CASology #158

I didn't realize how difficult it would be to get back into card making after having been away from it for a while.  I've been back a week from the last outing and only made one card. Today is the day I'm going to catch up, especially since I have a Design Team card due next week.  It's rather dreary out so it's a perfect day to spend time in the craft room.  Now for a few 'brilliant' ideas and I'll be all set.

I do have a card for CASology, whose cue word is Precious.  I think life is precious so that's what I put on my card.


I saw a painting at a gift shop at the lake that had a watercolored hummingbird on it.  Then I saw this card by Shery at That One Layered Mixed Media Girl.  Putting the two together, I ended up with this rather artsy card.  It would probably have been better if the lines on the hummingbird from WPlus9 were a little thicker but when my husband said he liked it, I was thrilled. The sentiment is from Stamplorations.

No more talking now.  It's time to get to work before time gets away from me and I have nothing to show for it.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
