I am so excited to announce that I am officially a banana - not just any banana but a RED BANANA!! 2RedBananas is a new stamp company that opened earlier this year and I have just really enjoyed the stamp lines that Jeanette carries as well as the other products! She had me at ribbon! Gorgeous, wonderful ribbons. I own a few yards of several. They make me smile. I need to not hoard them; I do know where to get more! LOL!! It'll be one of my goals for the next year!! When she asked me a few weeks ago to join the design team I was a happy girl! Smiled for hours and kept re-reading the email! I'm so lucky to be joining a fabulous bunch of girls and really look forward to working with them over the next year!
Every Sunday the Bunch issues a challenge - the Banana Split Challenge! It's fun and has zero calories! This week's challenge was to use stripes in your creation. I know the week is almost over, but if you get chance, link up your creation over at the 2RedBananas blog for a chance to win some My Mind's Eye paper!!
I used the Caring Critters set for my card today. Birds always make me think of my mother. She knows what many of them are and can even identify them just by hearing them. I was loading the washing machine this morning and my little man came running in from outside: "I saw a robin Mommy! I saw a robin!" We've had lots of robins around our house this spring.
My image was colored with my Prismacolor pencils and baby oil. Here's the entire finished card:
if he soars with his own wings.
I hope you soar this weekend!
I'll have another post on Saturday for the Cuttlebug Challenge Spa Event along with more blog candy so I hope you'll come back for that!
P.S. I've loved all your comments today! So many of you love lavendar and love the Johnson & Johnson Sleep Time lavendar bath for little ones too!
