CAS341 and CI54 A Little Hello

Happy May Day, everyone!  I am glad May is here, spring is finally sticking around!  I am playing with a new-to-me challenge today, Colour INKspiration (at their FB page) as well as the CASology turquoise challenge:
No photo description available.

I pulled out some retired colors, Tempting Turquoise and Taken with Teal, for my little wreath card today:

I stamped the greenery from Botanical Bliss twice around to create my wreath, then stamped the bird in Stazon black and fussy-cut him out.  It surprises me that SU has such a nice coordinating die for  some of the images in this set, but no bird die!!!  Anyway, I added a little sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, backed it with a wee little black mat and popped them both up on the wreath with mini dimensionals.  The bird looked a little bare, so I added some Taken with Teal greenery diecut with the Botanical Tags die and added some of the smallest Basic Black faceted embellishments:

I diecut the panel with the largest Stitched Rectangle die, added another narrow mat of Basic Black and adhered it all to a Whisper White card....I left the inside blank so I could use it for any upcoming occasion!  Glad you popped in today---be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Inspired By challenge!

Speaking of May--we had some intense April showers last week that hopefully will bring May flowers!  Cassidy, Lee and Grampy were all out in the garage when the deluge started!  Grampy sent Lee and Cassidy to the porch with his big golf umbrella, while he used Cassidy's ladybug umbrella!  It was pretty funny!

Cassidy had forgotten all about this umbrella, so she insisted on using it instead (and putting on a fake sad face), while Lee just loved standing out and watching the rain pour down!!

But there was no playing outside after that deluge!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I so enjoy the pictures that you capture. What a great friendship Cassidy and Lee have and Grampy is so much fun too! Needless to say, I love your card design and totally agree about the dies! Have a blessed day.

I love your card, LeAnne … made me remember a favorite Beatles song... if you'd like to hear it!
What's in a name? 'Grampy' says it all!

The turquoise wreath is just stunning LeAnne and I've never understood why there is no fire for that bird either! Love the umbrella photos - good old Grampy!

LeAnne... such a fabulous wreath. Just love your shade of turquoise. Don't like to see Cassidy's sad face even if make-believe...she is just too cute! Thanks so much for joining CASology this week!

Oh, I like every little thing about this. Super cute! But not as cute as Grampy, what a guy!
