Bonjour


Hi there! I hope everyone in the East Coast is doing well. We had about 15 inches of snow where we live, but it wasn't so bad. We had no power outages and other than shoveling the snow up front, we're pretty much just resting indoors today. It's nice and sunny now and I had plenty of time to get inky. 

I found two great challenges that I wanted to join in. The first one is The Shabby Tea Room 152 and the other is Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger - Cross My Heart

  

It was a wonderful coincidence that they both had the same color combination and flowers on their inspiration photos. So I grabbed my Waltzingmouse Stamps and started to make this...

I apologize for the photos today. I usually always compare what my images look like on my computer as well as my tablet. The colors show off the same as the original on my tablet but seems to be a little washed off here on my computer.


Anyway, for my background, I stamped the Birch Trees from Clean and Simple Stamps above and heat embossed Chicken Wire from WMS on the bottom. I separated the two by tying a gray ribbon around my card.


 Then I used French Country and stamped sentiment and rooster image on the label from the same set. I also stamped the different flower images from the set, colored them in with copics and hand cut each one. It was a little tedious, but I knew it would be worth it in the end. :)

The key is how you hold your scissors. You should always use your thumb and ring finger when cutting. It's how surgeons hold their scissors so that it's more stable. :) Because your ring finger and pinky provide the base that keeps your scissors steady. Did that make sense? :) lol. 

Anyway, I hope you like my card for today. Maybe I can try and make cut files for these images...hmmm that should be interesting. :) Well, that's it for me! Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of our weekend!
