You're On My Mind

Remember how I told you I bowled like I knew what I was doing last week? It wasn't that way tonight, but I laughed my butt off anyway, so it was good. My card is another inspired by some I saw on the Flourishes blog, more a color combination than a particular card. It's a bummer that you can't see the sparkle on the flowers. It makes the card. What you can see is the upper right-hand corner accent, a 'cover-up' for a poor job of piercing. As it looks OK, I don't suppose I would have had to have told you, but laying it all out part of my style I guess. The vines and flowers were colored with markers. I went around the flowers with an inked up blending pen, too. The bird was stamped, cut out, and glued to the branch.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Breeze, and Black cardstock; Black and Breeze ink pads; Flourishes Birds in Vines and Verve Stamps Heartfelt Phrases stamp sets; Silver mini brads; Star Dust Stickles; Stampin' Up Word Window and Photo Corner punches.

It's Thursday already tomorrow. This week is moving right along. I've got all kinds of stuff going on at work - seldom a dull moment, which is good. I hope your week is going well, and with that, I'm off to my corner to see if I can find a little mojo before bedtime. Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful! You know, we must have a similiar routine, we always seem to visit each other's blog around the same time each night!

Very, very pretty! You do have a way with birds!

I loved how you said you bowled like you knew what you were doing. I rarely did that when I bowled on a league...they liked me on the team for my handicap! LOL

Have a great Thursday!
