Well, I have to say it's Friday and I am SO glad! I am really going to be quick about this is crazy on Fridays so I'm slipping it in!

I started the card with some of my favorite Cosmo Cricket paper from the Dutch Girl line. I used a super quick and simple layout. It doesn't really need a lot of explanation! I used some Crafty Secrets stamps, which I love, but always seem to have trouble getting 'just right.' I think I did okay here. I used the large bird image and then watercolored my birds. I didn't really want anything too 'bright' if you know what I mean. I used CTMH bamboo ink for the bellies and CTMH twilight ink for the tops. I added a little glitter to the bellies, which I think turned out just right.

When I finished the image was still a little too 'bright' so I sponged chocolate ink on it which gave it a little more vintage feel. I added the sentiment and used a ribbon technique which I thought was cute. I'm not sure I like it or would do it all the time, but, hey, it's different from just your normal knot or bow, I guess.

Hope you all have a great weekend...I'm off to a candidate forum (yuck) tomorrow and then hopefully going to do some relaxing and cleaning on Sunday. I am also going to fit in some stamping time because I need more stuff to show ya'll! :)

By the way, thanks for all the sweet comments...I'm excited to have started the blog and yes, I'm sure it'll become one more addiction!
