A Dino-Mite Day!

I had almost forgotten that I had signed up for a card swap for Whipper Snapper Designs cards. Here is the card I made (now I just have to make 5 more!). The sketch is a takeoff on the Creatively Yours Card Sketch #6.

I did a few extra things on this card, including finishing the inside! I love the way Cindy's cards look finished on the inside (her cards are gorgeous in their detail..you should check them out!) I also used some translucent flowers and leaves in the corner, a nice change from the Prima flowers!

Now I just have to make the other cards. I have already colored all the images and using my nestabilities cut them out and the scalloped mat. The sentiment is computer generated so that is done....I have all the measurements written down...now to just cut, pierce, brad, layer and done! I love doing swaps b ecause I love to get cards back, but I really do not like this part..the mass assembly. Luckily I only have to do 5 more. I could never do a larger swap than that!

The hot and humid weather has finally broken here and it is gorgeous outside! My daughter and I discovered a birds nest in our bush this morning with two little blue eggs! We are so excited!!! I may take a picture from far away, if I can do it without causing any bother.

Hope all is well!
