Just Saying Hello

Good Morning Everyone. I hope you had a nice weekend and a wonderful Easter. We had lovely weather, it was a perfect day for Sunrise Service at Sea World which has become a tradition for us and a perfect day for an egg hunt in the park for the kids. Here's a super easy card I made with The Cutting Cafe House Shaped Template and The All Occasion Circle Word Set 3 also from The Cutting Cafe . I love shaped cards but always thought they were something other people did. Regina over at The Cutting Cafe has made it so easy with all of the layers that go together so perfectly. I used craft ink to make a faux wood finish on the cardstock and added THAT Stampin' Up bird punch that I just HAD to have but after getting it, I asked myself...WHY...what was I thinking! Here is the recipe---
Card Size: Measures 5.5 x 4
Template: Cutting Cafe-House Shaped Card
Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop
Sentiment: Cutting Cafe-All Occasion Circle Word Set 3
Punch: Stampin Up-2 Step Bird Punch
Accessories: Craft Ink, Black Gel Pen, Foam Pop Dots

We're excited over at The Cutting Cafe, Regina has added a Video Team to our Design Team. I don't know about you but it helps me when I can SEE a project being made rather than just reading about it. Help me welcome the newest members---
There have been several videos already added so...check it out!

Thanks for stopping by...Have a great day! I'll see you, when I see you!

And now an update...The Space Shuttle Discovery just blasted off for the mission to the International Space Station...AWESOME! We are about 50 miles away, not only could we SEE it from the comfort of our home but for the first time EVER...we FELT it. I have seen many space lift offs in my days of living in Florida but none can even compare to this one...I am still in awe!

your card is awesome! I'll check out the videos, like you I like seeing them made. How cool to be able to see the lift off's! Bet you did have a wonderful sunrise. We went and the sun coming up was gorgeous! We were in a cemetary.......LOL. Not where you are but why you are there I guess.

Patti said...

This is so awesome Kelly! Love the sentiment! The bird rocks! I have that punch and have used it for everything but a bird! LOL!

Beth said...

This is so cool Kelly. I love the faux wood treatment you did on the house.

Carol<>< said...

Kelly, that would be an awesome sight to see,I think 50 miles away would be close enough for me chicken, anyway
your bird is so cute, I cannot believe you have not used it yet, hope we will be seeing it more.
Easter turned out warmer than what the weather people said it would be. just a little rain early and then sunshine. It was great!
will hop on over to see what is going on over at The Cutting Cafe!
Have a good one!

Hey Kelly, your Easter sounds awesome and the Space thing a little frightening. LOL Your card is just darling! Love the idea of using that cut as a bird house. Too cute! xxD

Migdalia said...

Kelly, I luv your card, esp the wood look! I know what u mean about the punch, I felt the same way! Can't believe I missed the shuttle! Maybe I'll get the sonic booms from landing. That's if it doesn't go to CA, again! Have a great day!

Oh my goodness gracious, this is the sweetest card ever! How adorable from the wooden look to that sweet little bird - superb! I have missed Sea World this past year, we usually have the annual pass and go several times a year! Sounds like a beautiful service!
