a little note of hi

there's lots of fun happening at the alley way stamps blog today! so i decided to get in on the action! :)
although, full disclosure: i was totally feeling crafty today, and i made two cards and a layout...but i am not in love with any of them! lol! has that ever happened to you? i was all into getting inky, just nothing panned out how i imagined! oh well! :)

the first card i made for the be-inspired challenge and the stampy sunday linky party at the alley way stamps, was of course inspired by the challenge photo:

and here's the card:

i misted the background of the card with some teal heidi swapp color shine (love!). then i added some green 'grass' washi and some yellow 'sun' washi! the birds are from the lighter than air stamp set, and the sentiment and 'speech bubble' is from the cover ups stamp set! :)

the birds and the bubble are popped up for dimension. 
while i was at it...and since i was already not in love with the card, i decided to add a heart and some sparkle! lol! so i added some stickles to the birds wings and the heart. 

just a simple card to brighten someone's day, hopefully! :)
*i have one more card to share for these same fun happenings! :) 
stay tuned! :)


  1. I LOVE this! The misted sky, taped grass and adorable birds (might just be my fave TAWS image) are fabulous. While I understand what you mean about things not working like you plan in your mind, but this is wonderful so I'd say it worked! ;)

  2. What a fun use of Washi - a fun chevron field for those cute birds! Thanks for joining us at The Alley Way Stamps BE inspired challenge!

  3. Such a fun card! Love how you used washi to create some grass and the sun! Thanks for joining the TAWS BE Inspired challenge!


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
