Rise and Shine


Today, I have a card to share created by my friend Susan.  A few of us got together a few weeks ago and started coloring these roosters for Susan's quilt/card ministry. 

Susan and an group of ladies make quilts for Veterans and Isreal.  Amazing quilts...beautiful and all supplies are donated.  These quilts have a pocket on the back which is filled with cards and other goodies.  It is an amazing ministry, that I have had the pleasure of making cards for and donate supplies to.  

Susan and Linda finished these cards last weekend and at church today Susan included one of the cards along with the stamps she borrowed and other leftovers.  I just had to share this great card! 

This card was was partially inspired by a card Christine made for her January workshops - check her card out.  We loved the cardboard and twine - great masculine card - great anyone card.

The coloring of the rooster was straight from Mischelle's Caboodle Coloring Class 2.  Mischelle made a similar card also - although I do not know if it has been published anywhere.  We saw it in class - jaw dropping beautiful that is really all I remember. Wow!

Rise and Shine is one of my husband's favorite sets.  Believe it or not, Mark looks through our catalogs and picks out sets he likes....or would like to see me make a card with.  This set moved up on my wish list because Mark picked it.  I think I will keep him....he has great taste.

Hope you enjoyed Susan's card.

Can't believe March is almost here!  The TAC and DDH Dream Design Teams will both be starting up March 1st.  Hope you will check in from time to time to see what we are up to.  

There will be blog candy if you are interested in playing along.  The DDH Dream Blog Hop is offering the chance to win a free DDH digi (I believe there will be 4 lucky winners chosen at random) if you comment at all the stops on the hop March 1st!  How can you go wrong?!?  All you have to do is comment at each stop on the hop!

TAC is kicking off the March 4-Legged Friends and Flowers promotion March 1st with Animal Theme cards.  A Shamrock theme blog hop March 4th.  Flower themed cards are featured March 8th.
