Happy Monday, peeps! A little late today....a lazy Monday, I guess! The Global Design Project challenge this week is Animals, and I needed a get-well card for an elderly gentleman from our church, so I went to work! Here's the challenge:
And here's my simple card:
I positioned my stamp in my Stamparatus, stamped the pup on some Early Espresso cardstock once in Memento Black, cleaned the stamp, then stamped again in Versamark. I then heat-embossed it with some Black embossing powder and fussy-cut it out. I did cut a wee little piece of Poppy Parade for his collar:
and then stamped the sentiment on another scrap and punched it out with the Balloon Punch. I totally messed up the "highlight" of the balloon with my white gel pen; hopefully my friend won't notice too much! I sponged it around the edges for some dimension, then added an embroidery floss bow and string:
The plaid paper is from a 6x6" pad called Pleasant from Authentique, and it's mounted on a Very Vanilla card. And since the challenge from Always Fun is "Anything Goes", I'm going to pop it in there as well! Thanks for popping in today!
This little bluebird was quite friendly this morning and let me take several shots of him through my patio door:
He even stopped for a drink at the bird bath:
It's pretty unusual to have bluebirds all winter long, but we have had several pairs stay here this winter! I love them!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
"Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it." Psalm 34:11-14
