Tweet Spring Birthday

The other day I was sitting on our screened-in porch when I heard a clutch of baby birds peeping away. I quietly watched for awhile and noticed the parents bringing food. There are a lot of new babies this spring. Are you one of those who celebrates a birthday in the spring? 





I colored this tweet little guy with Copic markers, matching his breast color to the polka dots of the scrap patterned paper. I love Reverse Confetti's The Tweet Life stamps and Confetti Cuts for birthday cards. And for spring!

Playing with Felt

The other day I happened across my felt stash container and realized that I hadn't created anything with felt in quite some time. No time like the present, right? Before I forget for another few months! Ha!




I began this project with this piece of Pebbles' Walnut Grove floral paper from my scrap bin and matched felt colors to it. Then I picked some dies...the 'hello' die is from Reverse Confetti, the 3D flower from My Favorite Things and the leaves are from Lifestyle Crafts. I also added a little burlap because I love how it looks with flowers. The last little accent, an antique ladybug pin. I found those at a local antique store years ago. It's perfect for this flower card, don't you think?

Another Monkey Birthday Card

Today I have another birthday card to share with you that also has a cutesy monkey on it. This one was created with a combination of goodies from my craft room...dies from Reverse Confetti and Fun Stampers Journey along with stamps from Papertrey Ink and left over patterned paper from one of my Scraptasic Club kits. 




Looks like all of the products and tools used to make this project could have come from the same company or kit, don't they?  Once in a while I love to simply play and use whatever I have and what's left in the scrap bin. This card is the result. Hope it makes you smile.

Monkey Business

How about a little Monkey Business? Reverse Confetti style? This little chimp is just too cute not to create lots of playful cards with! And perfect for practicing my Copic skills...which require a lot more practice! Ha! 





After I colored monkey, I brought him over to my scrap bin and matched him up with this striped patterned paper. I love the combo. Then I pulled some card stock from the scrap bin as well for the banners. A little dash of sequins to give the card a more celebratory feel and we have one adorable party animal card!
