Thinking of You...

Good morning friends. I hope you are doing well this Thursday morning! I seem to be drawn to beautiful green things...I guess my person is ready for lots of beautiful green grass and if possible some flowers to boot! With the rain that comes to us in Seattle, we know the green WILL come...just hoping we don't drown in the rain that brings it!;)

Although today isn't Monday, I wanted to play along with the "Cure for the Monday Blues" challenge. I LOVE the pattern on the rug.... and the floral pattern on the wall and I LOVE the pops of bright color! I was excited to find that my stencil matched the rug... anyway...I love the inspiration photo...
 
I also used the new Freshly Made Sketch.  I loved the simple cleanness of it..as always!! This particular stencil is from Simon Says Stamp. I used Mowed Lawn distress ink for most of the color, then after I took off the stencil I lightly used my ink blending tool to add a little bit of Peacock Feather distress ink too. Just a little hint of the Peacock Feather... The Moxie Fab Challenge that is currently going on is about stencils... YEA!! I have been smitten with them...
My floral pattern is from an American Crafts Spring pad I picked up at Target the other day...and the colors are SO fresh and vibrant...I love them all!! The sentiment is also new for me, it's from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings set. I stamped it with some Hero's Hues Black ink.
 
My lovely feathers...were cut out of watercolor paper with the Wplus9 Fanciful Feathers dies. I used distress ink to water color them, then used some Martha Stewart Neon glitters to add some texture and shine!! I had to almost fight my daughter Ruby for these feathers...I was letting them dry on my desk and she spotted them...oh boy! You will be happy to know that she painted a whole bird worth of feathers today...and they have all been glitified and are awaiting being put onto cards when she gets home from school today!
 
The last piece of my card are my cute pink sequins...that are FLAT! They are a new Heidi Swapp RUB-ON! How fun are they...VERY!! There are some great shaped rub-ons that you will see in the coming days...SO much fun!!
 
I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll see you tomorrow for some more fun!! Thanks care and thanks for stopping by!!

Wowza, this is so eye-catching!! Love that bright green in between the pale blue pattern, and the pops of colour from the feathers are awesome! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!
