Hello Birdie

Today I have the house to myself!  Now, this doesn't happen very often, so I plan on enjoying the freedom to do whatever I want.  So, of course, I'm starting the day with a card (no surprise there) and then plan on playing with my new flowers and then .... hmmmm, another card??!!  Probably!

Today I wanted to honor SCS "Queen for the Day" - Mary Marsh.  Mary has a gallery full of beautiful and inspiring cards.  I decided to CASE a Christmas card that she made last fall (click the link to see), using the same layout, design and punches.  I only changed the colors and a few small details to make this into a spring card.  Hope you like ... and hope Mary likes it too!  Congrats Mary ... enjoy your reign!

"Hello Birdie"

Stamp:  Pendant Park - sentiment (SU!)
Paper:  Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Comfort Cafe DP (SU!)
Ink:  Cajun Craze (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  2-Step Bird punch, MS lattice border punch, 3/8" Soft Suede Taffeta ribbon, Everyday Enchantment brad, Stamp-a-ma-jig, paper piercing tool, sticky strips, glue, adhesives, and dimensionals

I cut out all the pieces, punched the bird and border and then assembled the card.  I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement of the sentiment.

The large main panel and the bird's wing, are popped up to add depth.  I used the paper piercing tool to make the hole for the brad (and bow) to thread through - my hole punch just wouldn't go through the ribbon.  Easy and fun card to make - just love this new DP from SU!

Wow, Loll, you've outdone yourself. That is a gorgeous card in every way. A wonderful CASE - I'm sure Mary will love it.

I'm itching to get into my craft room and catch up on some challenges but the weather is going to change tomorrow and I have so much gardening to do.
