Cheep Talk

My Customer Appreciate post will stay at the top for a while, so remember to scroll down for the current post.

For some reason, I’ve gotten out of my routine…get up…post to my Blog…get ready for the day.  Today is one of the few days that I have had recently that I didn’t NEED to get some stamped thing DONE.  It actually feels pretty good!  But, I know you are waiting for a new creation…so I won’t disappoint you.  Actually, I’ve had this card done and it has been sitting in my files to post.  It has been SO long, but I think it was a card I did when playing some challenges with Lisa and Mary!  I held it for a while thinking I might submit it to a magazine, but don’t think I will.

I started with a base card of Chocolate Chip and added a layer of Tangerine Tango that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Texturz Swirl from Backgrounds 1.  I stamped the flower on a stripe of Old Olive and adhered it to the Tangerine Tango.  Then I used my markers to ink up the branch in Chocolate Chip and Old Olive and stamped on Whisper White.  And the bird I inked with Tangerine Tango, Summer Sun and Chocolate Chip for the legs.  I added You’ve Got A Friend in Me in Tangerine Tango under the stem.  This was layered onto Chocolate Chip.  I guess I was thinking of the Baltimore Orioles when I made an orange bird…I remember I was fascinated with them when I was a kid!

Of course, I pulled out my Big Shot again with a scrap of Urban Garden Designer Paper and used the Scalop Circles #2 die to cut the 1/2 circle I placed behind the focal images.  I stamped the flower in Tangerine Tango and small leaves with Old Olive on Whisper White and cut them out.  Finally I added a Filigree mini brad to the center and adhered it onto the base card.  Whimsical and fun, I think!

Hope you have a great week.  I do need to stamp some 50th Anniversary favors and a gift certificate for the 50th Anniversary party dinner on Friday evening.  My son and his girlfriend are coming in Thursday night, so I have to be done with everything by then!
