Just thinking about Bend has me smiling...Trader Joe's (please, no laughing, but I do love Charles Shaw wine!!)...Old Mill District...the Deschutes River...the Cascade Mountains...Gossamer yarn store...sighhhh...Did I mention that I. LOVE. BEND?? Even though it's a two day drive from home - Kenniwick WA is the first stop on the way to Bend; Kelowna, BC on the return trip (where we spend time with my husband's family)- and a whirlwind week's time frame for travel, it's all wonderful. Just plain wonderful!
Anyway, in and amongst the happy dancing, house cleaning, laundry and 'pondering' what to pack (not done yet - I tend to over-pack if I do so too early), I focused (well, tried!) on making cards, to keep the buzzing anticipation at bay. Now I'm wondering...did I get those challenges straight??
Today's card is a combined entry to TAWS BE Inspired #24, based on this delightful 'points of many entries' photo that was mightily challenging (lots of stretching with this one!) and Retrosketches #56:
Here's my card: TAWS freebie Happy Birthday sentiment, nestled inside the doodly frame, (and popped up) from the No Peeking set, and papers from Carta Bella's So Noted collection. Such pretty patterns; hopefully, the colours do justice to the inspiration photo. Lori's sketch is great and one I'll definitely use again. Because my button stash is quite (ummm...extremely!) meagre, I opted for hearts.
Thanks for dropping by! Wishes for a Happy Easter and a safe, blessed, relaxing and rejuvenating weekend!
Did I mention that I. LOVE. BEND?? Yes...I thought so, but just in case...and, oh my,a 'little' card-making package has made its way into my suitcase! I wonder how that happened...
This card received 'shout out' status: I am sooooo honoured! Thank you: http://retrosketches.blogspot.ca/2013/04/retrosketches-56-rockstar-shoutouts.html
