Big Birthday Wishes for Sunday Stamps
It's all about the birds... for Addicted to CAS

Shoes can change your life....

Hi Everyone.

One of the things that I challenged myself to do is to use up all of the supplies that come in my monthly card kits.  I find that I make one or two cards and then move on to the next thing.  It's a terrible waste!

These DSPs came in the SimonSaysStamp March card kit... this kit is one of my all time favorites. I really do love the black, white and yellow color scheme and when I saw this particular sheet, I knew the person I could create a card for and someone who would appreciate the sentiment on it!

I started by cutting out a frame in the middle of the cameo paper and placed the frame onto a piece of Basic Black card stock.  I then framed the sentiment DSP and used my Lil Inker Rectangle stitched dies to create a frame for it.   I then mounted that onto two layers of fun foam and placed it in the middle of the cameo DSP frame.

Here's my card:

I hope that the recipient will really enjoy it!  I'm so glad that I forced myself to use up my supplies and am so surprised it took me so long to use  these supplies.

On a personal note:

We are still in love with our screened in porch and we love the fact that we can sit out under the deck when it is raining.  It's so incredibly peaceful and is going to be even better when the colors come in!

Talking of colors..... when we were on our cruise in October last year, I attended an art auction and discovered this amazing artist - his name is Patrick Guyton.

He uses Japanese leafing as the base of his artwork and with glazing manages to create the most amazing pieces of artwork.  The light that projects from his pieces fascinates me.   One piece in particular caught my eye because the colors were perfect for our family room.  It captures and reflects every available piece of light and is gorgeous at any time of the day.

Check it out:

Look at that light shining off the silver leafing.  The blues change from muted to bright depending on how you look at it.  It absolutely fascinates me.  Here's a closeup... here you can see the leafing:

Isn't that stunning?  I am absolutely in love with it!

Anyway, I'll be back in a couple of days with another card - and a few more photos.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Great looking card and such a fitting sentiment. I'm sure the recipient will love the card.
Beautiful piece of artwork as well.

As if the bad weather isn't enough to deal with down here, here in Johnson County we also had a 4.0 M earthquake last evening around 6pm Was quite the shaker; things falling off the walls and shelves. Last night was the 2nd largest quake we have had. The other was a 3. something or other. Have had small tremors off and on but last evenings was a real shaker.

Enjoy your day. Have a great evening and wishing Everyone a Very Happy Mother's Day weekend.
