Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: You Can Still Sing Outside In The Cold!The temperatures in Denver for the past 2 days have been brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!! When we looked out the window into the backyard it seemed very still this morning. Usually our backyard is filled with activity - birds and squirrels gathering, burying and eating seeds and nuts. Surprisingly, even in the freezing cold, it didn't take long for a robin to show up at the bird bath. Then came the magpies and blue jays, followed by the flickers and sparrows - it was a party AND there was singing! We started hearing the most beautiful bird songs even in the frigid temperatures. Looks like the birds have taught me a lesson again - no matter what the weather, it's still worth singing! :)
Today I spent time working on decorations for my niece's upcoming 13th birthday! The colors are purple and silver. These medallions are going to be placed on the balloon strings - the strings will be adhered between the 2 medallions. I found great self-adhesive glittered fun foam at the local craft store and it worked great in the Big Shot! I love how you can cut so many different materials with the bigz dies in the Big Shot! I used a combination of dies - the scallops #2 die, the scallop circle die, and the clear circle die. I punched holes through the card stock with my crop-a-dile and then tied the silver and white ribbon (also from a local craft store). I will do some more experimenting tomorrow - need to design some treat bags too :) Stay warm and whether you are inside or out, take a moment to sing :)
I decided to add the card I made for the SCS sketch challenge to this post too...here it is!
