Hi there! I hope you all had a fab weekend! We had a good one - except for yesterday morning 3 of our dogs got ahold of one of our feral (wild) cats & tore him up pretty badly. His jaw is fractured & he has several large puncture wounds. He's home from the vet's now so we have a temporary cat ICU in my husband's office bathroom, lol. Hopefully he'll recover - poor little guy!
Anyway, I really wanted to enter a couple of challenges but with all the cat/dog drama I couldn't get my project finished in time to link up. However, I decided to carry out the challenges anyway, just for the experience & fun. The first challenge was over at DL Art & it was to use only the color purple & one other color. The other challenge was over at K Andrew's blog & the theme was to do a wedding or engagement project. I was able to combine the 2 challenges into one card, which I had a blast making!....
I am entering this card into the following current challenges:
I used my Cricut Expression & Gypsy for this project. The card base is from the "Sentimentals" cartridge, cut at 5.25". All of the paper/cardstock I used is from my stash of loose papers, although I think most of it is Bazzill. The main image is from the "Damask Decor" cartridge, cut at 4". I used pop-dots for the main image on top of the twine & also for the birds by themselves.
The twine is "lilac" from The Twinery. The button, fabric flower, brad, eyelet, pearls & rhinestones are from my stash. The tiny lavender dots are from a Viva Decor Paper-Pen in "lilac". I used Stickles in "Star Dust" to outline the birds & on the tips of the fabric flower & "Lavender" on the eyelet & the heart brad.
All of the stamps on the outside & inside are by K Andrew Designs. I love love love her stamps! They are super high quality and the mix & match options are virtually endless! They are definitely a fabulous deal for the price & worth every penny. I used combinations from 2 sets: "Owly Hoo Sentiments" & "Winter Wishes". The little swirly flourishes on the inside are on the "Winter Wishes" set as well.
Well folks... I think that's all for today. Thank you so much for stopping by & taking the time to view my blog. I really appreciate all the super sweet comments too! See you real soon....
