Sunshine…a Hammock…Birds Singing…Relax!

Relax blk

The birds are singing, the sun is shining… we do have a hammock, BUT so far it’s only 57 degrees! Promising to get mid-60’s though and maybe even 70 tomorrow! Woohoo!

I had a Bluebird and an Oriole flitting around the yard this week! So pretty.

The WT Challenge on Splitcoast today is to use birds. The ODBD Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop this week is featuring For the Love of ODBD Spellbinder's Compatible stamp sets!

WT374 Relax

For my card I used a word from one of the new releases, Happy Retirement, and an older set that I designed, Bird & Butterfly Labels. This set matches Spellbinders Labels 18, all cut in my Grand Calibur. DP is Bo Bunny Ambrosia.

While still in the die, I sponged Ranger Distress ink, Wild Honey, Broken China, Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet. I added dots onto the flowers with a white gel pen then a fine tip marker.

The bow was done on my Becca Peg Bow Maker!

Well, I’ve got 2 loads of laundry ready to hang on the line… better get busy!

Thanks for stopping!
