Well, I had a very pleasant surprise this week: Sharon Johnson of the fabulous "No Time to Stamp" blog, and her equally fabulous "Stamp Simply" card challenge, invited me to Guest Design for the Challenge for the month of February! After I finished the Dance of Joy and climbed off my desk, I hurriedly agreed ... lest Sharon have a chance to change her mind!
So, today's card was created with this week's Stamp Simply Challenge, #125, in mind: to create a project for baby! A shower card, a new baby Congrats, an altered item, something for baby's room, a 1st birthday card ... ANYTHING goes -- as long as it's for BABY. For all the challenging deets, clicky HERE to visit Sharon's blog.
My card couldn't be any simpler ... well, it could: but only if someone else made it for me! I ran some Very Vanilla card stock through my die-cut machine in the "Argyle" embossing folder, double-matted it, then paper-pieced the little dress. I added a tiny silver bow, some luscious satin ribbon, a cute l'il baby carriage charm, and double matted my sentiment. Simply ... simple!

Then, something interesting:
"So, did you two know that more Americans can name the Three Stooges than the three branches of government?" Jill asked.
"Well, that's because the Three Stooges are more likely to get something done." Sheila replied.
And that would be Larry, Moe, and Curly. And, the Judicial, the Legislative, and ...
