A little birdie told me. . .

  I have not stopped giving thanks for you and remembering you in my prayers.

 Mixing It Up With CHACB Challenge #10:

 This week the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog is changing it up...with a blog hop! Challenge #10 is ready at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog but we are doing things a bit differently this time! We are doing a week-long blog hop with STENCIL GIRL! 

Each day this week you are invited to visit the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog, see the fabulous designs of the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Team, and then you are invited to visit the StencilGirl Talk Blog to see what their team is doing! For the blog hop order, see the end of the post.
Now, for the challenge!


Challenge #10 Spray It! Ink It! Paint It! Smear It! Emboss It!

Show us your inner mixed media diva! Use spray mists, inks, paints, modeling paste, embossing powder, pastels, chalk, and whatever messy media you can find! Let's dig into that hoard, pull out some of that "messy stuff," and use it up! There is a mess-maker hiding in all of you! Let her/him out to play!

Remember, you have two weeks to play in the new challenge! Challenge #10 closes Sunday, June 29 at midnight PT. Link up your project here to Challenge #10.

One talented participant will receive this prize, donated by Stencil Girl and WorldWin Papers.



Project Description

WorldWin Papers, including their lovely vellum, provided the foundation for this card, along with two Stencil Girl stencils, the Chevron Doily Mask (which I think looks like feathers) and Song Birds.  It was crafted for my dad for Father's Day. A little birdie didn't have to tell me he's the best dad: I already knew! I'm so thankful to the Lord for my father and for his steadfast love all of these years (including those where I was really quite hard to like, let alone, love!)
