Silhouettes and Stitching

Good morning, friends! 10:30am is a MUCH better time to be awake posting on my blog. I am getting so spoiled having dh home to let me sleep in every other day. Too bad he'll be back in school in a few weeks, and I'll be getting up early every day! Oh well, I'll enjoy the sleep until then. The baby is being super cute right now--just looking at me, saying "da-da-da-da" and showing of his little front teeth. Yesterday he sat at the table (in a booster) with us for Sunday dinner at a friend's house. See? He even ate some mashed potatoes and peas, although I think the puppy got some of those as well.


I have two more Dare to be Dirty challenges to share with you. I got TONS of stamping done yesterday because of these challenges! The first one was silhouette stamping, and I can't believe I didn't add any bling. This has to be the simplest card I've made in a LONG time.



This next one was a stitching challenge, and I must say that I really enjoy using my sewing machine on a card! It makes such a fun look! This one has a fun pop of color on the inside, because I used a double sided printed paper with polka dots on one side and bright orange on the other, as my card base!


Check back again tomorrow, as I still have a stockpile of challenges to share with you! Meanwhile, happy stamping!
