If you are here for my blogaversary candy, please go here. But come back!
Hi everyone! The whole time I was coloring today's card one thought kept going through my mind. Before I tell you that thought though I need to give you some background. As the whole world knows because the television stations bombarded us with the news night and day, television stations went from analog to digital on June 12th.
Well, I have a television at work that uses the old rabbit ears antennae and on June 12th I no longer had tv. It wasn't a huge loss. The rabbit ears only picked up one station! But my boss, great guy that he is went and bought one of the converter boxes so that I'd have T.V. again.
I got it all hooked up and let it scan for stations and got 5 channels! But none of those channels was the one that I had always watched. So, I was punching the channels around to see what was on and one of the channels had Jerry Springer on. I detest that show and was surprised to see it was even still on the air. I watched a few minutes of it and continued channel surfing. Anyway, I think the little bit that I saw made this thought run through my head and then I couldn't get rid of it.
Here's my card with the greeting I went with

but I was thinking "That guy on Jerry Springer could give this card to his dad with the greeting 'You're a crappy dad' for father's day" LOL! Isn't it funny the things that go through your head when you're coloring? Oh, it's just me?
Anyway, this is one of the new squigglefly images and it's called One Seater. Isn't it a hoot? Crystal from Rustic Daisy drew this one!
I also participated in the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers yesterday. I don't get a chance to do that challenge very often, but it was so hot yesterday that I was spending more time in my craft room.
Anyway, the inspiration came from a pair of baby booties from a place called Bugaloo. Here's a picture of the booties I got my inspiration from
When I saw this I knew what I wanted to do and the good thing is that it also qualifies for the DareU2DigiStamp challenge this week which is to create a scene!
Here's my card

I colored the entire thing with chalks. I embossed a cuttle bug embossing folder onto a card that the bird was already printed on, and then I colored the leaves and branches with chalk. I then chalked in a tree, sky, and grass. I stamped grass sprigs and colored the bird with chalks. The bird is from squigglefly and is called Hungry Bird.
I hope you're all enjoying your Sunday. Don't forget that tomorrow I'll announce the winner of my blogaversary candy! Thanks for looking!
