how r u...

Hey friends!!  Well the boys made it through the first few days of school.  It was a bit of a rocky start for my 11th grader.  His classes kept getting changed and he was pulled out of a class that he really wanted to be in, but thankfully they were able to re-arrange his schedule and he is back in the class he had been pulled out of... all's well that ends well!   Things went better for my 3rd grader (yes... I have one in high school and one is elementary school!) even though he doesn't have any of his friends in his class.  Anywhoo... I had some time this afternoon and made a card for a few challenges:  ColourQ, Freshly Made Sketches, Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (stamp and die/punch) and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (use a stamp).  Pulled out a couple of favorite Stampin Up! set (Kinda Eclectic and Four Feathers) to create my card.  I stamped the sun image from Kinda Eclectic in PTI's Lavender Moon on a piece of white cardstock that I die cut with the largest die in the AJVD Polka Dot Backdrop die set.  The feathers were stamped in Bravo Burgundy (SU!) and Pansy Purple (Close to My Heart) and die cut with the matching SU! Feathers Framelits dies.  After adhering the feather together and attaching them to the main panel.  I brought in the yellow color with some baker's twine tied in a bow and attached to the feathers.  The sentiment from Altenew Label Love was stamped in black, trimmed out and popped up on the panel.  Easy peasy... lemon squeasy!  Realized that this will also work for the current Word Art Wednesday challenge... they are celebrating their 200th challenge with lots of prizes.  Make sure you check it out!


Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white, Simon Says Stamp fog; Stamps:  Stampin Up! and Altenew; Dies:  Stampin Up! and A Jillian Vance Design; My Mind's Eye baker's twine; Inks:  Stampin Up!, Close to My Heart, PTI and Memento
