Sorry I have been MIA again. I am just trying to keep up with normal life and sleeping extra with being pregnant and trying not to barf. But I am pleased to announce that I made it to 11 weeks as of today . . . so hopefully morning sickness will be departing soon and I can get back to stamping lots and lots.
It is Week 49 on the Bloggers Challenge Yahoo group and todays challenge, I felt like, was a really easy one -- it was ANIMALS. I decided to make a Riley card (after all, he is a moose). I would have had my cards uploaded earlier today, but I wanted to do some sewing on them and I was helping DH sew last night, and when I let him go on his own, the machine jammed and my needle broke and it was the only one I had. Anyway, so I went into town today to get a new one and then I completed the cards I was working on today. And besides, it is technically still Friday here, so it is all good right???
This card was so simple. I wanted to make a Fathers Day card since I had not made any of those this year yet and it is getting closer and closer to that deadline. The layout is from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge -- I always want to do her sketches and often get too busy or forget. I really liked this one though and had to do it! I hope you like it!

This second card of the day was made for HSC19 in the Hanna Stamps Forum on SCS. The challenge was to have some paper piecing and to have some BLING somewhere on the card. Easy peasy! I used SC 178 as the layout for this one, only I decided to make a longer card -- It measures 4x7 when folded. The color on the dress is sort of wonky, because in reality it matches well with the old olive colored background. My daughter wanted me to color Hanna's hair the same as her hair color -- and so we matched a colored pencil to it and it was funny how close it matched the sugared paper.
Hope you will check back next week starting Monday for some awesome previews of the new Hanna Sets to be released June 6th.
