I have to admit I’m feeling a bit jealous of this teddy. Doesn’t sitting in the sun and taking a little snooze look great? Although we have had a mild winter, I am ready to leave it behind for longer, warmer days.
I was happy to have some free time this week to make a card that wasn’t for a design team. I decided to make a birthday card for a male for my stash using a never-been-inked stamp from Lili of the Valley. (I love LOTV stamps!) It also gave me the chance to play around with a new technique. I used Annika’s tutorial on creating cloud backgrounds. I love the way the sky looks.
Since it’s Saturday, it is also time for Marcea’s Music Saves My Soul. It’s sort of a mini-musical blog hop were you have the opportunity to share a song/video and then hop around to see what others are sharing. Since I am waiting (im)patiently for summer, I thought I would share a song that not only makes me dance but makes me think of summer and puts a smile on my face. If you would like to play along, stop by Marcea’s blog to link up your musical pick.
Have a fabulous weekend! Thank you for stopping by!
