An "All Felt Up" Entry ... Hey, I Don't Write 'Em, I Just Repeat 'Em

Pin It

So today, I decided to revisit some of my older CD's. I found an old "Simon & Garfunkle" CD and wow! there's some really great, meaningful songs on this CD. But, I was wondering: Did Parsley save Rosemary in time?

Today's card project was created for Allison's "Suggestive Sunday" blog challenge. This week, Allison challenged us to create a paper project using felt. Well, it took days, but I finally managed to do so ... but my studio looks like Barney exploded!

I ran my background paper through the Cuttlebug with an inked A2 folder, then applied my hand-drawn felt bird. I cut out the hearts using the smallest Classic Heart die, then I cut out the wing and the li'l birdy-eye free-hand. And astonishingly, it still looks like a bird!

I stamped my CTMH sentiment, available HERE, with Staz-On ink, and stamped three egg tags with the same ink. I mounted the sentiment on foam dimensionals and attached the tags to a ball chain strung through a loopy eyelet.

On an entirely different note, check out the Y.OU K.NOW Y.OU R.OCK blog to see the winning "Rock the Cover" card, and get all the deets on our August challenge.

Finally, I wanted to share with you this fantastic weight loss tip: Eat naked in front of a full-length mirror.

Very cool! The bird and the egg tags and that sentiment are all perfect. I would not have thought about putting a square sentiment on an oval, but it looks really nice.
Good job with Felting.

Hi Deb love your card and you are just a total hoot. Hope you have a great weekend. OH BTW you need to put eyes, ears and a long tail on those wooden thingys in your photo because they would then look like cut little

heeheehee. Did Parsley... you funny. I've been missing you! Looks like everybody is getting all felt up and I'm at home alone, LOL. This card is too sweet. Love the cuttlebug leaves & your wing and eye are perfection. So cute and cuddly that it calls for c'ugs (sounds gross but they are really just smooshy, hehe) ;O)
