Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday.
It's the fabulous Anja's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge and she has a great code word for us this week
We hope you will play along with us. As usual we have a great prize for our winner:
For my card, I made the glasses dies and one of the sentiments from the stamp set as my focal point. To make the card a little more special, I heat embossed the sentiment in gold embossing powder and die-cut the glasses from vellum. I used my Copic marker to color the back of the vellum and mounted them with a little foam tape. Because the vellum has some strength, it made a great medium for the glasses.
Here's a closeup of the focal element:
I added another sentiment to the inside to finish off the card.
On a personal note:
Oh.... the weather outside is glorious! Still! Today Lou and I went for a drive and visited a nursery and drove back through the Rice Creek Water system of lakes. It was amazing. But... it was great to get back to our little paradise and look out over the wetland.
As I type this blog post, I am at the dinette table and watching the plethora of birds that are visiting the jelly feeder. In the last 10 minutes we have seen: the grey catbird; yellow bellied sapsucker; orioles; purple finch; downy woodpecker; rebellied woodpecker; redheaded woodpecker; a grackle (grrrrrr); the robin and even the hummingbird took a look to see whether there was anything worth while! Who would have thought a little organic jelly and an orange would generate so much activity :-) But, I am so glad that they do!
I didn't get to spend any time in my craft room today, but will be in there tomorrow. Before I go though, I wanted to leave you with a photo of one of our visitors. Neither Lou nor I can remember the robins every being at the jelly before. So, this is a first for us.
I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
