Bird Without Wings

Hey there. 
Have you signed up for my gratitude giveaways yet??!!  GO HERE.  I plan to announce my winners on Friday so go sign up.

I want to share a card I made using a soon to be released Stamp It Hummingbird stamp. 

I find myself only stamping in either black or brown most of the time.  Well this time I stepped out of my comfort zone and stamped in PURPLE!  Purple is my favorite color.  And purple went perfectly with these new My Minds Eye-Miss Caroline papers that I have been itching to use.  I added a little crystal Stickles to the hummingbird's tail to make him feel a bit more magical to go along with the lovely quote from Moslih Eddin Saadi which says, "A traveller without observation is a bird without wings".

I mentioned recently that I have been obsessing over these We R Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon punches on this post.  Well, I used the Zig Zag punch on this card.  I'm still loving the product.  It is really just super quick and simple to use.  I think I need the Flower punch next!! lol   I can see a ton of uses for that one. Do any of you have this product??  What do you think about it??  Loving it too??

The only other things on the card are a flower embellie and some bling from my stash that I colored with my Copics to match the card.   Just a clean and simple card.  What do you think?  I like it!

I spent a good portion of my day yesterday cleaning in my scrap room.  It had gotten a bit out of control and I wasn't enjoying trying to find a spot to scrap in there.  It is much better today.  Not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but better.

Tonight my ds has another Lacrosse game and we are going to take a team mate to the game with us.  I need to find my warm clothes because desert nights can get really cold!  

Okay, I'm off to the post office.  Thanks for stopping by today.
