Caffinated Blog Hop!

Happy Friday to you! I have a card to share with you today, created from the Caffinated Cropper's new kit, called Birds of a Feather. It is such a fun kit to work with! I created this card....that I am embarrassed to admit, took me about 3 hours to make! I had this grand idea to use a real tree branch from the tree in my front yard. Then....I painted it white.....then I glittered it.....then decided it was much too plain. Sooooooooooo I added clusters of little flowers punched from papers from the kit. They were inked, Crystal lacquered, seed beads and glitter added. The bird was inked, Smooched in silver on the edges, a wing added and glittered. I tied the blue satin ribbon and added a vintage button threaded with the seed beads that come in the kit. Whew! 3 hours later this was the result..........

Please tell me the clusters of flowers were worth the hour and a half? Lie if you have to! LOL!

Would you like to see what the DT has up their sleeves with this cute kit? Head on over to:

Isn't it funny how we can sit and glue and fiddle with such intricate bits for hours, I honestly think those little clusters of flowers rock.
