Bird is the Word

Hi, everyone!
Just a quick post to share a quick card I made today. This is a Hambo Stamp called Dirty Bird. Every time I see him, I can't help but think "spring cleaning", and that is not too far off! We had gorgeous weather the past week and now it is dipping back down, again, because of the wonderful polar vortex. It isn't nearly as cold here (in SC) as it is in my home state of Michigan, where it's snowing, but a fifteen degree drop from one day to the next, well......ick. :(
Anyhow, here is my card. I am going to keep praying for Spring weather to stay! :)


I used some new-to-me papers that a cyber friend had sent me. They are very bright and flowery, and they have the coolest texture to them, almost like a fabric. I used an Impression Obsession die, Fence Die.  I also used two Stampin Up punches; 1-3/8" Circle and Scalloped Circle. The little flower was created with some EK Success punches. A couple of rhinestones from my stash, my last two pink ones, actually, add just a touch of bling in the corner.

That's it today! I hope your week is going well and the sun is shining bright for you!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!
