My best friend...

Mornin' friends! 

Ugh, there is a forest fire blazing up lake... nothing that is threatening us thank goodness but the smoke has been so bad since Friday that it makes being outside just miserable. Seriously, our air quality is currently listed as hazardous which means stay indoors or wear a mask if you have to go out for any length of time. I'm praying for a down pour of rain to help with the situation sooner rather than later... fingers crossed.

As for my card today, I'm playing along in the current A Day for Daisies challenge to 'Add a Feather'. At first I didn't think I would be able to join in on this challenge because I don't have any real feathers. But then I came across this wood veneer feather that I must have gotten in a kit at some point and I was set. All I had to do was find the right digi stamp to go with it. Are you surprised it is an image that doesn't have a single bird in sight? I am, LOL! But when I saw Buddy these two cute pals just spoke to me. That is when the idea to choose a mish mash of embellishments mimicking the "treasures" that might be found in a little boy's pockets came to me. I think it works quite well too because I love how this card turned out, it is definitely a new fave of mine.  ;)

Ta Ta for now!  :)
