STB19 and LRW189


Ah, it’s Friday, peeps!  The end of the week…it’s been a long one!  I liked the Seize the Birthday sketch Lesley had this week, so I made two!

I have a plethora of 6x6 pads in a myriad of colors and prints, so I thought I’d better dig into some!  The challenge this week at Little Red Wagon is to use at least three prints on your card—not hard to do for me!  The first one is my favorite, a pretty blue one with a vintage feel:


The little montage is just part of the paper---I trimmed it down, mounted it on a piece of burlap and added some ribbon.  I just love that bird! 


The little sentiment is from A Fitting Occasion; burlap was from my stash.

The next one uses a felt flower I made, and I actually sewed all the panels before adhering my center panel.  I sewed a wee bit on the flower too:


I like this one, but I think the colors are a bit more subdued….maybe it’s that gray that holds it back!  The sentiment on this one is from Papertrey.  All papers are from MME:  Lost & Found 3, Oliver: Lost & Found 2, Blush, and The Sweetest Thing, Honey.

What can we see with the binoculars?


How about Grampy?


Enjoy your day!
