Off to the mailbox
A friend of my parents just had knee surgery. I made this card as some happy mail for him. His name is Bliss. Imagine having your mother name you Bliss she gave birth. What a wonderful name to go through life with!
Anyway, Bliss loves to spend time in his yard so I thought the little bird in the pear tree would bring a bit of nature indoors as he recuperates. The paper is from Basic Grey's Pyrus 6x6 paper pad. The colors are wonderful for fall. I'm also adding this easel card to the gallery at Big Picture Classes for their fall festival. Check out this great free event!
I found out about this from Nichol Magourik's blog. Each day including weekends from September 4 through the 17th is a new big idea with a challenge and prizes. Registration is free. Even if you don't have time to do this now, if you register, the lessons will be in your account so you can look at them later.
One little hint: the videos are in the Archives tab which is the last one on the right after you log in. I think this is a strange place to put the content of a class but hey, it's free!
Also, I have some Stampin' Up! Christmas stamp sets for sale:
A Cute Christmas (Stampin’ Up! clear) $10
Christmas Punch (this set was a hostess level 2 set and has hardly been used) $12
Season of Simple Grace (nativity set) $14
Please e-mail me if you are interested.
Thanks for stopping by today!
