A Bird & His Song

Happy Hellos Everyone:

What a day...What a day...What a day...All kinds of things were going on and this evening was no different. You know who it can be when you make plans. Well, this evening was no different. I planned to come home and unwine a littel before heading to the the craft room to complete a card for a challenge. To put it mildly, that didn't happen. My plans went down the drain. It's been raining all day in Baltimore and is expected to continue into the morning. It appears as though we're experiencing our April showers in March and all at once. When I arrived home, I discovered the basement was flooded and yes, my craft room is located in the basement. Fortunately, I didn't have much on the floor. However, I wasn't able to work in the craft room because all the electrical cords were submerged in water. Hopefully, all will be try by tomorrow this time.

Enough of that... I completed a card last night that I planned to share it with you earlier today. However, time didn't permit me to post this morning. I made this card for the challenge over at CR84FN. I like it and I hope you like it to.

Just below is the color palette provided by CR84FN...


...and this is what I created...






I hope you like what you see and I hope it inspires you too. If you're wondering what I used to create this springy card, well, wonder no more. I used SU cardstock, My Mind's Eye designer paper, Tim Holtz's die, Tim Holtz's distressing inks, Stickle: Rock Candy,Spellbinder circle and scallop dies, Verve sentiment stamp, ribbon, button, and pearls.

Again, I hope you like what you've and were able to draw some inspiration too. Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.
