You brighten my day

Happy Sunday morning my friends! Did you know that there is a sale going on over at The Craft's Meow! From now through Tuesday, April 5th you'll get 20% off your entire purchase. Just enter the code AprilShowers at checkout. Lisa has also added the three wee stamp sets designed by Claire Brennan of Waltzingmouse Stamps to the store, so you can now purchase them with or without the kits. And there is always Little Frieda there as well. :) I used Little Frieda & Lulu mischief on my card today. It's a complete scene all in one stamp but for this card I chose to put the focus on Frieda and her birdie friend by cropping it into a circle. Makes for a pretty versatile stamp, don'tcha think? ;) I was also playing around with a color combo that's not one I use much and I really like how the shots of yellow tie back to the sentiment. I don't know why but something about these colors makes me think of a country kitchen and I can totally picture Frieda there. Okey dokey, I'm off to work once again... don't forget that there is still time to get entered into the Sweet November candies below. Winners will be announced tomorrow! Toodles! Supply list: cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It paper- Fancy Pants (black), October Afternoon (red), American Crafts (yellow) stamps- The Craft's Meow (Little Frieda & Lulu mischief), Hero Arts (sentiment) ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox creamy brown Prima flowers Kaiser Craft pearls buttons ribbon Fiskars border punch October Afternoon journaling card Copic markers: skin- E000, E00, E11, R00, R20 hair- E07, E09, E19, E18, YR14 everything else- Y13, Y15, Y18, Y17, C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, R24, R27, E19, E30, E31, E35, E40, E41, 0, B0000, B000

Hi Amy. This is so adorable! I wouldn't think to put yellow and red together, but it so works in this case. It does look like she is in a country kitchen. She is very sweet with her yellow birdie. It kind of also reminds of Kirt from Glee.. :O) Have a super Sunday and a great day at work. Hugs, Lisa
