Silly Sunday

I made this card yesterday before going into my cleaning frenzy. I thought a little whimsy might cheer me up. Turns out an orderly work surface was what I needed! Now, I'm scared to mess it up. LOL.

Anyway, my card was made with this funky set from Wordsworth. While that is neither the cutest nor most realistic bird I've ever seen, it fits. To make the card I sponged some ink on white cardstock using the cloud stencil I came across last weekend. All of the other elements were stamped on separate paper, cut out and glued to the background. To make the grass, I randomly snipped along the paper's edge. The "leaves" were cut using 13/16 and 1-inch circle punches. All but two of the smaller ones were attached to the card with foam mounting tape.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Clover Meadow, and Star Spangled Blue cardstock; Heavenly Blue, Clover Meadow, Cocoa, Star Spangled Blue, and Holiday Red ink pads; Wordsworth It's Your Day stamp set; Cloud stencil; 13/16 and 1-inch circle punches; 3M foam mounting tape.

I got quite a bit accomplished after my post last night. Although I have a long way to go, my corner is looking much better. I slept better last night, too, which means I'm a little perkier today. I hope you have a wonderful day. I'm off to prepare my stamp club that was postponed last week. Take care, and thanks for stopping by!
