Merry Monday Week #46

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was quite busy!
Went Saturday to have an eye exam. My first ever! Turns out my eyes are pretty bad and they put me in bifocals! I picked out my frames so now it's a waiting game till they are ready for pick up! Shawn's vision wasn't quite as bad as mine but then he is younger than me. He picked out glasses as well. The eye doctor told me that these glasses will help me to see my projects much clearer and i'm hopin so!

Anyways, it's time for another challenge from Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper. This week it is a theme....

I stewed on this challenge for a week or so. Then I made a trip to L&L Stamps (my fav stamp store in the world!!!) and found this little blue jay stamp on sale. I colored him with my Copics then added some Diamond Stickles to his wing & tail and also my tree branch. My card base is Neenah White cardstock with a layer of Ballet Blue cardstock and another layer of White. I embossed a piece of Garden Green cardstock with the Snow Burst EF and placed it almost to the top of my card. Next I cut out my main blue jay image with my Square Nestibilities and hot glued my loopy bow on. Added my sentiment and some clear rhinestones to the corners and called it done. I'm quite happy with it!

What a beautiful card. Love the colors and the bird image.
You will be amazed at what you will see once you put your bifocals on. I wear them too, but find I see projects much better when I take them off.
