FCCB Challenge Me Monday - #151

Hello Bloggers!  I am coming off of an entire weekend of crafting with a group of my friends.  It just doesn't get any better than that!  Thanks girls for a great weekend!! Hi Edie, I know you will be reading this. Love you...

Baseball season has started and it is rather bittersweet for me.  First I love baseball....I have been watching at least one of my sons play baseball for 20 years and this is our last season.  So, if I am missing off and on I am probably setting in the cold watching baseball.

This week the challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is to create something with a bird on it.  So here is my take on it:

I have been on a sheet music kick lately.  Oh well, it's really fun to work with.  I cut the bird and the cage from the French Manor cartridge.  I colored the bird with colored pencils and used Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the cage.  I used Bundled Sage Distress Stain to stain the seam binding.  One of my new favorite things!!!

 I had some left over petals from one of my card classes and decided that they would be perfect.  Waste not, want not....
my grandma used to tell me. 

Stop by FCCB and see what the rest of the design team came up with.  Some of the new design team will be inspiring you today!

Talk to you later... 

Until then...Be safe and Create!
