PPA164 & CC1

Ah, it’s Friday---finally!  I spent yesterday chasing after the wee one, swimming in the kiddie pool, and making pickles!  I barely got in enough time to stamp, but I did manage to make one card!  It’s for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge 164:
as well as the new inspiration challenge from Stacey’s Curtain Call:

There was so much to choose from in the inspiration photo, but I stuck to a “natural” nautical theme and I got to use some new diecuts!!!
LeAnne Pugliese PPA164 CC1 Nautical
The sentiment is from a retired SU set called Winds of Grace; the DP is retired from last year.  I hope it’s okay that I used the knot on the paper as my third banner!!!  
This will be a great masculine birthday card and I know just to whom it will go!

This week Cassidy had her first dental appointment!  A wee bit apprehensive at first:
She smiled for the camera:
So far so good…having Lambie is helpful (but the shades didn’t last!):
Not liking the taste of the fluoride:
Happiness is when it’s all over:
But THIS is really what she was looking forward to!!!
Thanks for popping by!
