Birthday Card & Challenge Entry...

It's been a rough day for me today!  I'm working the 630-330 shift for my co-worker who got married on Saturday and is having her honeymoon this week.  The same one that didn't care for my cake that I made her.  I'm having to wake up at 5am every morning.  You would think that it wouldn't make much of a difference to me since I typically get up at 6am anyway.  I guess it's that extra hour that helps!?  I didn't sleep very well last night and then had a hard time getting up this morning.  It didn't help that it rained today too.  We only have 6 babies right now, so I'm trying to enjoy that as much as possible.  Although we do have one that gets held a lot at home so he's our difficult one and it makes it seem like we have 8.  I'm so glad we have 3 teachers in there now, bc I would probably go insane.  So then when I leave work today my car won't start.  It was just the battery, but it just so happens that my hubby is out of town tonight.  Perfect timing, right?  *rolls eyes*  At least I got some quiet time and craft time!

My niece turned 3 on Saturday!  Bitter sweet for me.  I miss "my" kiddos like crazy.  My nephew is 8 and a crazy lil man and I was with him for the first 2 years of is life.  Then I got married and moved away.  :(  Those were the two best years ever and that lil man kept me sane while my hubby was in bootcamp and he'll probably never even know.  My niece was born while I was living over in Oki.  I got to meet her for the first time when she was 7 months old.  At first she didn't like me much, but, as most babies do, she quickly fell in love with me.  Almost every time I go to visit, it takes her a few minutes to warm up to me.  I love them both like they were my own. 

Anyway....She is really into the Disney princesses right now.  She was Tinkerbell for Halloween, so I decided to make her this card.  I started it on my lunch break and finished it after work...This is also being entered into the CPS Sketch Challenge #219.
