Mother Bird!

Hi Kids!

I know, I know . . . I'm posting on a Saturday.  Well, I've been wandering around the house in my jammies, doing a bit of crafting, and relaxing a bit, too.  I made this card for the current 2 Sketches 4 You Sketch #50 Challenge, and I needed to get it posted before the deadline.   I've never played along with this challenge, so I was really excited to give it a go.  Notice that I flipped the sketch on it's side.  Worked better for my images.  I've also used the current Caardvarks challenge, which is to make a monochromatic card.  This is pretty monochromatic, right?!  LOL  I have until May 3rd for that challenge deadline, so I might need to do another sample.  We'll see how I feel.

The pattern paper is some new Fancy Pants Road Show DP that I picked up at my LSS (which announced this week that they are closing their doors - CRAP!!).  Love the soft and subtle patterns, as well as the sweet color of this paper.  I thought it would go perfectly with the Impression Obsession clear set called "Home Sweet Nest."  Isn't it pretty?  I love that little momma birdie watching her eggs - thought this would make a great Mother's Day card, hence the sentiment.

That's it for me today!  I'm having fun hanging out in my little crafting space this weekend, so I'd better get back to work before the mojo dries up.  Hope you're enjoying your weekend as much as I am!
