DT card for Craft Us Crazy

Thursday begins our 17th Challenge at Craft Us Crazy. We would love to have you join us. We are looking for creations that say "Goodbye to Summer (summer themed) and/or School themed. My card is full of birdies who seem to be saying "Goodbye to Summer" in their cute little tweet voices. LOL It's actually still summer here in southern California. I am so looking forward to Fall & Winter. You can see from my blog design how much I adore sweet little birdies. They always make me smile. I also love, love, love vintage images & anything by Crafty Secrets screams "vintage".

I followed this sketch from Sketch Saturday. Can you see the little brass staples I added for the 3 vertical lines on each side at the bottom. My card was already so 'busy' that I didn't want to add more ribbon or baker's twine so I thought the staples would fit well.

I used Crafty Secrets Birds & Blossoms paper. It's so colorful & chockful of images for your crafting needs. I added acetate butterflies & flowers from K & Co. and seam binding from Wild Orchid Crafts. The other embellies are from my stash. The back layer of DP is from Bearly Mine Designs.

Just a few days left.......

Our Craft Us Crazy challenge blog is nearing the end of our 16th challenge. You still have 2 days to get your creations entered. We would love to see your Autumn Colors and/or Favorite Embellishments. It would be so difficult for me to chose my favorite embellishments. I love ALL of my embellies. LOL It's 'almost' like choosing your favorite child or grandchild. LOL

I've had some health issues for the past month so no card to show you but I'm hoping to create something this week. I'm working on a counted cross-stitch wedding sampler for my niece so that's taking up my evenings & fulfilling my need to craft. I've also been spending some time browsing crafting blogs. You can check out my lists on both of my sidebars for some AMAZING talent out there. OMGosh! So much creativity! And if you haven't visited Pinterest amazing creativity. I just boggles my mind! LOL

I hope you're having a blessed week. Until next blessed!
