For the Birds

Happy Saturday! Fortunately it was a short work week, since I took Monday off, and I'm officially on the countdown to retirement... six months - YAY! I visited Mo's shop and simply fell in love with this new image. Elaine is the GDT for October and she came up with this week's theme of "patchwork". What a fun challenge - I always make "tied" quilts, so followed that theme here. Rumaged through my stash and found the vellum, softening the quilt a bit behind my copic colored image. I had a bunch of snowflakes cut also, but I HAD to just stop, as it was getting VERY busy :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

RECIPE:Mo Manning-image; kaisecraft, authentique-DP; bazzill CS; DMC-floss; CP-snowflake charm; cuttlebug-embossing; vellum; copic sketch markers.

Hi Wendy what a beautiful card, I just love your colours and you have a great eye for details.
I popped over to thank you for the lovely comment on my blog about the wedding invites I made. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and in hindsight I think I must have been mad for offering! I am just a teeny bit pleased with myself though!

Hi Wendy, thanks so much for visiting my blog & leaving such a lovely comment!
Your coloring is quite stunning, you must have a bazillion copics (lol). You use a lot of the same ones that I do, but you have many more than I do!

Kathlene said...

Didn't realize I hadn't publicly oooooh'd and aahhhh'd over your beautiful card because it deserves that and so much more. There are so many things to love about it--the beautiful coloring, the embossed velum element, the tied quilt treatment over the perfect patchwork. Just gorgeous! xoxo

Cheryl said...
