Happy May!

Happy Monday! I know we will be having another busy week at our house. It all starts with the dentist tomorrow (an hour away), a trip to Grande Prairie for work (another 3.5 hours away) and our daughter getting ready for Ukrainian Dancing Performance- they are doing a welcome dance for the Shumka Dance Group on Saturday (also our Town's 100th Centennial Anniversary). But I'm sure fun will be had by all...all week long;)

Anyways, I made this card for Challenge #54 over at A La Card Monkey- its a pretty neat sketch this week. I definitely enjoyed it.

DP: Elegant Soiree-SU
CS: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip- SU
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky (I lightly sponged on some soft clouds behind the bird)
Punch: Two-step Bird- SU
Other: Very Vanilla Seam Binding-SU;  Baha Breeze Courduroy Button Brad-SU (which I won with some blog candy over at A La Card Monkey)

And there is no stamping...not sure where that came from...I don't think I've ever made a card without stamping on it:)

I've also gone ahead and posted this card over at The Paper Player's: Challenge #45

Thanks for stopping by :)                         Jessie
