A Little Birdie Told Me...

You are all special! I appreciate every one of you!

DS is back from his vacation in Hawaii, the Cardinal's won and are now in 1st place, DD and DH are safe and sound, and today was a pretty decent day at work. I actually have some energy left over, so I think I'm going to do a little creating, and then work on our monthly reports for a couple of hours. Hopefully, UE will keep our power up and running so I can be on the computer!

I hope you enjoy this card. I made it for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, and I'm pretty happy with it. I flipped the card upside down, and side to side. I just happened to have a buckle punch, and decided to use it. I just love the DP - it's by The Scrapbook Wizard, and I picked it up the last time I was at O'Dear's. Cute DP and a great sketch just makes it so easy to figure out what to make! The Stamps are the cutest little set by Hero Arts. My friend Shirley gave me this set in one of her many 'goodie' packages she sends my way! (She's the best!) I am beginning to get the hang of clear stamps, and I'm really diggin' them. I love how you can see exactly where you want to place your image!

Speaking of cute stamps, OMG, have you seen the newest sets at Gina K. Designs? I'm lovin' the sports set that Melanie designed! (Bet you can't guess that it includes baseball stuff???)

I just finished this card for the first ever Polkadoodles Challenge! Hope you like it!

Well, I guess I need to get to my workspace and crank out another challenge - today IS Wednesday, after all, and a couple of these are due on Thursday!

Have a great night!

Hi Patti!

I love this little card... such sweet images and sentiment. I love birds.

Hey, girl, you need to head over to my blog as I left a little something (or two) for you there!

Just finally catching up on long overdue blog surfing. I've enjoyed catching up with you.
