How Windy Is It??

It's so windy here, that I was trying to photograph my cards outside and they kept getting blown over. THAT my dear is how windy it is. I was on the interstate yesterday and could feel the wind pushing my car. THAT my dear is how windy it is. Temps are in the 70's here. And guess what? I saw a pair of blue birds on my patio this morning. One of them was inspecting my "not yet hung" wren home. Now I need to go buy a blue bird house FAST since I have some potential tenants.

So how is YOUR hump day?

Here are a few cards. Sorry if the photos aren't that great - remember - it's WINDY here. (smile)

Guess what? I finally bought a new Martha Stewart border punch. I used it on the above card. Did I get carried away? I couldn't seem to stop so I did all the edges. The papers are from Dream Street Papers' new Secret Garden. The vintage label is from Melissa Frances, and the twill is Stampin' Up!

This one uses Bella Blvd. papers and the scalloped paper is from Sassafrass Lass. The sticker is Creative Imaginations. I used the Cuttlebug for the embossing.

Above card uses Dream Street Papers' new Heartsong paper along with embossing done with the Cuttlebug. The flair button is from American Crafts.

This baby card is the result of me playing around with texture. I layered chenille, cotton trim and rick rack. Dream Street Lullaby papers and my (new) Martha Stewart border punch.

Enjoy your hump day and thanks for stopping by!
