Easter Blue Birds


Easter will be here before we know it. I really don't send out but a couple of Easter cards every year, but I do enjoy making them. Aren't these just the cutest little birds! I found out how to do them over at Jean's blog - Stampin Cos It's Fun. Of course I like her card better than mine but at least I found out how to make these cute little critters. Check out her card and instructions, but basically you use a 3/4 inch punch, and the Bird punch from SU. I hand drew the feet and just made the beaks and eyes with "whatever"! The sentiment is from Well Scripted (SU). Let's see....I also used the Square Lattice die, some Nesties, the Bow-Easy, and ribbon. The paper I used was Pacific Point (again), Bashful Blue, White, and some unknown DP.

This is for the challenge over at Skipping Stones Design....sketch. Be sure and check it out if you get a chance.

While you're reading this, I'll be cuddling my new granddaughter, Madeline! My son and his wife had Madeline in February and this will be the first chance I've had to see her! I'm very excited about this - as if you couldn't tell!

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend and I'll be back on Monday.

Oh and one last comment here.............Today is BONI BOUTELLE'S BIRTHDAY!!!!! Happy Birthday Boni! Boni is the head honcho over at Dude Time Doodles. She has wonderful images and just is a joy to work with.

Thanks for stopping by....................
