A CASE of Cardinals

Happy Sunday, started out bad. A few yrs ago we bought 2 SMART Clocks, well the Fed gov decided to change the weekends for Daylight Savings Time Begin and End. The SMART Clocks are not as smart as we would like them to be. I have tried to find out what weekend the old time changes were unsuccesful until today when we opened the box of one of these clocks to find out how to reprogram them. There it is big as it can be. Anyway this morning we work to the alarm and casually drank coffee then realized that it was 1 hr later than we thought. gggrrrr. He was about 30min late for work and in ICU they don't like for you to be late. He was graciouly forgiven bc he is NEVER OUT SICK or LATE.

Now onto today's project. Anyway this is for today's FEATURED STAMPER - SpeedyStamper. I used this weeks SKETCH CHALLENGE. I love her gallery and had a hard time deciding which one to CASE. I finally decided that since I had just got this set and LOVE it so much I chose her A CARDINAL THANKSGIVING. I changed the colors, the dp and the layout. My main image was stamped in black brilliance and colored w/prismacolor pencils then blended w/gamsol. The sentiment was stamped in versamark then Red tinsel EP applied and heat set. I applied stickles to the berries. This really sparkles IRL. I love how this turned out and hope you do to.

Paper: Vanilla, real red, old olive, dashing, river rock

Neva that is a gorgeous card! I really do love this set. So sorry the day didn't start out very well. I still haven't figured out when the time changes again.
