  I have returned to work, so I now don't have up to 3 hrs a day (during naps)to play around on the computer and blogging and in my craft room!!  ahhh!!  now I spend 8hrs (minimal) at work!!  ahh!!  ha ha ha...I have even returned to work fulltime, which is unusual for nurses I guess, everyone is pretty shocked anyway!! 
I do love my dayhome provider, and so does my daughter, so it isn't so bad...I guess.  I do feel as though I miss out on a lot, and sometimes I feel a bit neglectful becuase she spends more time with dayhome provider then with my during the makes me sad anyways...but I definately needed the socialization of my work for me.  I do love my work also, so that helps ease the pain of beign back and away from my daughter so much!  Anyways, onto my project for today.  I made a new baby card for my friend who just had a little boy in the end of February.  yay, if it wasn't obvious by the colours of the card.  So my card is below:
Recipe: Simply charmed Cricut Cartridge, Accents Essentials Cricut Cartridge, Recollections cardstock, threading water punch, waterfall stickles, misc ribbon and cardstock, scrappy moms sweet saying stamp set.
I really wanted to have a face on the baby, but for some wierd reason still waiting on my peachy keen stamps from their super bowl sale!! I knew I would ruin it if I tried to draw a face on after the fact, and by the time that I even noticed (which was after I photographed it) everything was all together, I wasn't doing everything all over again for a face!!  ha ha ha...ahh...I'm going crazy, literally, I can't do any preojects because I am still waiting for those stamps.  I want to use them for like everything!!!  (I of course will have to tell my hubby I won them when they do come, he he he!!!)
Anyways, hope you liked my card, it is safely in someone elses home right now!  yay!  I also thought you might like to know there is an awesome hop going on right now:
There are over 30 awesome blogs involved in the hop with some awesome prizes!!  hope you all have fun and enjoy!!  Thanks for joinging me and I hope to see you soon!! 
OH YEAH!!!  Some exciting news for me....I will soon be making my first appearance in a blog hop!!  yay!!  I will be having some awesome blog candy for the hop also!!  Can't wait to see you all then...What hop you are asking...well....It is the St Paddy's day Blog Hop and will be taking place on March 17th at 11:30pm - March 19th at midnight!!
