Backyard Basics

I'm so sorry that Backyard Basics stamps set and coordinating framelits are retiring and in fact they sold out almost immediately once the retirement list came out on Monday. In fact, many things are already sold out. If there is a special stamp or accessory set you want you need to order it right away before it's gone.

The idea for this card came from Ilina Crouse. I changed a few details and colors. This was my first time using the new Hexagon Hive Framelit from the Occasions catalog. It is not easy to get the cardstock out of the framelit because of the very narrow edges but if you a piece of wax paper between the cardstock and the framelit it will easily come out.

It may be hard to tell that I added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the card. The bird is put on with a dimensional. The other elements are put on with Snail tape runner.


This past Sunday my granddaughter, Sofia, read the Scripture in church. She also was in the University of Kentucky production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. And she is a dancer and recently won platinum awards in a dance competition. So very proud of her and all she does. I wish I had been there to see her performance and see her in church. The picture below was taken by my son who does sound at church. So what you see is his photo of the monitor where he is in the balcony.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by,
