Be Free

It's time for a new challenge at Time Out!!! With Time Out Challenge #162, we are challenged to be FREE! 

We are generously sponsored by Visible Image Stamps.

Our wonderful Guest Designer is Joanna of Jo-Jo's Spot. Joanna's style is largely CAS. Her creativity and her eye for design design is fantastic. Treat yourself to a stroll through her blog where you are sure to be inspired.

I grew up in a family full of people who are known to break into song at any given moment, often with the same song at the same time, in the same key. When I saw this challenge, The Beatles Free As A Bird started playing in my head. It's a common phrase, but it was the song that inspired me. With that said, I started humming, and broke out some watercolors. I colored a sky, added some birds from STAMPlorations Trendy Birds 2 along with a sentiment from the same set. I die cut the watercolored panel with an Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die, mounted it on a white card base, and my card was done. 

Please hop on over to the Time Out Blog to see the wonderful creations that Joanna and our Design Team came up with to inspire you. Come play with us!

I'm a Beatles fan too, what a great memory to treasure all your life. A family that sings together sticks together, luck girl. Your card fits the cherished souvenir. The perfect clear blue sky for those birds. Thank you for your kind words, very touching, ...and having me as your GD! xx
