Still Here!!!

Man it seems like forever since I got to stamp but work has just taken over my life I hate to say!!! We have been doing 5 11 hour days but now they are telling us we will be doing Saturdays and Sundays if need be. We are just not getting all our orders out with less people and no help is insight!!!
But anyway I had to take the day off and had some tests to do so got to make a card tonight!!! So I decided to do the Sugar Bowl Challenge #1 Because I got some Gorjuss stamps from Sugar Nellie and #2 because the very talented Marlene has done a sketch for the challenge. I had such a wonderful time with the sketch and I know I will use it over and over again. Thanks Marlene.
For my card I used SU papers and my gorjuss girl was colored in with my copic's and spica glitter pens. I used the retro flower punches and MS branch punch and the paper flower in the center was from a very dear friend of mine I just love those papers flowers. The challenge also said to add buttons well mine were just from my stash. The wording is unknown.
I do hope everyone is having a great week and I do want to say I am so very sorry for not being able to check your blogs out regular but I do try to when I have some free time from work. Getting up at 3 am and working 11 hours just don't leave much time for fun. But thanks so much for stopping bye and I do hope to visit you all soon.Big Hugs!!!
