Good morning friends! I know, I know it has been sometime since I posted last and I'll tell ya why. It seems like every time I sit down to craft it is such a struggle to come up with even a mediocre card (today's is an example). I think some people would call it losing their mojo...I would call it frustrating.
Anyway, this image is so cute...is it not? It features the image and sentiment from the Doodle Pantry set called Snowbirdie. The COLORED image is so fun with its pattered colors! I couldn't decide which patterned papers I wanted to use so I thought I'd try the green and blue and I love it together! I kept trying different things to dress this card up a bit and nothing really worked. I added faux stitching and some stitching around the main image as well as (even though you can't see it) smooch in some of the snow and the pom pom on top of the birdie's hat. The layout for this card is from this week's CPS sketch.
Make sure you check out Doodle Pantry's digital challenge running until the 24th at 8pm CST. All you have to do is use a Doodle Pantry image (not just sentiment), link it up to the blog and you will not only receive the Quirky Penguin set for free but you'll be in the running for one of two $15 gift certificates to Doodle Pantry! No matter what you get the cute Quirky Penguin set for free!
I'm working on more cards so I will for sure be back on Saturday for the Sweet Stop Sketch. Hopefully I'll see ya tomorrow too. Have a wonderful Thursday!
Thought of the day: Sometimes in the wind of change we find our direction.
