This card is my take on SSS67, this week’s sketch on The Sweet Stop blog. It also meets the criteria for Challenge #29 on the Raise the Bar blog. “Sticky Situation” is the theme, which means you are supposed to use a sticker on your card.
I used two stickers on my card. The focal point image and border are Penny Black stickers that have been in my stash forever. It was nice to have a reason to use them. It took me a while to choose papers to use with the sticker. Finally, I decided on Lilac Mist and Spring Iris, which coordinate with the spots on the sticker. Both the image and the sentiment were attached to the card with foam tape.

A Slice of Life: Today was one of church (with Mom) and chores (all by my lonesome). Tomorrow, it’s back to work. It’s hard to believe it is August already. Before we know it, school will be starting. And the baby that is due in December … it won’t be long. Dustin and Miranda had a doctor’s appointment last week. He called the next night and said that it was all finally becoming real to him – to the point he’d had a hard time getting to sleep the night before after their appointment. I have never seen a father-to-be quite as excited as this one is. I love it and know he is going to be a fantastic daddy.
I hope you had a wonderful Sunday, too, and that the week ahead brings you nothing but good things. Take care, friends, and thanks for stopping by.
