Fox & Friends: whoo-la-la!


Happy Tuesday! How did your week start off? I had pretty good day, especially considering I'd only had 4 hours of sleep. Sometimes those days don't go well! ha!


I made this card Sunday for the Embellish challenge. I just went back to link it and noticed it said it had to have borders! Schwooo! I just happen to have one. I must start reading better! lol! I wanted to play because the colors really grabbed me, so springy and fresh! I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one out there who is ready for spring! Don't you love that green crochet flower?! I finally broke down and used one of my precious hand-crocheted flower from Clouds. Love that girl, thank you!! Oh, and that circle wood grain piece came was leftover from this card. Waste not, want not, right?!


Okay, better head out. I need to stop and get some yams. Bet ya don't hear that every day?! We are reading an African folktale and it has yams in it. I'm pretty sure the kids won't know what yams are...


Hope you have a great day! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

I love all the different ways you are using fox & friends. I have to struggle to not make the images all into kid cards.
You worked that color combo and the embellishments are super.

haha, this is why I said in my post last week that my card had an "Angie feel" to it - here are that owl and that Woodgrain background right there!

Love your use of the pretty Spring colors!
