Happy Thursday, peeps! The weekend is almost here! I loved the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week! Check it out:
In my self-imposed challenge to use some sets that haven’t seen the light of day lately, I dusted off Papaya Collage and pulled out the bird. Edited to add: this bird is from Betsy' Blossoms, NOT Papaya Collage!!! I am also challenged by this particular pattern from the Fresh Prints collection, most of which I LOVE, but this one is just a little out of my comfort zone. So I paired them up and came up with this:
It’s all pretty straightforward; I did add an embossed panel just so I could anchor my ribbons behind it, but everything else is plain and simple! I also popped up the wing as well as the “hi” with some dimensionals:
It’s pretty bright….but overall, I like it!
I also wanted to show you my original card for this week’s challenge at the Paper Players:
The theme was Spring Thank You; I love this card, but I really didn’t think the black made it very springy, so I put it aside. But I thought I would share it anyway! And Baja Breeze is retired, sadly….it’s still one of my favorite blues!
Cassidy “rediscovered” her homemade play-doh, and she literally played with this for about two hours…..I haven’t had her be so focused on one plaything ever!!! She informed us she was making Christmas cookies, and she made a whole plateful!
