YAY! It's Friday!
Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!
It's always so good to have you visit!
Today I have a card creation for my DT spot at the Fussy and Fancy Blog.
The talented Eileen is our hostess today and her theme of choice is:
Let's Fly Away (Thing's with Wings/Holiday Destinations )
AND, we are proudly
sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs
Even though hubby & I 'flew away' to the beautiful west coast & Alaska this summer, I think I need to start 'bugging' him about maybe 'flying away' to the warm beaches come the first of the year when the snow if flying here in Ohio and the temperatures are bitter cold. Hence the direction my mind took for today's card.
I created the background panel by simply sponging Tim Holtz 'broken china' on the top of a white card stock panel and Tim Holtz 'tea dye' on the bottom. My images come from a Crafty Secrets (sorry out of business) Creative Scraps sheet and my sea birds are Impression Obsession #DIE078.
There's a STORY behind the feathers charm . . .
Each month we make donations to various organizations and don't ask me why, but in return we receive all sorts of things in the mail. From note pads, to calculators, ... nickels & dimes to necklaces & dream catchers. This feather charm was on one of those mentioned necklaces. I knew I'd never wear it so I decided to use the feathers on today's card. I wish they'd just accept and put the money to good use and stop sending 'stuff' back to us in return ... kind of defeats the purpose of our donation!!! LOL A simple thank you is more than enough.
I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!
