Feathery Just Because


Happy Thursday, all!  One more day until the weekend!  My stamping time this week has been scarce, so this is late and small!  I was intrigued by the Stamping Smile Designs Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week, and of course, I had to play with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch by Linda:


So here is my late, small notecard:


I chose Burlap, Sparkle, and Birds of a Feather for my tic-tac-toe, and I went pretty literal with the sketch, too!  I started with the lacy background from Touches of Texture, stamping on my notecard in Pool Party, then I stamped and cut out the feathers from What the Doodle: Feather (Papertrey) in Pacific Point.  I put a strip of Sticky Strip across the card, adhered a strip of burlap, then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds glitter on top.  Unfortunately, you cannot see the sparkle here in the photo, but it is very cool IRL!  I added a sentiment (Our Daily Bread Designs Mini Tags), and popped up the feathers with a dimensional.  


My last embellishments were a little diecut bird (Poppystamps Chirping Birds), a little linen thread bow, and a single sequin!  Thanks for stopping by!

Cassidy is helping me make zucchini bread...for some reason this year, we have a PLETHORA of zucchini!  More than any other year!  And you can see zucchini pancakes cooling in the background!  Hence the lack of stamping time!


Are you getting tired of my birthday cards?  I have more!  This gorgeous happy creation is from my sweet sister in Christ, Sally:


and from another sweet, loooong-time friend, Billie!  I just love the country feel of this card!


Have a blessed day!

  5. Oh my, LeAnne, those feathers are just so perfect! I am in love with this card and all the different elements on it! The burlap and sweet little bird diecut is such a wonderful addition to go with the feathers! Pretty colors, too! Cassidy looks like she is doing a terrific job filling the bread pans! I will probably be making more bread next week as the zucchini's are coming out our ears too! Haha! TFS and have a great day! :)
