Hi all! Have a few cards to share tonite from challenges. I get so busy with Design Team work that I slack on challenges, but they are so fun and really energize my creativeness. Tonite I made a card for the CR84FN Color Challenge:
Oh my, aren't these colors dreamy??? So Springy. I also added the CardPatterns Sketch:
And here is my card:
This card was made using goodies from April's Front Porch Kit. I have loved playing with this kit and can't wait to see Mays!
Next up is The Ribbon Reel Challenge:
Here's my card:
This card is made with Crate Paper goodies. The stamped sentiment and cardstock is Papertrey Ink. Everything else is Crate Paper - gotta love Emma's Shoppe! Such feminine papers! Many of the Emma Shoppe papers remind me of vintage sheets and fabric, LOVE IT!
A little farm news. My chicks are growing like weeds! And I have 4 chickens and 1 duck sitting on eggs at the moment...so in a few weeks there will be chicks running everywhere. I also have a blue bird box in my back yard and they have little ones now. I adore blue birds, take a look at a picture I found on the web:
Early every Spring I clean my blue bird house out (because they will not build in an old nest, they like to start from scratch). If I pay close attention I will see the little male and female bird begin work on their nest. They have already laid their first sitting of eggs this year and have baby birds, I've seen them flying back and forth feeding them. When these babes leave I'll clean the box out to get ready for the next sitting. Such a blessing to be able to look out my kitchen window and see these beauties! I highly recommend if you enjoy nature - do a little homework on blue birds and invest in a blue bird box!
