Take a Word - Umbrella

Take A Word challenge this week is 'Umbrella.'  Living in Vancouver you have an appreciation for the umbrella!  It is bucketing rain outside my window as we speak and I know I am going to be hunting for one of my umbrellas today.  Enjoy your day and don't let a little rain get in the way!  Cheers

Think Monday, Think ATC

The theme for TMTA this week is 'Children.' 

There is nothing as wonderful as the imagination of children.  They truly believe their dreams and unlike adults, they don't put roadblocks in front of themselves.  Of course this can have some disastrous results at times, as in my daughter who believed she could fly if she could only get up high enough. Upon launching herself from atop a bureau this little bird ended up with a broken wing (arm)!  Not quite how it happened in her dream.  The wonderful thing about children is their resilience, they dust themselves off and enjoy the new experience of getting a cast on and off they go to experiment some more.

Our dreams can take us to incredible places.  Imagine You Can...Cheers!

Inspiration Avenue Challenge

The Inspiration Monday challenge at Inspiration Avenue is 'Harlequin.'  I glued some dictionary onto cardstock, stamped and embossed this fabulous Bird Diva stamp (it belongs to my friend, Donna) from Lost Coast Design over it and added some colour with TH distress inks.  Thanks for looking.  Hope you have some fun creating today - cheers!

Colour Theme - Black and Grey

The colour challenge at Gingersnap Creations this month is 'Black and Grey.'  I have used some grey and cream papers from SU, the bird stamp and the speckles are also from Stampin'Up; the tissue tape is Tim Holtz.  Thanks for looking - cheers!
