Cardinal Thank You

I'd like to thank MariLynn (Mississippi McGiver) for a fabulous tutorial on making birds out of punches. She was also responsible for the MMTPT68 Challenge this week. Since her teapot had cardinals on it, I thought it only fair to use her tutorial which I have saved for a LONG time!

The WT today was to make a thank you card, regarding what we are thankful for.... so this is really a multiple. I am thankful for RED (of course), and cardinals, and birds in general, but this is specifically for my mom, who also loves cardinals. I am so thankful for her.....the best Mom you could ask for, and the best FRIEND you could hope to have. I send her cards for all sorts of reasons, but this is the perfect reason to send one.....I am so thankful to have HER.

Thanks for looking. Hugs to you all.

Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #16

The Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge this week comes to us from Pottery Barn. Clean, simple lines, lots of white, and touches of brown and.... dare I say it? RED!

Of course I had to keep the clean lines and the white on white, but I had to add a little of my signature color too.

Below is my card for the DDIC. I hope you can see that there is the tiniest bit of pattern in the
wallpaper behind the couch. I really wanted to have a RED couch too, but it just didn't work. Please join us in the DDIC this week. Post your card or project with DDIC16 in the keyword so we can enjoy it. Please also visit the rest of the Design Team in my sidebar to see what they have done with this challenge!
