CASology Cue Word: BIRD

The weekend flew by and Monday seemed to follow right along with it for me! What a whirlwind! After weekend company and then focusing on trip planning, I’m in a bit of a daze. A good daze, though!

Now that Tuesday has arrived, it’s time for a brand new cue word over at CASology!  This week, we’ve chosen BIRD!

I wonder what the word will make everyone think of this week?  That’s what I’m liking about this challenge, the fact that the cue word is just a starting point!  If I don’t have a bird image, it’s not a big deal at all!  I can use anything that the word makes me think of!

For my own card, my thoughts turned to the sky!  I grabbed my Hero Arts cloud background stamp and created a quick panel to pop up against my white card base.  I found an encouraging sentiment, stamped it in black and I was done!  Quick and easy!

While I didn’t use a bird image, taking the cue word literally, I used what it made me think of…the sky!  The cue word isn’t necessarily meant to make you focus on a certain image, just get your creative process going!  Believe me!  I started out wracking my brain, trying to figure out which of my bird images I was going to use and how to use them, but my mind just wouldn’t cooperate!  Thank goodness!

I hope you’ll join in at CASology this week!  We’ve had so many wonderful participants submit their clean and simple cards and, I’ve got to tell you, we’re floored by the creativity!

If you have time, stop over and leave some blog love at the design team members’ blogs!  They’d love to hear from you!  Then, feel free to play along so we can come visit you!  The deadline is Sunday, August 5, by noon (CST).
