CAS-ual Fridays - Long & Short

Happy Monday!

I've got a card to share today before heading out into the frigid temps! Holy, moly! We are suppose to have a windchill factor of -35F all day long!! That's BELOW zero folks! I am not looking forward to getting in my car after work later today! 

I always get tired of winter in the middle of January, and I long for warmer temps and blooming flowers, so I couldn't resist switching my blog header - makes me feel better! :)

My card today is a fun one for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #86.


I always enjoy creating long (or tall) cards, and I've been loving these papers from Doodlebug Design's 6x6 pad called, Lovebirds, so I used some of them on this card.


After adhering the papers onto the card base, I simply added a paper pieced bird and a sentiment from the Hero Arts set called, Valentine Sayings.

Thanks for coming by! I hope it's warmer where you are! BRRRRR!!

That paper is so cute, Barb! Your card is adorable and I do love tall cards too, so I should give this challenge a try. Keep warm, cause those temperatures are too cold!!! LOL!

Yikes, I feel for you, Barb! We complain when the weather gets into the 30s here so I can't even imagine below zero.

Your card puts a smile on my face! Those little birdies are so cute & happy.

Loving the length (or height?!), Barb. And that birdie looks like it was made for that cute paper. Adorable. Stay warm......guess I can't complain about our 28-degree mornings!

It is such an adorable card indeed Barb!
Hopefully these sweet colors will warm us up ;-)

Dawn Turley said...

goodness me Barb.... I really can't imagine temperatures that LOW!!!! Winter here in Auckland only gets to around 45F ( 8C) so not anywhere near as cold as you. Your new header is lovely and cheerful. And your card is delightful.

Keep warm! Your card is certainly nice and springy. And I love the blooms in your blog header.

Hi Barb, I hope my blog post(s) have helped "warm" you up a bit then. It's been in the mid 30s (degrees) here for the last few days & today it's raining & only 22 (degrees) so just lovely. I love your card, those little birdies are so cute. Hope the weather warms up soon for you sweetie xoxoxo
