Happy Thursday!!! I'm scheduling this post when it's actually Wednesday - so I'm really looking forward to Thursday. #1 - it's one of my most favorite days at school. #2 - Author Sigmund Brouwer is visiting our school today - he writes novels for children (mostly for boys!!!! Yipee- a greatly needed genre!) and he also writes incredible adult Christian Fiction. #3 - it's almost Friday.
Anyway - I love these little birds which come from Delightful Inspiration. They are just so much fun!!! Faith asked us to think outside the box for colours and such. I used the sketch from Midnight Madness. I love how they give you the
option of going all out or keeping it simple.
The Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoast this week was to take one of the cards you'd made previously and change it to a CAS card. I went through my stash and just pulled this one out which I made last year. I had embossed the swirls on Sage Shadow and then covered them with velum and added the little pearls from the Pretties Kit.
How convenient for me that I still had the black version of the rub-on words so was able to duplicate the card easily. I kept the base and ribbon the same but opted for DSP and brads for the embellishments. I didn't spritz or stamp the Apricot
Appeal with anything - that may drive me nuts in the long run. I seem to have an aversion to plain paper....unless it's matting.
Anyway - here's to anticipating a fantastic day. I hope the same goes for you. Thanks for stopping by!!
ps - is there anyone else out there who is getting teary eyed over some of the commercials and features during the Olympics. The Tim Horton's commercial with the Dad meeting his family at the airport with suitcases full of winterwear.....yeah, tears!!! And the segment that I just saw with Michael J. Fox skating .....knowing what he's gone through!!! Wow!!!
