Embossed Baby

Happy Saturday everyone!  Here in Massachusetts it is an absolutely gorgeous fall day -  slightly warmer than usual being in the 60's bright sunshine with the beautiful color and smell of the fall foliage!  The Red Sox had a rolling rally in Boston today on the duck tour vehicles to celebrate their great win of the World Series -  but we didn't venture in with the million or so people who did!

So moving along to my card - today I made a  baby boy card  
 I clear embossed the Waltzingmouse Zigzag backgrounder stamp on some blueberry sky card stock for the PTI  baby die cut and the panel. 
 The white panel is dry embossed with Life Style Crafts Polka Dots.  I stamped the welcome from MultiStamp Baby set by Kitchen Sink Stamps onto a Die-namics Sentiment Strip.

I'm putting this card in two challenges:

and I used this weeks Seize the Sketch for my card design (although I flipped it!)
Tonight Kent and I are going to the Melrose Symphony  - Melrose is the city next to our town and they have a wonderful symphony that we buy season tickets to and tonight is the first performance of the season.  We meet some friends there and have a wonderful evening of beautiful music.

Tomorrow after church I am running a Card Stamping Workshop at my church with two friends -  we make 3 cards and it costs $10 which we donate to the church -  we usually have around 12 people - and it's a fun few hours chatting and stamping!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Zig Zag Background Stamp, welcome from Multi-Stamp Baby set/Kitchen Sink Stamps.
Paper:  white, blueberry sky - PTI
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Versamark
Accessories:  baby die - Wonderful words/PTI, Die-namics Sentiment Strips - MFT, clear embossing powder, hot gun, polka dots embossing folder - Life Style Crafts, foam dots.
