Silly Bird-Day

I had five birthday cards to send out this month and as I was going through my stash I realized I was really running short on those - so you may be seeing a few cards for birthdays coming up soon.

I can't think of anything cuter to use on a birthday card other than this little bird from The Alley Way Stamps.  I used Birds of a Feather for the silly guy and the sentiment - and then added the paper pieced tree from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood.  The dots on the trees were done with the Wreathed in Love set.  I actually stamped a little "grass" on top of the mint colored ground but it didn't show up very much.  Oh, and speaking of the mint 'ground'..... I didn't have any paper that color but did have an ink pad.  I cut the ground and then rubbed the ink pad over it.  Instant colored paper.  Some clouds were lightly sponged in and then went ahead and added a couple more fluffy clouds with a die.  Glossy Accents were added to the eyes.


I'll enter this in the Be Inspired Challenge for The Alley Way Stamps.  I was inspired by the circles and pink and mint colors.

OFF TO THE WILD BLUE YONDER...........
On a different subject now.........I'm going to be leaving town tomorrow and won't be back until October 1st.  I'm flying to visit a dear blogging friend - Tammy.  Check out her cute and creative blog.  I see a little shopping on the horizon, maybe some creating, and a TON of laughs for sure!  I'm super excited about this little adventure and of course getting to meet Tammy!!!!!    Jim and Rambo will be holding down the fort here once again - but this time I HAVE stocked up on paper plates!  I'll see everyone around the first of October..........

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