Hi - its Monday... Stampavie DT Challenge time

I am running so late - I over slept... imagine that :0) First I know many will want to know how my orphan baby Sergio is doing.. the answer is GREAT! He is eating 2 cups of formula from a little pail every 2.5-3 hours... every last drop. He has started to fill out and looks wonderful. He has started running and playing with his brother and sister. It looks like the group is letting him hang with them and be a part of the herd. So other than sleep deprived.. I am thrilled and I do think he is going to be one strong little boy... and already I can say... I don't think this one is going anywhere... I am ( and I think Hubby is too) very attached to my baby.

Now my card - I am so late, I have to pick my Mom up in just a little bit to take her to have a root canal done.. So quickly - The info about the challenge is on the Stampavie DT Blog - again there is a GREAT PRIZE... so please play with us. It is a color challenge RED-YELLOW-ORANGE ... and then any Stampavie image... that is it. It runs until until September 6th 12:00 am (CEST).

I used one of the new Tina Wenke images... Mouse on Orange Daisy - so I of course colored the daisy orange :0)

For my card - quick here.. white card stock, scrap yellow and white gingham, and the flowers is a piece of Fabric! A stack from a quilt store.. gorgeous patterns and this one was perfect for the challenge - I sewed all together with yellow and orange multi thread.

I used my Nesties label die to cut out the image, then hand cut the two mats.. ran Papertrey Ink Dotted satin ribbon thru and then added the sentiment and Heidi Swapp chipboard Heart.

Please visit the Stampavie DT Blog to see the other cards and join in on our fun!

Sorry so quick... ACK... only 30 minutes til I need to leave and I am still in my PJ's!!!

HUGS and-

Hi Michelle
So glad that Sergio is doing brilliantly well - I too, would be reluctant to let him go after everything you have been through.
Get some sleep - feeding every 3 hours is very tiring!!

I am so glad to hear Sergio is doing well and that the group are including him so he doesn't feel too lonely without a full time Mom. Funny how life changes in a flash. I know you never expected you would be adopting a baby to have to do the day and night thing with. On the bright side at least there aren't any diapers. Hugs Ann

Linda said...

I'm sooo glad your baby is doing well! Do you know what happened to Cheyenne?

Your card is really pretty. And I totally understand about you oversleeping... actually you are "under-slept"! Take care of yourself!

Hugs, Linda
