using only natural colors you'd find in the fall.

Unfortunately, I don't have a card to share with you this week, as I never managed to find any time to spend in my craft room between training at my new job and having a house full of sickies!   Were all feeling better now, and the new job is going well!  I will definitely be getting back to my crafting this week!

The design team have created some wonderful projects for you to enjoy!  So be sure to visit each of them and learn more about their nature inspired creations!

SSC #33 - Turkey Time!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, November 15, 2009 3 stamps of approval

This weeks challenge at Stamptacular is to make any card or project that can be given or used at Thanksgiving time.  Aaaaaand... if you put a TURKEY on it, you'll get entered twice to win this fabulous prize!

Sponsor: Simon Says Stamp

The prize is
plus FREE shipping! 

The design team have, of course, created some amazing projects to inspire you!  And remember, if you don't have a turkey stamp, don't worry!  You don't have to use a turkey, you just get an extra entry if you do!

I didn't have a turkey stamp, so I went cruising the internet trying to find a digital stamp that I liked, and I did find quite a few... but then I went to the local Craft Warehouse and found this set by Unity.  I just couldn't pass it up!!  Not only was I looking for an excuse to get my first Unity stamp set,  I needed a turkey, and this set was just too cute!  Not to mention that I thought I could use his wings to make flowers, petals and stuff!  A multi-purpose stamp set is always a good thing, right?  So, here's my Turkey card!  I hope you like it!

 I used the Build-a-Turkey stamp set by Unity, and Coffee ink pad by Brilliance.  I added some ink to the background with a spritzing tool, before sewing the piece to the card.  I layered the wings with popdots to add dimension, and used a bit of Stickles on his beak and waddle for some shine.

SSC #30 - For My Friend

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, November 01, 2009 2 stamps of approval

Our challenge at Stamptacular this week is to make a card for a friend.

Our sponsors are Our Very Own, Liza!  Who is offering up a Snowflake Cuttlebug folder, just in time to get you ready for your Holiday cards!  

And my dear friend, Cassandra, of Doodle Street Designs!  Who is offering up a digital image of your choice from her shop!

I have used one of Cassandras awesome images on my card.  I love this little birdie!  This is what I think of when I think of a "Sprytebyrd", as this is the style of byrd I would be!

This card is going in the mail tomorrow, since it was made for my very special, bestest friend.... that's you, Kim!  :)  I hope that she loves this card as much as I do!  It's her job to find the rest of the words that I have hidden in my puzzle!  I found a puzzle making website, and created this wordfind just for her!  It's full of words to describe what a wonderful person she is.  After much arguing with my computer/printer over getting the sizing on the puzzle and the image correct, I was able to piece the card together.  I've also created my own background paper using a wheel stamp and shimmery silver ink.

I hope to see you join us at Stamptacular this week!  I just know you have a wonderful, amazing, sweet, kind, creative friend that you can make a card for, too!
