Cardinals

On a gorgeous sunny day like this I just had to paint some cardinals. I only wish we had them in our part of the world. I saw my first ones at my Sister`s when she lived in Michigan. They are stunning. Unfortunately here in the Maritimes we do not have them as visitors. So, woe is me. I must settle for stamps with cardinals.

I was blog surfing and I found this layout on Sharon Johnson`s No Time to Stamp. I loved it so here is my version. Again, another simple card to put together. I used Twinkling H2Os and gold embossing powder to add a little zing. The stamp is Impression Obsession for the cardinals and Inkadinkado for the sentiment. I backed the cardinals with glossy gold paper and used a gold and chiffon ribbon I purchased at Michaels.

Love the way this card turned out. It is a great one to make multiples of. Guess its time to get a move on some housework....ugh hate how that gets in the way of living. I would like to push a button and have it all done. That`s my dream and I`m sticking to it.

Talk later
