Remember this floral card lying on my desk on Wednesday ? I completed it by trimming the  edge with a MS border punch, adding the strip of purple and another punched border. Done.

 This bird card was on my desk too! I  cut the parrot a long time ago and didn't know what to do with it. All this time he has been hanging out with birds, bugs and butterflies. Until one day while sorting through my many clear celo bags of cut elements,  I pulled him out and the flamingo tagged along.  

I continued rummaging and pulling out different embellishments that caught my interest and dropped them on my work space. Well.... just the way these 2 birds got caught together gave me a chuckle as I spied the "Thinking of You" oval. 

And that is how this card came together. The horizontal strip is a single line of polka dots trimmed from a scrap. It made the perfect perch. The narrow stripes in the background suggest a cage. The golden edged oval and the script on the sentiment demanded some bling. Don't you love the look in his eye?.... "WHAT are you thinking?"

I have many card toppers started or cut. In fact I have a bin of them. 4" X 5.25" pieces of card stock some embossed or stamped, some this one. Without the poppies popping over the edge it would look to be off balance.  But I like this card, I salvaged it ...using my new Prim Poppies from Memory Box, a slash of polka dots and musical washi tape, completed with some black glitter in between. Suitable for many occasions...just add sentiment.


Golden rings of various sizes placed over a strip of leopard fabric on an abstract cut - black base. Inside revels a  striped strip to delineate the curve. I'm not sure yet how to finish this one. Your ideas or suggestion would be appreciated.

I appreciate all my followers....and happily return visits to all that leave comments or questions. Thanks for visiting. Be well and craft on...I've gotta get back to playing! :) ~ Carole
