Baby Mania!!!

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!!!

Insomniac in the House!

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!

Beate's Weekend Sketch

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

My Family

What a fun little project! I can't wait to make some more of these for my friends.

UPDATE: I forgot the recipe for this project!!!
