Bird on a Branch


Happy Thursday, peeps!  I want to thank everyone for all the lovely birthday wishes and cards I received on Tuesday….makes getting older a little bit easier, LOL!  I hope to share some of the cards with you soon!  It seems my stamping and blogging time has been severely limited this summer, but that’s okay.  Cassidy will be heading for kindergarten in the fall, so I want to spend as much time with her as I can!  We had a sleepover last night and she is still sleeping at 8am, so I was able to get in a little stamp time this morning:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings CAS bird on a branch

There is very little stamping on this, just the verse from a retired Cornish Heritage Farms set, which I stamped in Tangerine Tango.  I diecut the bird in Lost Lagoon and the branch in Crumb Cake and punched out the flower in Tangerine Tango as well.  I know these colors are unusual but I saw a dress the other day using these colors, so I had to go with it!  The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches, and I flipped it so my little bird wouldn’t be staring off into space:

and it’s also for the Kraft Journal’s CAS challenge to use an inspirational message!  I hope you enjoy your day…it’s going to be another hot one in PA!

We went to a nearby pool yesterday….it’s in the heart of the Amish country, and yes, the Amish people like to go swimming, too!  It was cool to be at the pool and hear the clip-clop of the horse-drawn buggies going down the road!  Anyway, Cassidy finally grasped the concept of doggy-paddling, so she wore herself out swimming around the pool!  No pix, but when she came home, she continued playing in the water with her water table, flipping the little swimmers:



After dinner, she brought them inside and lined them up with her mini puppies and they took turns sliding down the sliding board, LOL!!! 


Thanks for visiting!

I love this sweet card, LeAnnne! Those dies are so sweet! I can't believe Cassidy starts kindergarten this year!

Lovely card! And I'm sorry- I'm trying to catch up with some blog reading this week. Happy belated birthday! How is it possible that Cassidy is off to kindergarten?!

This is so beautiful LeAnne. I love the texture from burlap and using that ribbon was perfect for the flag on the sketch! And can I just say "kindergarten!" I can hardly believe Cassidy is old enough to go. It's so cliche, but time really does fly!

Hi LeAnne! Happy belated birthday!! (how did I miss it?!) I hope it was a wonderful day. I love this card - the texture you added with the burlap ribbon is wonderful and I love the color combination - such a breath of fresh air! Hope all is well with you!

Terrific texture and I love the fonts on the sentiment! Can't believe Cassidy will be going to kindergarten. Soak up every moment you can with her ;)
