It's been like baby mania around here lately! I am finding that I need baby cards again. I was digging through some old SU! designer paper lately and found these two old favs of mine. The base of both of these cards are the same - the boy card was taken in natural sunlight and the girl card at night under my OTT-lite. I'm working on rearranging some items on my blog. I added some links to blogs I visit regularly. If I visit yours and don't have yours listed, please let me know! It was an oversight and I would be more than happy to link your site to mine!!! I also spend a lot of time reading other types of blogs (gasp!) that are not stamping related. I listed some of those also. Today is the last day of vacation - sniff, sniff.... Thanks for stopping by my blog today!!!

Hey everyone! I'm back!!!! I feel SOOOOOOOO much better since I had a week's vacation from work! I'm sleeping much better again! Thanks for visiting my blog even though I haven't been posting any samples. What a great way to start stamping again - completing Beate's Sketch Challenge! I did a little Internet shopping on my break from posting. I have wanted some Elzybells for a long time...I really like the holiday ones the best, but these little gals caught my eyes. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope everyone is doing well. I'm really looking forward to catching up on my favorite blogs! P.S. I am getting some BLOG CANDY ready! Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Full of Life (SU), Hugs (Elzybells)

Hey blog friends! I was sitting here feeling badly that I haven't updated my blog much in the last two weeks! I'm taking a little break from posting until April. I haven't been feeling very well lately and I think that it is due to my chronic sleep walking! Yes, anyone who has lived with me in my life can attest that I am an avid sleep walker!! I've also been working a lot more than I am accustomed to (yes, I'm spoiled on part-time) and that is likely affecting my sleep too. Sooooo.....I'm trying to simplify my life for a short bit to get my sleep back on track! So, everyone take care and I'll be back soon!

I've said it many times before...I LOVE SKETCHES! I love it when someone else does all the thinking for you! Sorry I didn't post this past week. I worked full-time and I haven't felt very well lately. I'm feeling much better today!
This was the first time I did the faux-criss/cross stitching. I think it adds to the card! I was also glad to get out this stamp set again! I love GARDEN WHIMSEY!!! Do you think we can petition SU! to NOT retire these IN-COLORS??? I can't wait to see what the new ones will be this summer!
Have a great weekend! Thank you for checking out my blog! Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Garden Whimsey
Ink: Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate
Paper: SU Designer Paper, Wild Wasabi, Apricot Appeal
Accessories: Purely Pom Double Stitched Ribbon, Paper Piercer

What a fun little project! I can't wait to make some more of these for my friends.
I ended up with fangs on my person because I stamped the head down too low! LOL!!! Oh well, some days the kids probably think I have fangs! Thanks for looking! :)Julie
UPDATE: I forgot the recipe for this project!!!
Stamps: All in the Family, Family Accessories
I was browsing splitcoaststampers and was inspired to make this card by this card . I really liked the little side panel. What a great day for stamping. I'm taking a break to watch my Hoosiers. They are currently getting their bottoms kicked by Michigan State. Have a wonderful rest of the weekend. I'm just sure Spring will be here soon!!!!!!
Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Friendship Blooms
Paper: Blue Bayou, Chocolate chip, Whisper White
