Pretty Little Peacock - Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Hello, friends!!!

Happy Friday!  Woohooo!  Do you have Super-Bowl-watching plans this weekend?  I just spoke with my buddy Butch in St. Louis.  It will be his last supper, so to speak, as he is starting the South Beach diet on Monday.  We're going to try to encourage each other to lose a little weight.  I only wish I just had 25 pounds to lose like he he does!  Well, one step at a time, right?

Here's a card I made in December (last year - tee hee!) for the Humble Artists' Group swap that I am in.

I just can't stop using my Spellbinders(TM) Grand Labels Four die templates for cards!  See how nicely they nest together?  I used the largest for the card base, then the next one for the blue paper.  Then I cut the center out of the blue paper, flipped it over to the light brown side and used that inside the card!  Don't you love that little peacock?  I should have taken a photo of her before I mailed off my cards, but I didn't.  I inked her up in green, then added some blue with sponge daubers, plus a few sparkles on her crest and feathers.

I'm itchin' to craft, so I think I'll retreat to my humble studio.

Till later,
