Wow...it's Sunday already! Unfortunately, I didn't have the house all to myself for the entire day yesterday nor did I have any mojo :( I must have lost it Friday night after I made this card for the Stampin Out Alzheimers Mojo Monday sketch. Hopefully I find it again tonight or tomorrow so I can finish up some projects I'm working on!
Mojo Monday had their normal sketch challenge this week, but if you upload your card to the SOA site, you have a chance to win some Verve stamps! HURRY and get on the site if you want a chance to win and pick up some freebies (digital stamps, templates, and paper), because today is the last day of the event!! You can gain access to the site by simply donating $5 to the cause. Trust me when I tell you the freebies alone are worth over $5! There are a ton of challenges also that give you additional chances to win prizes! Just use the PayPal widget in my right sidebar --->For my card, I used PTI's new Bird Watching and Bird Watching Additions sets, Stampin' Up! DSP and CS (except for the white which is PTI), PTI button, Marvy Uchida flower punches, and Michaels white twill ribbon.
For the cute little sign, I was inspired by one of the stamps in the set that had a faux wood sign and a cute sentiment in it. There is also a faux wire stamp to "hang" the sign. My sentiment wouldn't fit in the stamp provided, so I made my own. I had some decorative edge scissors that were perfect for the sign...I love that they aren't evenly jagged. I used some of my jewelry wire to "hang" my sign on the card. I attached a brad through the wire loop but I didn't want to punch through my one layer of CS (to keep the inside of the card clean), so I trimmed the edges of the brad so they wouldn't show and adhered with a glue dot.
I first stamped the bird in gray on the main panel. I stamped it in blue on a separate piece of CS, cut it out, and adhered with dimensionals. The heart on the bird image didn't really go with my theme, so I covered it with some punched flowers. I am in LOVE with this color combo! I think it's soooo fresh and summery :O)
Hope you can play along in some of the challenges if you haven't already! This is such a great cause!
Have a wonderful, LOOOOONG Sunday!
