Hello, everyone! 

Okay, don't pass out. And, no, it's not the first Saturday of the month. I am here with a rare mid-month, non-SAS4Kids post.   :)

The truth is I stopped blogging during the pandemic because I had pretty much lost my crafting mojo. While I envied friends who were finding some joy inking up and getting crafty, that wasn't the case for me. And then, like many folks, my priorities changed post pandemic. Yes, I've still been busy making cards... but I have gotten away from blogging about them.

But a funny thing happened this past weekend while making a new home card for some friends. Not only did I make a card that I really, really like, I found out there's a Card Design Superstar Contest going on over at My Favorite Things. Moreover, it turns out this tweet card -- sorry, I couldn't help myself -- seems to meet the criteria.

  • MFT Pattern Paper: Tiny Check
  • MFT Stamps: Tweet Greetings
  • MFT Die-Namics:
    • Branch & Leaves: Beautiful Branch
    • Birdhouse Hanger: Filled with Joy
    • Birds and Birdhouse: a retired set gifted to me years ago

So, without further ado, here's my tweet housewarming card.

Ink and solid papers used:
  • Versamark onyx black
  • Stampin' Up cardstock: base, birdhouse, birds Core'dinations core paper: blue mat behind MFT check Ranger Distress core paper: leaves                                      Recollections value packs: branch, black mat behind MFT DCWV Glitter Mat Stack: birdhouse hanger 
Since my friends are moving into a brand spankin' new place, I thought I should add a little extra shimmer. A touch of Wink of Stella (on the birdhouse and birds) and a few tiny Recollections pearls did just the trick! 

I'll be back October 7 with a new Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge... if not sooner. In the meantime, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
