Hello peeps! How was your Monday? Mine was not too bad. My boss came into work today and told us that she feel off of her bicycle three times yesterday. She has a huge orange size lump on the back of her leg and she is a very tiny person so it’s a big lump. My co-worker Nicole and her are doing a 75 mile ride out to Montauk in a few months. They both got those pedals that you wear the special shoes for and “click” in and out of. When you are not used to them and you stop quick it’s hard to do. So basically your feet are attached to the pedals as you go over. Not good at all. I told her I would have given up after the first fall. I give them both a lot of credit, 75 miles is what cars are made for! LOL! The rest of my day was pretty routine, had dinner, came home and crafted a bit. It has become a necessity to craft so I can wind down and I’m quite happy that way!
Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for the Birds, Bees and Butterflies challenge. Just use one or more on your project, not a problem at all!
I needed to use my favorite little bird before he becomes “Vintage”, the one from Backyard Basics. The base of today’s card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. I stamped the feather from another one of my favorites and soon to be “Vintage” sets, Fine Feathers in Crumb Cake down the right side. The panel is Whisper White and the top left corner of the panel and the card are rounded with the Project Life Corner Rounder. My leaves are from the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set and are stamped in Gumball Green. The flowers are from the new Something to Say* Stamp Set, stamped in Sahara Sand and are punched out with the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack*. I added a Basic Jewel Pearl in the middle and a Mini Glue Dot to adhere them. The little bird, as I mentioned, is from the Backyard Basics Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers*. I told you that I colored a lot this weekend! My greeting is from the also soon to be “Vintage” Happy Watercolor Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black*. I adhered the panel to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and done! I can’t tell you enough how much I love the new Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers! I really hope that you enjoyed my card for the SUO Challenges Birds, Bees and Butterflies challenge. Head on over to the blog to see the other projects from the design team and upload yours to the gallery to play along! Thanks for stopping by today to see my project. Have a great Tuesday! 🙂
