Need a Cuddle?

Here's a little card I made using the Cuddle Me set from Paper Pretties. It's for today's Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS, Going Dotty. . .to use polka dots! I LOVE polka dots! I just LOVE this little girl too! Her long hair reminds me so much of Savannah. I always pull Savannah's hair back like this. She doesn't necessarily have a bow in her hair, but my mom always buys her frilly ponytail holders, so she's always got beads or ribbons in her hair. The dress is paper pieced to match the swatch of patterned paper in the background.

Thanks to those of you who have asked how Savannah is doing! She is much better. We thought it was a possible bladder infection, but her urine culture was negative AND this morning, Arwen came down with a high fever. So, it looks like whatever Savannah has (or had) Arwen now has. I'm just praying Isaac doesn't get it too. I think this is the worst part of being a mother. My heart just breaks each time my kids are sick. I just hope they get over it quickly. Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you're having a wonderful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Cuddle Me (Paper Pretties); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine), Old Olive, Creamy Caramel; Paper- Whisper White, green (The Paper Company), patterned paper (Nana's KIDS Stack, DCWV); Accessories- blender pen, Really Rust, Blush Blossom markers, corner rounder, polka dot organdy ribbon (Doodliedoo).
