I think I shy away from these tall cards, because they are so darned hard to photograph. An artificial light situation didn’t help. Ok. That’s all the complaining you’ll hear from me this evening.
My card is my take on CPS #156 as featured on the Card Positioning Systems blog. If you take a peek at the sketch, you’ll note I turned it around a bit. The sentiment on the right with the bird facing the fold of the card didn’t look right.
About that bird, I made two. The first one fell on the floor, and I couldn’t for the life of me find it. The funny thing was the floor was clear with the exception of a couple small scraps of paper. Hmm… a disappearing bird that will eventually show up in some strange location. Oh, and the stamped bird was mounted on a piece of chipboard, which I attached to the card with foam tape.

Here are a couple more cards, which were inspired by this awesome card on the P[inks] blog. It’s based on a sketch challenge, too, but I don’t know which one and am too lazy to hunt for it. These were quick, easy, fun cards. The only challenge involved cutting out the babies with their stick arms and legs.

Tired and not feeling quite right, I took the afternoon off to come home and rest. After having done that, I’m perkier and getting ready to go bowling. When I get home, there will be a pair of little overnight guests waiting to play until bedtime. There is no better way to end the day.
I hope your day is going well. On a high note, the workweek is on the downslide. Only two days left. Take care, friends, and enjoy the evening. Talk to you again soon.
