oh, to be creating again! I am practically singing...MIL had a fab checkup with the surgeon yesterday, is feeling like staying by herself and it's given me back so of "MY" time. Yep, I feel like dancing too!
And so, in honor of the 365 Card ad inspired pillow and the Ways to Use it on SCS...it was like being in a fabric store and bead shop all rolled into one. I reversed the orientation of the pillow on my card, using Basic Grey's Ambrosia papers. Tim Holtz's crow stands in for the parrots. The butterflies are from Cornish Heritage Farms...linked with Memento Tuxedo Black and embossed with clear ep. I colored the Monarch with Copics and the brilliant blue is a shimmer paper. I added the 'no's' and numerals from a set by Purple Onion Designs called Observation. At the bottom of the crow are some postmarks stamped lightly in Tim Holtz distress ink Frayed Burlap. These along with the tiny postage stamp were gifts from Amy when we visited together earlier in the year. I didn't have a coolio poms for the trim so I took the simpler route with white twine.
Thanks so much for having a peep...and Pam, you are right about Amy, she has the GIFT of encouragement! I am happy to call her friend. Have a deLIGHTful day!
