For The Birds

Ever have a day that was just for the birds? 
 If you do, now there's a stamp set for it, too!!  
(Ha, ha!!)
So anyway, I was watching TV and 
wanted to be productive at the same time, 
and I came up with these cards.  
I just love how they turned out.  
That's how I get away with watching TV 
sometimes . . . "See all the great 
cards I got done this evening, honey?"
(my hubby is not a fan of TV - so I 
have to come up with reasons to watch sometimes)
I got crazy and cut everything out first and then
 began to put it all together, so no matter 
what image I decided to use, 
it had to fit into that size of rectangle 
I had already cut out.  Don't ask why.  
I don't know why I did that. 
I was probably enjoying my TV show.
Guess what?  I'm still on my watercoloring kick; 
I used the blender pens to color in these cute images.
I'm just crazy about how the Tasteful 
Trim was used for the bottom of the cards.  
I just cut out lots of different patterns, 
then held them up to each other 
until I thought it looked cool and then laid it on the card.  
I trimmed them down to size once 
adhered - and there you go!!
The embossing folder that was used 
for the cloudy sky?  
I have no idea what it was called.  I believe it's retired now.  
Looks cool, though, doesn't it?  
I kept it because I thought it was a great folder.  
I don't very often keep things once they retire.  
This was a keeper, though.
What was used: 
Card stock - Garden Green (#102584);
Accessories - Big Shot (#113439);
save time and money at my online store.  I'm here to help.
Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'!


  1. Cool embossing folder! So neat that you can work in front of the telly. It's a cute collection. You ready to put out a fantastic card for the first AAA Cards game? Please cut the image square, I've found that it's the best for getting a large image displayed in blogger posts. Hope you are enjoying the Spring (Summer is starting in Tucson 90's already) hugs, Victoria

    1. Thanks so much! I really appreciate your comments. Yep, I've got the first card all ready to upload. I'll be doing it tonight. I wish we had 90 degrees outside! That's a heat wave for Northern Ohio!! We only see that in the deep heat of summer!


Thank you for leaving a comment. I love hearing from you!
