May Your Dreams Take Flight!

Happy Tuesday!

Hope this finds you all relaxed and rested after a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.  We had a fun but very busy weekend, and I now need a vacation from my vacation!  LOL  All in all we had a great time with the family though.  How about you?
Dreams Take Flight
The ABC Toys & Crafts Design Team is participating in another monthly challenge, and we’d be over the moon thrilled to death if you’d play along with us.  This month, Sandy has ABc sketch created a fabulous sketch as a jumping off point.  I found it to be very inspiring.  I just had to pull out my “Ashley’s Blossoms” by My Cute Stamps.  I love the idea of stamping directly onto the designer paper, so I did.  First, I stamped the bird, and then I stamped the cage over the top of that.  I feel like it gives the bird some dimension, don’t you?

STAMPS:  Ashley’s Blossoms (My Cute Stamps), May Your Dreams Take Flight (A Muse)
Tuxedo Black (Memento), Bahama Blue (Memento)
PAPER:  Black Licorice CS (Poptone), Sweet Blush CS (PTI), Life’s Portrait DP (Webster’s Pages)
ACCESSORIES:  Janome Sew Mini, Sweet Blush and True Black Buttons (PTI),
Self-Adhesive Pearls Medium (Hero Arts), Self-Adhesive Pearls Small (Hero Arts), Self-Adhesive Pearls Medium (Hero Arts), Organdy Ribbon (May Arts), Scrapper’s Floss (Karen Foster)
If you want to play along with us, Julie is offering a $20 store credit to a random participant.  You can get all the details of the challenge right HERE.  My favorite challenges are sketch challenges because I find it fascinating how others interpret the sketch.  You really should give it a go!!


That’s it for me today.  I’ve got buckets of laundry to do, so I’d probably better get started.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
