Blue Birds

Hi There
I hope the weather where you are is lovely.  The sun didn’t shine for long, it’s back to cold, wet, windy and dreary here. I hope those few hot days we had in May wasn’t our summer.

I am so in love with my SU Bird Punch. You may see a lot of these fabulous birds. I’m sure I’ve seen something similar to this card before or maybe it’s just one of the many ideas I’ve had in my head after longing for this punch for so long. I’ve cut out a window with a SB circle then embossed my base card. An EK Success border punch and organza ribbon were used to simulate the roof of the birdhouse. My lovely sister in law Norma sent me these adorable tatted flowers some time ago. They are so tiny it‘s taken me a while to figure out how to use them so they wouldn‘t get lost. I’ve backed them with punched flowers which seems to highlight them a bit. I think Norma will be happy to see them on her birthday card.

Check out my candy here.

Whatever you have planned for the weekend I hope it'll be Amazing!

  3. We have a beautiful day today not forcast l might add but its an added bonus, your card is so lovely those birds are so adorable and the hole you have created with one of the birds peeping out or in is just amazing your so talented:)x

  4. I'm liking how you are using this punch. The little one peeking out of the birdhouse is inspired designing. The colors are so fresh & cheery.The tatted flowers are perfecto on this...just the right touch on the green branches. The roofline treatment was a clever idea as well. It's raining in SC today too, not cold, just humid. We need the rain, so not complaining. TFS
