For the birds... 55

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, August 1, 2010 @ 9:38 PM | ,

Hi There! After taking care of necessary business such as grocery shopping, unpacking & working out, I had the chance to play with a few new goodies :)

After being away for a week, it is challenging for me to get into the swing of things & I was trying to find my creative MOJO! I purchased this darling bird themed stamp set by My Cute Stamps while shopping at CHA & some PTI wool felt. Wanting to use BOTH, I played along with the current embellishmagazine.com color challenge which is to also feature birds on your creation!

Bright, bold colors are typically not my thing but I have to admit, I do like the hot pink PTI felt flower when paired with a lighter pink. What do you think?

That's all I have for tonight - it's off to work before the sun rises for me tomorrow morning... Thanks for looking! Be Sweet :)
