Hello Stampy Friends!
It’s time, once again, for another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. Wasn’t last week’s birthday celebration super fun?!! I loved checking out all of your beautiful creations – you all just blow me away!! No doubt, you’ll be just as inspired by this week’s challenge, which is: Create a CLEAN & SIMPLE project and include a bird in your design. Inspiring, right?!
And with a new challenge, we have another fabulous sponsor. Annabelle Stamps is this week’s brilliant sponsor, and they’ve provided a terrific prize for this week’s TGIF winner. But, you’ll have to click on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to find out what it is! Thank you, Annabelle Stamps!! Oh, and while you’re checking out this week’s prize, be sure and feast your eyes on all of the amazing eye candy that the other Girl Fridays have created for your inspiration – it’s delicious, I tell ya!
I actually created several samples for today’s challenge . . . just couldn’t get a groove going. After several attempts, this is what I came up with. If you look close (I think if you click on the pic, it’ll get bigger), you can see that I stamped my houndstooth background from Paper Smooches on the green panel behind the wood grain cardstock. The die cut leaves and freakin’ adorable birdie are from W Plus 9 Designs. I’ve listed the other products used below:
STAMPS: Essential Sentiments (A Muse Studio), Houndstooth Background (Paper Smooches)
INK: Chocolate and Basil (Fresh Ink)
PAPER: Hot Fudge and Gum Drop (French Poptone), Berry Sorbet (PTI), Wood Grain CS (The Cat’s Pajamas)
OTHER: Pearls (Kaiser Craft), Folk Art Floral Dies (W Plus 9 Designs)
Well, I hope you all will play along with us again this week – we so love it when you do! Thanks so much for stopping my blog today. I’ll be spending the weekend getting ready for the arrival of my daughters and my grandsons on Monday – be still my heart!! Hope you have an amazing weekend, too!!
