Spring Is Sprung, the Grass is Rizz ...

Pin It

I wonder where the butterflies birdies is?

Happy Thursday all and one ... and speakin' of birds, happy "Alfred Hitchcock Day!" If I were you, I'd be v-e-r-y careful today ... especially around birds.

ONward H-C-M's:

Today's card project was created for SCS's "Clean and Simple" challenge, CAS05. This time up, it's a color challenge: use blue and green in your clean and simple card creation. For all the challenge deets, clicky HERE. To go straight to the Clean and Simple card gallery, clicky HERE. To view the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo.

I stamped my notebook page and the envelope with Close to My Heart's "Outdoor Denim" dye ink (available HERE), cut them out, and adhered them to my card base.

My $1.00 sentiment stamp also came with images of grass and a bee, but I masked those out and stamped just the phrase.

I punched out and adhered seven l'il flutterbies, mounted my sentiment on dimensionals, and finis! So easy, even I a child could do it! Refer to my supply list, below, for additional product info.

So, last night, Sheila and I decided to do some (mostly), window shopping at the Wellington Green mall.

"May I try on that dress in the window?" Sheila asked the sales associate at a designer boutique.

"Go ahead," the clerk replied. "Maybe it'll attract some business."

She didn't. Dress in the window ... or buy the dress. Why? 'Cuz we're broke Recessionestas!
