Paper Players 62

Happy Sunday to everyone! I totally apologize for the lateness of this post; we just got back from vacation and I could have sworn that I set this up for pre-posting! Oh well! What with the wild weather we had last week, who knows where it went!

Lesley is our Paper Players hostess today and she has chosen "Birthdays" as her theme! We can always use birthday cards, can't we?

I chose to make a belated birthday card using Easy Events and some assorted polka dot papers in Marina Mist and from Nursery Nest:

I did some paper piecing with another piece of Certainly Celery polka-dotted paper, also from Nursery Nest and used Blushing Bride for the cardstock. This versatile set makes a card in no time flat! I hope you'll pop on over to the Paper Players and play along with us this week!

No pix of the baby, but I would ask for prayers as the poor little thing got very sick over the weekend--she had thrush last week, now an ear infection, pink eye and the beginnings of pneumonia! Scary stuff! Hopefully she'll be on the mend and I can have some pictures of her this week! Thanks so much, and thanks for visiting!
