What's NOT black and white and red all over?


DSCN5876This CARD!!  ;)  I figured it's a nice change to what I've been posting and I forgot to put it on here for you to see.  I like it - it's another paper-pieced Top Note Bigz Die.  I LOVE doing this with the Top Note Die!!!  I was totally inspired by THIS cute card by Tessa.  What's funny is what I noticed on the card was the duckies - I loved how she did several in different colors, and that's what I wanted to CASE.  Subconsciously though, I must have wanted to CASE another detail because the tearing on her card I didn't even remember seeing but noticed when I was getting the link to give you.  Kinda funny that we are taking in more than we think we are when we see someone else's creations.  Of course, it could be a coincidence and I didn't really have some subconscious desire to CASE the tearing element, and great minds just think alike!  :)

Anywho...not much else to say today (YES, I'm ok!!! he he) except the usual reminders for this week:

1.  Don't forget to play in my Boot Loot contest for a GREAT prize.  Click HERE to go to that post.

2.  Feedblitz does not work with my blog.  Don't know why, but it doesn't, so use the Feedburner link I re-added at the bottom of the in the left-hand sidebar if you don't want to use Google Reader (which is THE BEST!!).  I would recommend unsubscribing via Feedblitz.

Have a great day!
