Free Friday!

I love Fridays! I give myself the day off- no housework, no laundry, no dinner plans. Just do what I want. Today, hubby off on a business appointment, leaving me with no guilt to play the morning away!

This card is a bit different for me. I typically don't do chipboard, but after seeing the fun things that can be done with it, I opted to try something new. I covered this heart in pink DP, then added lots of "sugary" glitter to it. The bird is from Inkadinkado that I cut out. All pieces are added with foam tape for dimension! I made the flower using seam binding tape that I did a loose stitch and pulled tight, then sewed the ends together making a circle. Quick and easy! Love to make these new flowers (between this type and the tissue paper flowers, my table is covered in blooms!!!)

I am entering this card in a few challenges:
Stamping Sisters in Christ #39: make a joyful noise or something showing music. What better way to celebrate the new spring than to listen to the birds chirping. My youngest wanted to do bird feeders this year and it has been a pleasure to see all of different birds that eat from the feeder. But boy to they make a mess!! seeds are everywhere- find myself yelling at them just like I do the kiddos about eating what is here before giving them more! yikes!

Papertake weekly: say it with flowers. Made my own and the bird has flowers on her belly!
Tuesday Morning Sketches: #46: use your fave color combo and glitter. I love PINK and GREEN together!
Charisma Cardz: #20 3D- the bird and saying on 3d foam tape, then twine and flower add texture and dimension
Stamp Something Challenge: use 2 of something. they are celebrating their 2nd birthday. I have 2 kinds of hemp, 2 types of flowers (stamp and made) and 2 types of curves- apron punch and the heart which add softness to the card with the other hard lines
Stamping 411: loose interpretation of the #151 sketch this week9 use a shape on the front and I used a heart.

Thanks for stopping over today, have a great weekend and enjoy the spring!
