Twisted Sketches card #95

I am getting back on track!  

To see the sketch for this card head on over to Twisted Sketches blog.  The twist this week is "leap".  

The sentiment is a Wendy Vecchi stamp from her "Art-fully said" set.  To take a "leap" (of faith) you have to believe all things are possible. The butterfly is from  Hero Arts' Antique Engravings that I stamped with Staz-on Jet Black on glossy cardstock after covering it with Alcohol Inks.   The flowers are also on glossy cardstock covered in Alcohol Inks.  (I used citrus, pool, cool perl,  purple twilight. and blending solution).  The black "circle"  was cut from Memory Box's Whimsey Circle die.  I attached the circles to the glossy cardstock and hand cut.   The card and lavender paper were from my scrap bin.  The buttons were in my stash.  Hope you like it!

So close, yet so far away. . . .

Last year this bird and her/his partner were frequent visitors and this past Monday they showed up again! They love the rose bush in front of our window.  They flit from one branch to the next, almost always near the house instead of the side or near the sidewalk.  They do not seem to be bothered by us moving around even if we get near the window.  They will even fly right up to the window on occasion.

They are fun to watch, especially when Artemis is around!  Artemis is a 100% indoor cat.  We call the window her TV.  If we don't open the blinds soon enough to her liking, she will sit on the back of the couch and gently paw at the blinds until she has annoyed us enough to open them for her! 

In the picture below you can see one of the birds "hovering" top of the picture just to the left of center and the other is in the lower right corner.

I know I've been away for awhile, but I think I will be back very soon and posting some of my creations!  Hope you will come back and visit!
