Hello and happy weekend everyone!!!
Today's Inspiration Challenge was a treat for me... I don't usually get to play on Sat. (or Sun. very often)... but today I did. I drew my inspiration from the calendar on the left on this site: http://www.roomservicehome.com/prodinfo.asp?number=GP212312
I was thinking of that new SU! set with the bird that looks just like that one... but I didn't have it. I did however have this Martha Stewart bird stamp and I had some great designer paper by K&Co in the old writing, posts, etc styles. So this is what I came up with. The bird is stamped with Archival Jet Black, and colored with Prisma Pencils and blended with Odor Free Mineral Spirits. I used a Very Vanilla base, matted with River Rock, and then the dp. It is a 4 x 6" card. I left room for a sentiment panel. I have a stamp I want to use that says "His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me"... in fact I stamped it and mounted it on River Rock, added a clip with a snippet of ivory lace and was going to attach it, but decided to wait until I know the exact need for this card. Right now it could go masculine or feminine... if I attached that lace it was going feminine... so I'll wait. As I mentioned yesterday... I often leave a card without a sentiment until I have the need. It's always good to have a few on hand to grab when things come up in a hurry!
I have to head to the Vet with Lucy now... she needs her shots. She'll be mad at me the rest of the day! LOL! I've been preparing her with lots of treats.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! For those of you in the southeast... don't drown in the rain today, and don't get burried in the snow that's forecast for tomorrow!
