Thinking of You

Hello Crafteteers!

FINALLY...the weekend has arrived!  Not sure of your plans but I hope whatever you do will be filled with friends, family and fun.  :)

I finished a card last night that was supposed to be CAS.  It is not complicated but I am not sure if I would call it the "poster card" of CAS cards.  Crafting evolution can be wonderful!

The chickadee digital image I won recently at Stamp n Doodle.  Isn't that chickadee just the cutest?  The image was colored with distress inks, the blue sky with chalk and Stickles glitter was applied to the tree's needles.  Die cuts in white (Spellbinders' Marvelous Squares), baby blue (Captivating Squares) and white (Cheery Lynn French Pastry doily) were stacked as shown.

The card base is Recollections' corrugated base with TH white distress paint applied.  I really like the look of the base and will definitely use this technique on future cards.

The double bow (my first using this technique from Inspired by Stamping!) has Recollections' bling adhered to the top. The sentiment is from JustRite set Enjoy The Day stamp set and die cut using JR die set Vintage Labels and Banners.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
