Hi everyone-
Well as you can tell my posts are becoming less and less. 
My "D" day is quickly approaching and I am getting anxious!
I think the whole family is!  Everyone is expressing their thoughts on dates and time that they believe this little guy will arrive.  All I know is ...I am READY!! 

So let's get to why you are really here!!!
Today's challenge at Sweet Stamps of course!!  :) 
This weeks challenge is:

Here is sample card:
Is he just not the cutest bear in the block!!  This is Fishin' Bear.
I colored him with my Copics, but did some fussy paper piecing using MME Indie Chic "Nutmeg" paper collection.

I found it to be very appropriate to make a card for my oldest son, who is 15 y/o.  This card will be given to him by his little brother, who is 2 y/o.  We will write a note of appreciation and love and leave it for him, when the big day comes.  I know he knows we love him, but being the oldest is never easy...Believe me I know!!!  I'm the oldest of 5 girls!!
