TGIF!!!!! What a week I have had.

Monday - Started filling in for someone who was on vaca this week.

Tuesday - Company had a layoff. My boss, who only calls me seldomly, left me a message to call him at an extention at corporate (he doesn't work out of that office). I thought this was it for me. After 29 1/2 years (to the day) I was getting layed off. I started shaking, crying and dialed the #. Needless to say he wasn't thinking and he was just calling me to fill me in on some biz issues. He freaked me out and then I freaked him out (he hates it when I get upset and cry). Anyway, I am still employed. YEAH!!!

Wednesday - In addition to my job, the responsibilities of the person on vaca, I inherited the job of someone who got layed off. Now I am doing 3 full time jobs this week in addition to all the phone calls of people comparing names of the people who got layed off and congrats for still being here.

Thursday - Spent the day trying to catch up from the insanity of Tuesday and Wednesday.

Friday - Thankful I have a job. Trying to regroup. Looking forward to the weekend.

Last night I got to thinking that I haven't done any cards and I really needed a break so I started working on Mary Jo's sketch challenge which I honestly didn't think I would be participating in this week. I like the MFT stamps. I had bought this stamp last year but never used it. It was so much fun playing with a new set.

I hope you like the card and thanks for visiting!

I am SOOO happy for you that the layoff didn't effect you. I am sorry you had to go through that, but on a better note, cute card. It surprises me that you like the MFT stamps. Doesn't seem like a you stamp. Anyways cute card!

That is adorable! I love that set. I've been eyeballing it for a while.

Sounds like you need lots of R&R this weekend! Hang in there.

How cute, that is one of my favorite MFT stamps. You did a great job with the layout. I am glad you were spared in the layoffs, such a scarry time with so many people losing their jobs. Thanks so much for playing along.

I love this card. That bunny is so cute. I wish it was warm enough to work out in the garden! Great job, glad you finally got to use this set.

Great card! Your stamp is so cute. We may be able to get outside in May!

I am so glad that you survived the layoffs! I am still doing extra work for someone who left 3 years ago, oh well! I like being busy!
