I have a few projects to get out of the way so I have been mass producing cards for an order. This is one of the Birthday cards in my batch. I like to keep the layout nice and simple so that it is easier to make more than one card at a time. I used Pretty in Pink, Berry Bliss designer series paper, Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White cardstock. The little bird is a little large for the 1 3/8″ circle punch so I paper pieced the bird after I watercolored him in with Soft Sky and Blue Bayou ink.
I really love this layout and color scheme. It almost makes me want to keep this batch of cards to myself. Well I’m on to the next project. Tomorrow Colin has his Pediatric Opthamologist appointment. We will find out if his patching is improving his eye sight and whether he needs to continue patching his good eye. I can’t believe we have been patching for 2 years now. Time surely does fly. I actually forget he wears and eye patch. It’s such a normal part of our lives. We do get a lot of questions from kids and adults about it. Colin is actually pretty good at explaining that he has a lazy eye and that he has to patch the good eye to make his weaker eye see. I usually just say that he has Amblyopia and he continues from there.
