Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Time to Fly

It was love at first sight when I saw this darling bird image.
This is Lola Bird by Stretch N Bubbles at the Special 50/50 Group.
I've used Lola Bird for the challenge
Red, Pink, Cream
Make a Card for a RAK

I printed 3 Lola Birds and colored them with my Copics.
I cut them out and added them to the red card stock. I love
this shade of red and the paper has a great texture. Added 3
flowers....because good things come in threes ya, know.
The sentiment is computer generated. Whoops one Lola
has a broken leg. Poor Baby.

Sew it Up
This is their very first challenge and
appropriately themed Stitches
Ebony & Ivory
They have just started a game of Bingo.
Follow their link for complete details.

I used Patch from Daisy Doodles. He came with stitches already.
I added a few more faux stitches on the sentiment.
I wanted to do paper piecing for the patches on the wings.
But they were just to small for me to deal with. I think that would
look so cute with different print papers used for the patches.
I'll print Patch out bigger next time and give that a try. The
sentiment is computer generated. A stitch in time leads us
to my next challenge entry.


Tax time will be here before we know it. On my last shopping trip
I picked up my tax software and I'm in the process of getting
This is a digi collage that took just a few minutes to put together
once I found the images. I wish I was that fast preparing my taxes.

Robyns Fetish is having a DT call...details HERE.
