CCM Saturday Blog Hop - In the Sky

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is anything that is normally found in the sky. I had all kinds of ideas - clouds, rain, snowflakes, the sun, rainbows, but ultimately settled on birds. We have so many varieties of birds here in East Tennessee, and I love looking out my craft room window at them. In fact, they can be quite distracting when I'm trying to get things done!

I pulled out an old favorite for this card; Free as a Bird. When it came out there was some lovely DSP that coordinated with it but, sadly, it's retired and I can't use it. (Not that I don't have three and a half packs, I just can't use it here, lol.)

I love the strips of yellow DSP over the Smoky Slate DSP, picking up the birds' colors. It's a good way to use up those little DSP pieces you can't bear to throw away!

That's my share for today. Click the Next button to jump over to Libby Fens at Libby Stamps, or the Back button to see what Mary Brown at Stamper Camper's Corner has made!

  1. Love the yellow and grey together. Birds are my favorite. Very pretty!

  2. I love the yellow strips behind the birds also. I think it makes the card. Very nice.
