Bonus Day Off

I would just like to take this time to thank Dr. Martin Luther King for providing us with a reason to have this freezing cold day off!  I'm thinking a hot breakfast and some crafty time while staying warm wrapped in my bathrobe might be how this day is gonna go.  ;)  Cass has the first of her last 4 road lessons today before she can make the appointment for her driver's license. Watch out, residents of Massachusetts.  LOL

I have fallen.  Madly.  Deeply.  Severely.  I've fallen in love with the digi images from A Day for Daisies.  I keep trying NOT to fall in love with new stamp companies - I'm on a budget, and being on Design Teams for several of my favorite digi stamp companies has really been a wonderful opportunity to receive and create with images that I adore.  But I can't help it - between Saturated Canary and A Day for Daisies, I've been sucked in and I just keep using "Bill Me Later."  ROFL  

So for today, I have a card for the:

HOW stinkin' cute is this new character? She's called "Birdie Birdie" and she was in the January Club Kit, which I just had to have.  LOL  I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, DP is from Stampin' Up! Buttons are from foof-a-la.  Sentiment is from Beyond the Fringe.

Next is something new for me - an arch - that I created for the following challenges:


I printed the arch on some heavy cardstock, cut it out and dragged it through several different ink pads, all shades of brown.  I then spritzed it with Log Cabin Smooch Spritz.  The gorgeous image is from A Day for Daisies - LOVE the birds in her hair.  I printed it on Kraft cardstock, colored with Prismacolor markers and fussy-cut her out.  The sentiment is a new digi image from CS Designs.  I am also on the DT for the Cheerful Stamp Pad, and this arch was my creation for this week's challenge, which is "Birds/Feathers."  Head on over to check it out and link up!

Today is also my day to post over at the Just Some Lines blog.  Here's what I posted for today, using one of the new images called "Wanda the Witch - Safe Landing":

DP is from My Mind's Eye, digi sentiment is from Scrapalicious Times Sentiments.
Have a great day, my friends, stay warm!  Peace.
