Not Exactly...


Just a really quick post tonight.  Made a card for my Mom - she needed to replenish her stash a bit.  I wasn't sure about this one - it was one of those cards that didn't turn out the way I had envisioned it in my head!  But my Mom seemed to like it.  So I decided to post it :)   Maybe I'll take another crack at it in the next little while to see if I can translate the vision into a card second time around :)

Have a look :)

Those sweet little birds are from Lawn Fawn, and the rest is a mix of Paper Smooches, PTI and TAWS.  Got to say, I'm also not sure about the filled in letters!  Before I did it, I felt like the sentiment/word bubble needed "something", but after I did it, I realized it was not the something it needed!  Oh well, it was worth a shot!

That's it for me today.  We have a few things on the go for tomorrow, but hopefully I can sneak in a card as well!

Thanks for stopping in for a peek!


  1. Yayyyy...another creation, that I think is super cute! The row of circles, little birds (darling!), the stamped on patterned paper sentiment: delightful! And of course, the Shannon-signature wee heart!! "Vision" and "translation" sometimes don't jive, but I'm with your Mom: this is a keeper!! As for a 're-vised' version: something I need to do with mine more often! Re-vised usually winds up "re-cycled"! Just did a close-up (again), and yep, it's a sweet, sweet card!! Have a FABULOUS day! I'm off to Calgary to watch the finale of the Tour of Alberta, then bring my husband home! Yayyyyy!!!

  2. super cute. i like the circle pattern and who doesn't love a talk bubble??? I also love that little heart with the twine. Too cute.

  3. So cute, Shannon! Love the geometric circle pattern and the houndstooth pattern on the speech bubble. And those chicks--adorable!

  4. So cute, Shannon! I really like the heart with the twine and the little birdies in the circles! :)

  5. it's adorable! Those sweet birds are darling!

  6. I think is perfect as is! Don't change a thing :)

  7. Are you kidding me? You didn't like this card?! It's sooooooo fab! I love the circles and the little birdies inside! LOVE the speech bubble-- you know I LOVE LOVE LOVE it all! So glad you posted it!!! YOU ROCK!

  8. First of all, I love the colored in letters - unexpected but effective against the patterned background. I'm with Barb - don't change a thing! I'm getting a 'typewriter' feel to your card which is such an effective way to relay the birthday message - very clever young lady! The wee heart & the twine - yep, swoon worthy!!!

  9. Love this and the circles! This is an adorable card!
