Tuesday Morning Stetches Challenge

Wow...two cards and two posts in the same day!
I told you that I spent my whole day playing in my craft room.  But that's ok, tomorrow will be busy
with church and church-related activities...and then there's.....MONDAY....

I have really slacked off on taking part in all the wonderful challenges out there in blog land.
After posting my turtle card today, I spent a few minutes ( it was an hour) checking out some of my favorite blogs.  I came across this sketch challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches...

...and I thought...why not?

I have admired all the fans I have been seeing others (more craftier than I) using on their projects.
So...again...I thought...why not?

I love the look of the fans, however...they would work out better if I had a third hand!
It's not a difficult process, just sort of clumsy (or maybe that's just me).

The stork is cut from Cricut's "Wrap It Up" cartridge at 5 1/4 inches.
I used my Cuttlebug and Divine Swirls on the body of the stork and Swiss Dots on the wings.

It might not be a winner, but it did accomplish a few things:

1. Got me to use a cartridge that I had not tried out.
2. Gave me a chance to try a new technique.
3. Gave me an hour or two of crafting bliss!

Not a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

Don't forget that on Monday, I will be drawing the winning name for April Showers!
You still have time to enter the drawing.  Just hop over HERE.  Leave a comment on my
Valentine Mini Album and become a follower if you haven't already.  Last chance to enter is

As always....I appreciate the time you spend with me and the comments you leave!

Until next time,
