Happy Saturday friends and thanks for stopping by today!
I haven't had anything to share the past couple of days so thought I'd do a little 'clean up' and see what was on my worktable that could be used for a card to share with you today ... (multitasking where I can, lol).
I spotted the Birthday challenges at Cut It Up and QKR Stampede so that was the direction I headed. And, of course you can never have enough birthday cards in your stash.
You will see in weeks to come a few other creations using the beautiful Birds & Blooms stamps & dies from Heartfelt Creations (older sets but still beautiful). I don't think to create with these fabulous sets nearly enough! I'm always so happy with the outcome when I do. These branches & birds were leftover from those upcoming DT creations so that was the next step in my birthday card creation.
My background panel was created using scraps of various design papers of the same color palette and adhering them to another white card stock panel using either scor-tape or double sided sticky paper. I took a day (long time ago) and went through my scrap design papers and created these background panels ... again, I need to remember I have them and use them.
This is a GREAT way to use up scraps! I know you have them!! LOL
A few other challenges I'd like to share in today are:
Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge # 158 - Celebration + ribbon/trim
Morgan's ArtWorld Challenge #4 - For the Ladies
Craft-Dee Bowz February Challenge - ATG w/bow
Creatalicious Challenge #109 - ATG w/ribbon or twine
Again, I thank you for stopping by!
How about this weather!! Yesterday we set a record here in Akron, OH
at 77 degrees. It was such a beautiful day/evening our neighbors gathered everyone
together for an evening of sitting around the bonfire sharing stories, snacks & wine.
It was like a summertime evening gathering in February! CRAZY!!!
But very enjoyable!!
Today we are back to February weather with snow in the forecast!! LOL
As always . . .
