iSpy Sketch 31 & RCC69


Happy Wednesday!  I am ready for some sunshine---PA is in the midst of a rainy, gray bunch of days and I need to see some BLUE sky!!!  My heart and prayers go out to those affected by Isaac…..we are only getting a little influence of him and I know there are others who have lost it all.  Having served in Louisiana after Katrina, I have seen that destruction firsthand.  So no more complaining from me!

I made a real simple card for the iSpy sketch today.  Here’s the sketch, from my sweet friend Karen Dunbrook, who ALWAYS lets me know when one of my cards was favorited over on SCS!  She is amazing!!!

And here’s my funky Halloween card, using Papaya Collage:


I have been wanting to put that little hat on that bird for a long time!  He’s mounted on an embellishment from the same set, overstamped with the French words from French Foliage and snazzed up with a glimmer brad:


A shabby bow with a little tag finishes it off!


Got questions?  I am only an email away!  This qualifies it for challenge 69 at the Ribbon Carousel as well, which is to use a bow!

Learning letters on the “Funny Bear” statue in my neighbor’s driveway!
