Happy Saturday! I'm super excited because my sweet sister Tina returns home tonight from her long overdue vacation. She jetted off to Buffalo, NY (our hometown) to visit friends. I missed her terribly and it will be great to see her :) Do you have any big plans?
 I really struggle making masculine cards and CAS so this card gave me a run for my money to say the least! Without boring you with details ~ I made this card for my dear hubby Scott :) While creating this card, I pulled out my collection of PTI stamps and managed to use one stamp set that never kissed an ink pad. Goal met! Not much to chat about ~ pretty CAS. For color inspiration, I played along with The Play Date Cafe challenge #94:
Here are a few pictures of a Quail family wandering around my back yard. The Momma made her nest in one of my succulent pots but before I could photograph them in the pot, they were on their way. If you look closely, you are able to see the little feather on the top of their head! So cute don't you think?
 This little guy managed to grab a cricket that was hopping around!
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you have a great day! I'll be back tomorrow with an all new CR84FN Color Challenge. Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI
Dies & Machine: PTI, Spellbinders, Vagabond
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye
