Fall Bird Card !!!

 Happy Friday, Thanks for stopping by. It's pretty chilly here. But at least we didn't get any snow. Feeling bad for the ones that did. Well unless they love snow.

 I have a love/hate relationship with it. I Love to see It come down and love to see the Trees covered.  But that's about as far as the Love goes. I hate being cold and hate to get out in it. 

Wish I had a place in Florida I could go to. Yes, I would pack my bags and leave right after Christmas and come back sometime around March. Yeah, That sounds nice.

 O.K. Cindy, Snap out of it. Get back to reality and stop thinking about Florida.

So, While I'm sitting here with my cup of Hot Coffee and my Snuggie wrapped around me, I would like to share the card that I made for my Beautiful Mom for her birthday.

A lot of times when I am going to make a Card, I will sketch Idea's on paper. When I come up with an Idea. I make a list of the Items I use. Well, In this case I must have thrown my list away. Because It's no where to be found. That's what I get for cleaning. 

But I do know that the Bird Stamp is from Stampin Up called Spring Song. Of course I wanted it to look like fall. So I added some leaves. Can't remember what stamp set that is from and the sentiment stamp is also from S.U. called Best Yet.

 I used two different Woodgrain Folders. One from Tim Holtz and the other from Cuttlebug called Forest Branches.

I also used a Cricut Cartridge to cut out the frame around the bird. Not sure which one I used. I used a scallop punch and two circle punches.

To make the end of the banner I just used the corner of a Square Punch.

 Sponged the Sky in Bashful Blue and Summer Sun. I think I colored the bird in Bashful Blue, Really Rust and Close to Cocoa and the leaves in more Mustard. I then added Sheer Blue Ribbon and Copper colored cord.

 I do Love that Designed Cardstock. I'm thinking it's from Stampin Up.

I do really appreciate you stopping by and would love to visit you. If you leave a comment. Please add our blog address so that I can.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my Card. Happy Day to you.
