The Free As A Bird Episode

I did something goofy while in Las Vegas.  Before going to bed Friday night, I set the alarm on my iPad for 6:50 AM.  OnStage was the next day and I wanted to make sure I didn't sleep in and miss it!  Well, when the alarm went off the next morning, I struggled to wake up, but I did manage to get out of bed.  I stood there swaying with fatigue for a few seconds, thinking through the fog, "Something doesn't feel right."  Then it hit me - my iPad clock was still on Eastern time, not Pacific, and so it was really 3:50 AM, not 6:50!  Glad I realized that before making it all the way out of the hotel 😂 I would have had my choice of tables at OnStage, wouldn't I?

I took a break from Christmas to use Bird Ballad suite products to make a simple card.  It looks complicated, but it really isn't - a small amount of coloring and a bit of fussy cutting with the Designer Series Paper taking center stage.  The piece of Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim accented with a Bird Ballad Trinket adds such a dainty, vintage touch!
