Just For Fun ~ DYSU Challenge #75 Paper Piecing

Wishing you a Sense-A-Tional Sunday #1!

This first post is really an addendum to yesterday's post.  I mentioned that there was a lot of paper piecing going on with my card yesterday and Mary Jo of Scrap My Stash very kindly invited me to join the "Paper Piecing" #75 challenge this week over at DYSU Challenge Blog (Do You Stack Up With Us?). 

I think, if I understand the term correctly, that since I posted my card yesterday, linking it today to DYSU is technically "backlinking."  Right?  I'm still going to link my card, but I understand that I'm not eligible for any prize.  There are just so many excellent cards linked up that I want my baby to play there, too.

So, thank you for letting me unofficially play with you.  Please don't be too creeped out by the baby!  Some of my fans were disenchanted by what I find to be a scream of a card.  They thought it was a different kind of scream.  Yikes!  I have to agree.  There is a difference between how it looks on the computer and how it looks IRL.  It's the eyes.  I should have shook him (illegal in most states) to rearrange his gaze before I snapped him (also illegal in most states).

The details are in yesterday's post here.

Enjoy!  I'll be back in a few minutes with my card for today.

Darnell, sorry I meant to comment on this yesterday and ran out of time.
I think this is the most amazing card I have ever seen. I laughed so hard I made my tonsils hurt ( see my blog for details lol)
Absolutely fabulous, love it.

Too cute, reminds me of when my daughter had the chicken pox. I love all of the little spots on that poor sweet baby.

Great card.........I smiled from ear to ear!!!

You're official because this card was posted after the beginning of the DYSU challenge (June 7). If you entered a project that was posted on your blog before we posted the challenge on our site, that would be "Backlinked". So...good luck!

Funny baby :) I've had that happen lots before, the card looks great and after you take a picture you're looking at it going "what happened?!" Not sure that applies to this card though, :)
