Merry Monday Cardinal
This card is very much out of my comfort zone, because I rarely do tilted panels. They seriously challenge me into sheer frustration for some reason. I don't even know how or why I chose this design?! LOL
For this card, I added a 2nd wing to the bird and stamped some legs for him to stand on, adding some pine branches from the Winter Watercolors set. The sentiment is from SNSS and the hunter ribbon is from Pizzazz Aplenty. All papers are from Echo Park Very Merry Christmas pad, and the brown panel was embossed with a CB holly folder, while the lower panel was done with a Sizzix square lattice ef.
I just learned about the Cards From the Heart Drive yesterday, but if anyone is interested in donating some Valentine cards for kids, just click the pink heart on my side bar, or click here. There isn't much time left as they need to be received by the end of January, but if you have a few extra valentine's you'd like to donate, I'm sure they'd really make some sick children happy to receive! Please check the details carefully before sending as there are guidelines that need to be followed.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! It's a balmy 13 degrees here in PA, but I have to venture out to the post office and get these Valentines mailed, so I'll be brave and bundle up :) Stay warm!
Oh, and one last note to the news media......can we PUH-LEEZE stop analyzing whether Beyonce sang live or lip-synched the national anthem on Monday? She sang it beautifully either way and it's history, so can we move on now!! Is anyone else sick of hearing about this silly issue over and over again? LOL
Ok, I'm off my soapbox now and getting on with my day :)
