Lovely amazing colors, I'm going to miss you



Oh how I am going to miss these colors when they retire.  I have to play with them as much as possible before the new catalog is released.  So when I saw these colors for the challenge at Fab Friday, I knew I needed to play along.  I found a wonderful layout at Freshly Made Sketches #185, but I had to add a little to the banners in order to use all the colors for the other challenge.  And, I know that I have given this a bit of a stretch to play along with Crafty Boots Challenge,when they asked for Wings I thought that feathers would do.  I have a beautiful cockatiel named Snowflake, and feathers are a way of life at my house.  She is allowed to fly loose all day, so we find her beautiful feathers all over the place, and I marvel at each one of them.  I have thought often about including some in my crafts.  I have enough of them.  
 The feathers and salutation come from the Lovely Amazing You stamp set.  Love the sayings that this set has, and I have to play with it some more this week.  I loved this card so much I made up a set of them for a swap I participate in, and I hope this won't spoil this for anyone by posting it today, but I just wanted to share this before I head out this morning for a weekend of camping. Stop by again, soon, to see what I've been making.

Here's our snowflake. 
Can you tell my granddaughter is getting a kick out of the bird eating Rice Krispies? 
That bird eats anything I eat, except ice cream.  Instant brain freeze!
