I have been asked by a co-worker to make a stack of cards. I used this week's Midnight Madness sketch for my layout. Both the duck image and the "Thank You" came from Hambo Stamps (I love their pigs). I found this paper in my stash and I think I bought it recently. Where did I buy it? I sure can't remember now. I think it might have been Wisconsin Craft Market??? I used stickles and glossy accents to help the image pop a bit. I was not fond of the stitching part. I don't sew. I HATE sewing. I don't own a sewing machine. I poked holes in the paper and then used embroidery floss to sew it. I learned the hard way that I added way too many holes!! It took too long to sew. No matter, I like the card. It brings a smile to my face.
Okay, now you are wondering why there is a bird on my head. Zena, our cockatiel was flying around the room and needed a place to land. Obviously she thought my head was a good spot. This is strange on many levels. The bird has bonded with my hubby and doesn't go to me unless she is desperate. Secondly, she usually flies to something other than my head. The kids thought it was funny so I took a picture.
Thanks for stopping by!
