Woohoo! Anyone who knows Anne Marie knows she likes BLING! I have had these square-cut gems in my bling thing drawer forEVER! I was so excited that I would have a chance to use them:
I first chose my colors of Pink Passion, Pink Pirouette, Pool Party and Soft Sky to match my gems. I stamped a mosaic from Mosaic Madness in each color and then tried to figure out how to achieve a pleasing layout. Nothing was appealing to me, so I decided to emboss what I call the “snowflake” border from the Delicate Designs set, and what do you know…the mosaics fit perfectly! Usually I do white for CAS designs, but I thought the Soft Sky cardstock really looked pretty with these jewel tones!
I added a simple sentiment from Fabulous Phrases and my CAS creation was done! I hope you’ll take a few minutes to play with the Paper Players this week and share your clean and simple blingy creation! Can’t wait to see it! And while you’re there, be sure to check out what gorgeous creations the other designers have made as well!
At different times both John & I noticed a young catbird that hopped around our yard and did not fly away when we got near. We finally determined that it has a damaged wing! Cassidy loves to try to “catch” birds, so this one was about her speed:
She actually managed to get pretty close to it, then it scooted under some bushes!
Try as we might, it was pretty well hidden and we couldn’t find it!
