You are... FMS #124 and CMCC #8

Just sayin'...
This photo was sent my a friend of mine who "escaped winter" by renting a condo in Florida!

Lots of melting and sunshine in Ontario today. Just a taste of the warm weather to come.
My whole entire family is away this week (except the dog, and he doesn't expect three meals a day), so I've had some time to get caught up on some crafting and challenges.

 This card was made to play along with the pretty palette over at Colour Me...!
And the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches:
A couple of new Close to My Heart goodies are involved: the embossed Paper Fundamentals (neutral card stock with a raised design on one side and a pattern on the other) and the cute stamp set "Feathers." The one with the outline was just calling out to be coloured in with Copics!
 I used the Stamps of Life set "youare2kind" for my Dynamic Duos card this week, and it was still sitting on my desk. The sentiment seemed perfect for that crazy feather.
 This would have been a good card to tuck into my son's suitcase. He is off on a cross-country tour in the US, auditioning for graduate school in classical guitar performance. He IS extraordinary.  See/hear him play HERE.  Good music to craft by.

Have a happy week,
