It's for the birds!!

This week we are throwing our challenge "to the birds" at The Cuttlebug Spot. My card was a quickie, last minute one with going back to school, working and family coming in to town so we could go out of town so it isn't my best work - unless you consider a 7 minute card that looks like this to be pretty good work..............LOL.

Enough chatter - today is my last day with my parents before they head back to Texas so I'm gonna spend it with them!!

My card:


and Copics used:


I used the sketch over at Friday Sketcher's for inspiration and was thrilled with the fact that I could keep it simple for such a rush job!

OK, I'm uploading pics now from our visit with my brother this weekend and will post some shortly. We are off to visit Olde Towne this morning then home to make home made bread and probably cook chicken fried steak for dinner!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!


While waiting for Caitlin to get ready I threw together the slide show, ENJOY!

Love your 7-minute card! Has quite a bit going on for only 7 minutes! Great slide show!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
