Bloggers Challenge Nature
Today's bloggers challenge was fun. Our theme was nature. With spring in full bloom here in New England it was very easy to get inspiration. I was debating between several stamp sets, but finally settled on this PTI tree/bird set. Guess what this card reminds me of? Do you remember that awesome Dr. Seuss book 'Are you my mother?' Do you remember that cute little baby bird looking up all the time trying to figure out who was it's mother? Maybe my mind went there because mother's day is Sunday, but I thought this little bird on the ground looking up at the tree at the bigger bird, was just like the baby bird.
I used a beautiful aqua blue paper from memory box. Aren't these blues just stunning? They sell the solid, the polka dot and the small pattern all coordinated. When I stopped into Ink About It last night on my way home from a meeting, I picked up a few color families. Love them. I was a little disappointed in my Ink About It trip though. They have their big anniversary celebration this weekend so many of the displays were hidden. I was dying of curiosity to see what was behind those sheets, but since I live 40 minutes away and only get there a few times a year, I'll miss out. If any of you get to the celebration, let me know what I missed.
Do you have a good idea for a card using the theme Nature? Why not play along with us? Just create your card, take a picture, load it on your blog and add your link below. I'd love to see your creation!!
