Bella Challenges and frustration!!!

I wanted to post a couple cards I got done. I have been sick most of the week and a fever of close to 105 most of yesterday and still between 101-103 today. It sucks though because my work is really not the most understanding. I thought I might be able to go in a little this afternoon because I always feel guilty phoning in, but the Dr. nixed that idea this morning. My BF thought I was going to try work and called there. Of course my co-worker answered and he asked if I was there and she said no. He said I must have been told to stay home then because I was still sick and she made it seem to him like I was lying about being sick at all. I just hate that. I also have 5 kids - 4 that I share my sick time with and 15 days through the year sometimes isn't enough. So I am out of paid leave, so as if I would be home sick not getting paid if I had any other choice....

Sorry! Now I am venting...

This card is for the bella color challenge (73). It was to use red as a focal on the card. I forgot to do the distressing part of it but still am happy with it and planning to send it to my cyber friend Laura who had surgery this week...


This one is for the sketch challenge (73) in the bella forums. I just love Stamping Bella stamps!



You can play along with the bella challenges here.

As always thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think!

Oh, Angie..I am so sorry you have been so sick and sad to that your job isn't more accomadating! That would be frustrating so don't feel bad at all about venting :o((( Your cards are perfect, lovely designs overall. Stamping is theraputic for frustration but hard to get up the energy when you are sick. 105ยบ is a high fever, Yikes! Get better soon!

This is exactly what I was going through a couple of weeks ago- my daughter's got up to 105 (and she's only 2!!). My son's was 103 for days... and as I continually told people- adults should NOT have fevers :-). He and I were sick at the same time!! I do hope you get better very quickly!!

Love the cards!
