Polkadoodles and The Shabby Tea Room (take 2)

Ok, let me start by saying that I am taking a big chance posting this card today because I should be sleeping right now!  I worked last night and I should have gone to sleep hours ago!  When my family sees this post and realizes that I'm still awake they are going to be soooooo mad!!  LISA YOU NEED SLEEP!!!  They are not wrong but they don't understand my obsession!! 

Ok, enough of my blabbering, today I made a card for 2 different challenges.  The first one is a cute challenge blog named Polkadoodles and their challenge this week is called Sew and Sew.  They want to see some sewing on the card.  I love to sew and I keep my sewing machine out and frequently add stitching to my cards.  I love the look it gives them and it adds interest!  This card has been hand sewn around the edges and the top embellishment has been sewn into place.  The background of the card is a vintage piece of paper from an old French dictionary.  Don't you just love it?!?
The second challenge is of course one of my favorites!!  I already entered a card at The Shabby Tea Room this week but I couldn't help but to enter this one too!  My main focus on this card is the polka dot apron on the front and this week their challenge was to use polka dots.

I just love my new stamps from Papertrey Ink, they are called Just For You and they are so darn cute!  Check them out here.
Well, that's all for now, I hope you all like this card as much as I do.  I think it just might be my favorite card yet!

Ok I hope I make it upstairs without falling asleep on the stairs!
Have a great day, I already am!!
