So Thoughtful

Happy Friday!! Big plans for the weekend? I'm driving to Salina, KS to attend my first ever Winter Round Up. It should be fun - lots of girls, projects, swaps, food, games & prizes! One of the items we can bring is a card to swap. If we wanted to participate we had to create 60! That's a lot to me - especially since most of my cards have lots of layers and pattern papers! So the tricky part was to come up with a design that I'd have enough supplies for. Here's what I came up with:
I used two new stamp sets from TAC - Beautiful Day and You are. To color the birds, I used my Dove Blender pen and ink pads - it gives it a watercolor look. The pattern paper is from the Gentle Beginnings collection. The flower is from a punch and I used scrapper's floss through the buttons. I love how I can "curl" the scrapper's floss and it will retain it's shape. Coloring the birds and curling the floss definitely took the longest. My fingers are still a little sore!

That's all for me today! Since I won't be around this weekend, I won't be posting again until Monday. I hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for looking!!

This turned out great! Have fun at the Winter Round up! I bet you'll have a blast! I have yet to figure out how to get that floss to curl. Did you wrap it around something?
