CASology FLY

CASology FLY
It's Tuesday and time for a new cue word over on the CASology challenge blog!  We're FLYing this week with Rubber Dance Stamps as our sponsor! Week 255 - Fly I used one of the pretty birds from the A Little Birdie... set to create a simple thank you design.  I used white watercolor paper and splattered brown watercolor paint on it to create a simple neutral colored background.  Once dried, I stamped the bird image in black ink.  I kept things very clean and simple by not coloring the image at all!  The sentiment (from the Just A Note set) was stamped beside the bird in black and then three clear round drops were added as embellishments to add a little interest and dimension.  The assembled main panel was framed with black cardstock before being attached to the white card base using foam adhesive. I hope you'll take a little time this week to visit the design team member and guest designer blogs and leave a little blog love for them!  They've created yet another round of fantastic inspiration!

Unity Friends with Flair


Every now and then I need a little reminder to keep my chin up.  We all have those days (or weeks...or months) when life just isn't the most enjoyable due to circumstances, etc.  It's good to remember that just because this moment or this day isn't looking so bright, that doesn't mean that the next moment or the next day has to be the same.  Each day holds out its own unique opportunities and I want to be looking for them and taking advantage of them!

I love this sentiment from Unity's April 2012 Kit of the Month!  I'm sharing this card over on Unity's Friday Friends with Flair link up party!  If you've got some Unity stamps handy, create a little something and join in the fun today!


I am also entering this into Challenge #32 over at Freshly Made Sketches!  Here is this week's sketch:
