Oh BABY!

It's all about babies today! *Mom, if you're reading this, someday!!!!!!!!!!!!* ;)
If you are just happening upon my blog and are wondering what all the hub-bub is about, start at Angela's blog and work your way through the DT blogs for your chance at some blog candy!
Unity has so many sweet baby sets to choose from but I stuck with an old favorite, Wild and Crazy Bunch! It's not a baby set really, but it's close enough:)
Here's my project...
The card base is Brocade Blue by SU! and the dp is by K&Co, called Itsy Bitsy! I have been enjoying sewing on my cards lately, especially that zigzag stitch! It's so fun:)
Of course you MUST have seen the April KOM by now, right? If not, click {HERE} for details on how you can be the proud owner of your very own KOM;) Well I was playing around with it again today and made this!
Isn't that dress form stamp great? And the sentiment, oh I think it'll show up on all my cards, lol! These stamps are perfect for shabby/vintage cards! The dp is by Close to My Heart and that big ole flower is by prima.
So in keeping with the baby theme, Angela asked us all to post a baby picture of ourselves. Well, prepare yourself for CUTENESS!
Oh yeah, that's me! I look like a boy, doncha think? LOL! I have a funny story about this picture. When I found it a few months ago, I showed my sweet honey my picture and said "look honey!" His exact words, "THAT'S THE UGLIEST BABY I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!!!" I say, "Ugh, Babe, that's me." He says, "Well, uh...ummm...well you know all babies are ugly the day they're born! It's not just you!" Yeah, smooth recovery bud.
Bwahahaha! I still make him feel bad about that every chance I get, lol!
So yeah, that's me, Amber Dawn, the day I was born, November 4th, 1980:) Don't worry mom, you got cute babies:)
Make sure to hang out with us in the Unity forums today! There are some fun games to be played, including match the DT to their baby pictures (and I have a different picture for the game, so you don't get to cheat;)!
You are seriously *SO* close to the end of the hop, can you smell the blog candy? Well, off you go to Jeanne's blog! I'm sure her projects will rock your socks!
