I have been waiting for a free morning to use my Crazy Birds. I just love them. My Step Mother bought me the matching dies for my Birthday last month and I wanted to get them out and give them a try. OMGosh I love the matchy dies! I wondered how much white space would be off centered, if it would cut off the legs and feet or curly cue. Nope, it's a no brainer, perfectly aligns with the bird, I put a piece of removable tape on it and voila, a perfect cut out. I love that.
My Sister needed a Thank You card for a guy that brought her some most excellent bacon. She is a chef so that is a perfect gift. Fortunately, she brought it here! So it was most excellent. lol. My Muse is Jenn Shurkus from Creative Chick.....here is hers.
Jenn is having a month long Blogaversary Challenge and I was so happy to be able to play along. There is still a few more days to play if you are interested. She has lots of really cool things to case.
I'm sorry to have not made my way around to all of your blogs in a very long time. I had a Very busy July and just took my Certification in Case Management exam on Saturday. I had two weeks of very intense studying to do but I am happy to report that I did pass the exam and am now Certifiable, lol.
It's been a little while since I had that feeling that I could just sit and create something with nothing looming over me....except all the house work that NEEDS to be done, lol. So I will post this and get back to cleaning up the house for the next chapter....which is going back to College in September for a Bachelors degree. You know, it's always something right? lol. It's been 22+ years since I have been in school, so there is a bit of a relearning curve, but I think I can get back into the swing of things okay. It's a new requirement that Nurses in specialty areas need to get higher degrees. It will not make a difference in what I do or how I do it, but I will have some theory under my belt and the degree that satisfies the new requirements.
I had a lot of fun with this bear. I just love Birdie Brown designs. This is Birthday Bears from My Favorite Things, I colored with my Copics and used Echo Parks Summer Bliss paper.
