That's what Friends are For!
Hello my friends! I'm sorry I have been a little slow in my posts lately but I have a lot going on and I have just not had the time to give it! Today I wanted to share a card I made for this week's Sketch Saturday and also Our Daily Bread's Shining the Light Challenge, to use a sentiment only for your stamping. The sketch called for that little triangle in the upper left corner of the main panel, so I cut the birds out of the designer paper because I thought the birdies went perfectly with the sentiment I chose. This sentiment is one of Our Daily Bread designs new stamps this month from the Blessings Collection called "Friends". Loving these single stamps! Check out all the new collections Kelley has introduced!
We have a pair of Cardinals nesting in our bush just next to our front steps. There are eggs in the nest and mom and dad are both attentively watching it. I'm excited to watch the babies hatch and grow and hope nothing happens to them since they are a little exposed! I guess I just had to use this part of the Websters pages dp because of them! My grandkids will be here all next week and I'm hoping they might see some babies!
