A very Wet Wednesday

. . .I say that because, it has been raining all day here in Columbus. Thankfully, that's given us an opportunity to really focus on school and get a few things done around the house. My mom lives with us, but had to leave today to spend some time with my Grandpa. I told you he had surgery recently, but he hasn't been doing as well as they had hoped. To keep my mind off of that, I have a couple of cards to show you today.

My first card was made with my bff, Christi, in mind. Even though thousands of miles separate us, we still manage to communicate everyday. This was made with a new Clear Dollar Stamps release called Sassy & Fabulous. I used the faux leather techniqe, and then hand stitched around the outside. It was very time consuming, but very worth it. I love the way it looks, and I know Christi won't just throw it away after she's read it, hehe ;)

After making my little card from yesterday with Laurie's adorable little digi called Happy Bird, I had to go buy these little Branch Birds! Aren't they just adorable?! The image reminds me of my son. He is definitely his own person, and I love that about him. I had so much fun coloring this image and embellishing it. I used some new Fine Strawberry & Fine Sage Flower Soft from Clear Dollar Stamps. I love that stuff! It works beautifully! I'm entering it in the Digital Tuesday Challenge, because the challenge is Piercing.
