Friday on Wednesday

Wouldn't that be great? Having a Friday on Wednesday? Some weeks I am totally ready for Friday in the middle of the week.
I missed last Friday's blogger challenge, not because I didn't have my card done, I did. I just had too much drama at my house to be able to focus enough to post. I had been out of town the weekend before at my parent's house. It was a wonderful weekend, catching up with family and taking a break from my home responsibilities. Unfortunately, home drama caught up with me before I could make it home and stayed til Thursday afternoon. I won't go into great detail...let me just say that having teenagers is going to drive me to an early grave. All is 'well' for the moment, so I am going to sneak a post in.
Our challeng on Friday was "happy spring" or something close to it. This little birdie was calling out to me, so he got to be on my card. The background flowers are stamped with Orchid (a color I almost never use, except in spring) and chalked over in the same color. I colored the birdie with markers and covered the stamped flower with another flower from the big flower set that I cut out. Just a fun little card.

Cute card! Orchid is a pretty color that needs to be highlighted like this!
