I think it just may finally be spring here in the DC area! Mother Nature seemed a bit uncertain as to what season she wanted to do. Pez and I spent the morning doing our best to weed the front flower beds - we are being over-run by some kind of insistent ground cover UGH! Hoping to mulch tomorrow to see if I can keep it at bay. I have been thoroughly enjoying being able to hang out with friends and neighbors on the front porch in the afternoons after school. I have been extremely lucky - there are several other neighbors with girls the same age as Hollyn and the kids all love each other and so do the moms! Yesterday school was out for a teacher work day so we gathered the girls (5 in all) got ice cream and then did homemade avocado face masks - so cute!
I am posting my first OFFICIAL Bitten By the Bug challenge project. The challenge is perfectly timed - in celebration of Spring we are asking you to make something using birds. I have a second gift tag for you to add to my stash:
Once again I designed the whole thing in Design Space, once I was happy with it I picked my papers and hit cut! Another Studio G stamp sentiment finished it off. (Anyone here still remember the Pezabling from my old store? That's the 3 pink flecked square embellishments at the top.)
Isn't the little bird and banner sweet? I used the following cartridges:
- Banner/bird - Birthday Bash
- Tag base - Christmas Kitsch
- Border - Elegant Edges
As always, I inked my edges with Tsukineko tear drop inks - it really gives everything a "finished" look.
I hope you join us and submit a bird project! Just CLICK HERE for BBTB.
