you & me birdy



So ... tick, tick, tick ... the clock is moving quickly toward my youngest son moving out this weekend.  What a strange thought.   Tonight he taught me and my DH to Skype, LOL!   We will miss him but understand the benefits of going early as he's hoping to get a job.   This card is for this week's CYAO23 Challenge over at Paper Secrets.   It's an old MOJO Monday #126 Challenge sketch.  I struggled with the layout but it finally came together.

Supplies:  AMuse Studio Clouds, Fern Cardstock, French Roast, Green Gingham,  AMuse Studio stamps On the Wing, Just Because,  AMuse Ink Lime, Fern, French Roast,  AMuse Studio Ribbon Lime Organdy, Satin ,  AMuse Studio Green Assortment Buttons, CTMH Chipboard, Darice Birds Embossing Folder

  7. Very pretty card, love the clouds paper and the pretty greens! My youngest started college last fall, she went to school 1500 miles away! I missed her desperately but I survived. And I was so happy for her that she was able to be in such a great place for a college student, she loves Boston and is looking forward to heading back up in September!
