Happiness is...

I just discovered Inspiration Avenue less than 24 hours ago. They have weekly challenges that sound tempting and so I decided to join. Since they close on Sundays at 12:00 EST I knew that I have to post by tonight - and my design is clean and simple, the way I like it best. It's a card I think cat lovers would like.


I sprayed the background with Glimmer Mist in sweet clover and patina, then stamped the birds at the birdbath (Inkadinkado) with Distress Ink black soot.. The cats (Inkadinkado) were stamped on cardstock that I had inked with Distress Ink in wild honey. Finally I tyed the words, inked the paper with Distress Ink in mustard seed and shabby shutters and ahered to the card with foam tape.

Fast and simple. A fun challenge.

Ooooh, I love it! Reminds me of my two kitties sitting at the window together, chattering about the birds. Beautifully done!

Somehow or other, Lisa didn't copy the link to your blog correctly. But I knew I could find you (thank goodness). I'm glad you made it to IA. It's a fun challenge each week. Of course I'm partial to your entry, but I suspect you can imagine why (grin). And I love how you explained your process, too. Welcome to IA. I hope there are many more.
