sweet aviary...

Monday already?!!!

I was able to get a bunch of cards done yesterday....I even multi-tasked my challenges!


Today's card was inspired by the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger:



Caardvarks Photo Inspiration Challenge:

...and Paige's bird challenge over on the Cards Blog...

Here's my final result:

Here's what inspired me:

Tuesday Trigger: Green Gingham, the frame and the colors

Caardvarks: The colors and the bird cages

Cards Blog: bird challenge

I've been seriously hoarding that Melissa Frances frame...like forever...it was a perfect add to the card based on the MFW Tuesday Trigger...this card will need to packaged in a box to go through the USPS..LOL...I dug out the Basic Grey Aviary stamp set...the bird is from the Schlosser Designs "Have a Tweet Day" set that I cut and layered with Martha glue and glitter...

Have a super fabbie Monday...today I'm having lunch with my bloggie pal Elaine...we're having sushi!!! Yes, I am the Japanese girl that doesn't use chopsticks and doesn't eat anything raw...yes, both my parents were born in Japan...my Mom always shakes her head when I ask for a fork at a Japanese restaurant:) So, when I type sushi, I mean cooked stuff for me...tamago nigiri etc...

Oh my, pure gorgeousness! That frame is perfect for this! :)

Hey, I'm Chinese and still cross my chopsticks...:( Totally pure laziness...I use them the proper way in Korea because they use the flat metal ones...

Try salmon...it's the easiest thing to eat raw (tastes like smoked salmon)...it's an acquired taste...;)

Elaine said...

How about the chinese girl that never uses chopsticks? No wonder we get along so well, girl! LOL

I adore the green and white color scheme - and why am I in love with all these birds latelY? Cuz you make them so dang cute! Stop it now! I keep wanting more and more! lol I'm supposed to be over this crafting kick...kwim?

pretty card, amy! love the frame and birdcage. i love that photo of those birdcages, they are so pretty!
Oo, sushi...just had some ebi sushi yesterday for lunch. i tend not to eat the raw fish unless it's super fresh. spicy ahi is good ;p'. oh, i don't use chopsticks very well either...as long as the food can get to my mouth, no need for technique, right? hehe.
have a great day, amy!
*hugs* and much aloha,
steph :)
