Hello again.  I am home from the Open House.  Dinner is over and all I need to do is clean up the kitchen.  Plus I want to go plant some tomatoes.

But before that, I wanted to make a card.  Usually, I make the card and then see which challenges it will fit under.  But I haven't done a sketch in a while and I do love them, so I decided to start with the sketch and see what stamp I have on my to play with stack would work with it.

The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  A perfect sketch for a big stamp.  I decided to use this lighthouse from C.C. Designs.  It has been sitting on my table for some time.  After picking out the stamp, I knew it would work for the challenge over at Dies R Us, but I needed to use a die.  What to do?????  It finally came to me.  I would flip the banner to the top right side instead of the bottom left and use my cloud thin cut.

You can't tell by the picture, but I cut the bird out and popped him with some foam tape. And added some Winks of Stella on the belly of the bird to give it a shimmer.

I just adore this card.  I am going to make a power kit out of it and take it to next week's crop.  I have got to make up some kits or I am not going to have any thing to do for the 10 hours.

I am going to use it in the following challenges:
   Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch #454
   Dies R Us - Birds 
   Your Scrapbook Place - Anything Goes
   Cute Card Thursday - Little Boy Blue (Lots of Blue)
Off to plant some tomatoes.  Chat with you a little later hopefully.  Have a great evening.
