Bird on a Branch

I decided that I haven't been posting much SU! these days, so I thought I would make a SUO card today. What is SUO you ask? Stampin' Up! Only. Very rarely do I make something that is completely SU! because I sneak in different paper, glitter, etc. but today I made it a point to use everything SU! even down to the scissors I used! LOL!

I used today's Sketch Challenge over at SCS. I needed to flip the sketch to have it accomodate this particular set. I love the coordinating papers. It is pretty straightforward. I did have to add the sentiment piece to the top because what is underneath is crooked! LOL! Often times my designs get little additions here or there to cover up my mistakes.

I want to say thank you to all of you who said such nice things about my new photo. My old photo was taken for the Dirty Dozen and I have used it ever since. I thought it was time to freshen things up a bit.

I have been getting quite a few questions about some of the things I do on my cards, so look for a Q and A coming up in the next few days as well as a tutorial! Thanks for fluttering by!

I love all your cards, but as an SU demo, I ESPECIALLY love it when you do SUO cards!

Ilove your card. And your photo IS very flattering. I am sorry I missed it when you changed it but I was looking at your post! The SUO cards are nice as most of what I have is SU stuff, but I appreciate everything you do.

Kelly, this is just beautiful, love the SUO! I love how we can clean up our mistakes so nicely~ most of the time I find the 'cover-up' better than the original! :)

Gorgeous SUO card Kelly! I like to make a few SUO cards each week but it's hard not to sneak some sort of contraband on the

Love the glittered edge!! So pretty!
