A Robin and another Bellariffic Friday Card

So far it’s been a very good day; however, it didn’t start out that well because I turned the alarm off instead of  hitting the doze button so I slept in a bit. While I was trying to decide if I wanted to hurry to get to Aqua Fit Joe said he really wanted to go for a nice long walk and would I skip Aqua Fit and go with him – decision made! I hate rushing. Before we left I filled up all the bird feeders. As we were watching the blue jays fight over the whole peanuts I put in a little cup for them, Joe said, “Look! On the fence…it’s a robin!” He was right there was a robin. Odd to see them this time of the year but maybe it’s a sign that we are going to have a mild winter and some have decided to stay. (Yeah right) We then went out for our walk and as we were walking along the Thames River I said, “There’s another robin!” Now it could have been the same one because we are only about six blocks from the river but who knows…they do all look the same after all.

Today is another Bellariffic Friday day. Last week I won another $20 in Bella bucks which is like a gift certificate for anything from her website – and usually I pick her stamps. I have a binder full of them and some left over. The winners are just picked by random only so everyone has the same chance to win. This week we were to make a card using a sketch. Here is mine.

 

This stamp can be used for either a Christmas stamp or a birthday stamp. I use it mostly for a birthday cards for little girls with birthdays in the winter time. It was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The blue paper is from small 6” packs from Studio G - $1.00 at Michaels. The pink paper is from my stash. The little embellishment in the corner was made by die cutting two of the smallest dies from Spellbinder’s Majestic Square die set and then offsetting them on top of each other and adding a peel-and-stick greeting.

And that would be all for a Friday. I think I’ll post a scrapbook page I just made this weekend that is my all time favorite.

Happy weekend everyone!

Cheers

Violet
