Hi, peeps! :)
Today's card is one I made just for fun ~ a spotlight card!
I'm blessed to belong to a crafty group called the Stamp Addicts and asked our sweet leader, Lynn, if I could toss a challenge out this month :)
I have been wanting to make a spotlight card for awhile -
safety in numbers, right? :)
Yup! I'm that far behind in the crafting world!
While everyone has moved on to Craquelure and Gesso,
I'm still taking baby steps through techniques
I meant to try and never did ;)
Here's a better side view of the spotlighted area - this card has 8 layers!
This card is heading to a special friend and I couldn't think of anything 'owl' related to say at the time ;)
The owl stamp is from Unity Stamp Co "Hoot of a Day"
and I stamped out a tree branch for the owl to rest on ... the tree is
from Taylored Expressions stamp set called "Branching Out" ~
a set that I love dearly! When I first bought it upon it's release,
part of the proceeds of the sales went towards a tree charity called
the Eden project - isn't that wonderful!
Now, I bought this set in 2009 but you can read about it here -
still warms my heart :)
I added a strip of burlap ribbon, used some yummy papers from
Cosmo Cricket called S'more Love - oh. my. word!
This is the yummiest paper on the planet!! I've used this 3 times already for cards and a swap and I keep peeking to make sure I have at least one sheet left of each one :)
In addition to getting my jog in, I have a PTA meeting (already!)
this morning and a quick meeting with the bible study ladies - school pick ups and drop offs, Tae Kwan Do across town after school for little man
and if I'm lucky, the library! :)
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!~Kelly
I'll enter this card into: Little Red Wagon - Lots of Layers
