OK this is another quick post.

I am trying to keep this weekend for my family. I am sure you understand. I have just been so busy and think I need to give them all some extra attention.

Since all the stamp co. releases, I was quite busy, and then other family stuff, so we are trying to just have a KID/FAMILY focused weekend.

We had a blast at my mom’s. We always do. My mom and her Hubby cook a HUGE feast everytime we go.

 It was perfect, till we heard she is considering moving to Portugal with her husband. OMG! I can’t believe it.

I haven’t talked to her about all that just yet, but I am sure we will. Just wasn’t the right time and place. That is a HUGE deal. They said we could move there too, but um NO!

I think I need to stick put. I need MODERN medicine, and live close to one of the worlds BEST Children’s Hospital-Boston Childrens. So I am all set.

I like my modern world, and am not about roughing it. I hear all the work they have to do there and cringe.

Plus with Alexa’s need’s I need to make sure she gets the BEST education possible.

AND I think living in NH is pretty FARM GIRL-I can’t imagine literally living in a farm country! SO not me. No Target-No Thanks!

Anyway-onto the card-


This was a SIMPLE card, using the spotlight technique.

Spotlighting is when you highlight a PORTION of an image. It usually POP’s with color.

I recently bought this birdcage stamp at my LSS. I dont know WHY I had to have it, I just did. It combined SO well with my SU! Stem Shilouette’s.

On a recent trip to Michaels I found these adhesive backed glittery “tiles”. So I stamped JUST the bird from the cage onto it, and layered it on my card. PERFECT!

The main layer is also pieced onto a stamped white layer for more 3D POP!!

I just love black, white, and this pink. I added pink stickles to my flowers as well, for a touch of color.

The ribbon is a wide satin by May Arts. I love it.

All in all very SIMPLE-but so all occassion.

OK I need to run. But thanks for stopping by. I do have alot to share, but today is not the day :C

Till tomorrow.
