Enjoy Bird Cages

Today's card is totally cased. I created it a while ago when getting ready for the Extravaganza Display this weekend. It was a bit funny/helpful/bizzare how quite a number of blogs I visited during that time used the Nature Walk stamp set. I have then been able to case some cards to add to my display - and believe me, I will be giving credit to the inspirational stampers!

This idea comes from Nance at Canopy Crafts. She is a fellow Color Dare Design Team Member and I love seeing what she has created on her blog! Below is the card which Nance created. I have to admit I placed all of my birdcages in the EXACT same order she did. I didn't want to mess it up!

I also liked how Nance only crimped up a portion of the Seam Binding Ribbon and it's so easy to do with this ribbon!

I must say I came home from a good day at school, knew I didn't have to go to choir tonight - so I took off my makeup, and had my pj's on by 4:30. I'm going to settle into my stamping room for a while, probably play some games and then I'm ready to hit the sack whenever I feel like it. Life is good!

Hope you had an enjoyable, productive day. Thanks for stopping by! Joan
