Laura's Sketch #20: Chirp Up
Happy Tuesday, peeps! I went to a meeting at my up, upline's house last night (thanks, Sharon!) and came home inspired to stamp so I turned to Laura's Sketch #20, even though it was after 9:00 and I should have went to bed, because I am dragging today! Oh what we sacrifice for our stamping! lol!
Anywhooo, the large circle image made me think of a "sun" so I used some SU paper from the Good Morning Sunshine DSP and the birdie from On Board So Tweet chipboard, love that stuff! I liked the idea of the little letters peeking out from behind, and I bought some new Making Memories items from the Chloe's Closet line from Michael's a few weeks ago (you know how I love blue, and it has polka dots AND ledger paper so how could I resist!), so I broke it out and actually used it! lol! I'm pretty sure it's never going to fit in a regular size envelope with that giant pom pom trim, but oh well! Here's a close-up of the glittery part...I used Versamark, heat and stick powder, and some retired SU glitter:
Okay, off to cram some more learning into young minds as the TAKS test looms nearer...one week from today! Wish me luck! hee! hee! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
