Thank You Eagle card

Hello and yay it's Friday.  To be honest, I have lost track of the days.  I couldn't tell you a Sunday from a Wednesday.  We wake up, brush teeth, and just get on with what we think we should be doing.  I wonder if this is what retirement feels like?

Well, for this Friday, I would like to share a card for the latest Corrosive Challenge: Anything Goes.
I picked this Eagle from Morgan's Art World with the intention of making a 4th of July creation.  My first attempt was just awful and dark, so I changed the layout and the papers and thought this could actually be used for anything.  Still being a bit patriotic, I searched for a thank you stamp.  I FAILED at heat embossing the sentiment three times and ended up just stamping in black.  I sure messed up a lot of DP.
Eagle eyes are usually more of a green, but I went with blue.  I added a touch of glaze for fun, a couple die cut flourishes and gold stars.  So that's it from me today.  Thank you for stopping by.  Join in this month if you can and there is also a free digi for all.

This meets the following challenges:  Crafty Creations: Anything Goes, Artsy Stamper Challenge: Things With Wings, and Crafty Creations: Anything Goes.

Gardening Bunny for Easter

Hello all and wow we are already in April!  I don't know about you, but staying home from work has NOT increased my opportunity to craft.  If anything, I now have TWO full time jobs: my regular job and my new homeschool teaching position.  On top of that, my minions tend to eat 3 - 4 times a day (read: lots of dishes), and they require attention and exercise.

Anyway, on to today's share:
This adorable Garden Spring Bunny was a recent Friday Freebie at Bugaboo stamps.  I'm sorry I didn't announce this earlier - hopefully enough people were able to take advantage of this cutie.  I went a little crazy with my papers, since my current goal is to use what I have....especially since I'm forced to NOT shop.
The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes set and I'm using a variety of different dies.  I added just a touch of glaze and sequins.  Even with the image popped up, this is still rather flat for easy mailing.

That is all for now.  Hope all is well!  Thank you for taking a look at my latest creation.

This meets the following challenges:  Always Fun Challenges: Easter, Use Your Stuff: Easter, Cuttlebug Mania: Easter, and Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes.
