Bird has a song

For my "Birds of a Feather" Card Workshop approaching at the end of February, I decided that I was going to play with my Cricut machine and the many cartridges I own. I wanted to make a big bird for the card's focal point and found this particular one on the Home Accents cartridge. The paper is from CTMH, a long ago retired pattern. As I was working on the bird and using the colors from the DP, I found some scraps of musical notes DP, but not enough to make 8 card kits. So now the bird and songs were in my head, I knew I needed a good sentiment to pull it all together! The saying is from Maya Angelou, which I saw on SCS and thought is was perfect!

I am entering this into the blog challenges:

"this and that" on 365 Cards, Day 332 for the "this-yellow" and the "that-cheery".
Belli Challenge #109: P is for ?, purple, pink, pearls
CASE study #24, by Mercy Kerin: used pink, purple and 8x4 card long

Paper Play challenges: #4, layer it up! lots of layers here!
stampin bee's design: #95 use a song, I used the creative liberty of the word sing and song in my sentiment (and the song rockin' robin was in my head as I made this...hehehe!)

Friendship Butterfly



This is my second post of the day- go from 5 months absence to 2 posts in one day!

This butterfly card is called a Joy Fold Card and it is the second card to be featured in my Folding Frenzy card workshop in February. The beauty of this card is that you can customize it to open the way you would like. Put the flap on top, to open upwards, right side or left side, or even on the bottom. You choose!

I used BoBunny Flutterbly collection, chocolate ink, Cricut for the butterfly, yellow rhinestone and lots of glitter, MS seam binding and doily punch. The inside sentiment is Stampin'Up and the butterfly is the BoBunny stamp that matches this collection. The heart pin plays double duty. It adds an element to the card as well as holds the flap shut!

thanks for stopping by today-

Happy Birthday


This card is a style I have loved to do, but is time consuming. It is called the Stair Step Card and it is going to be featured in an upcoming card workshop, February 11th, Folding Frenzy!

I actually broke out the Cricut machine to help make some cuts: the cupcake and the Birthday Blessings sentiment. bo Bunny Papers (Petal Pushers) is the paper line I used. Hero Arts stamp set for the candles, The Twinery pink twine, buttons, glitter and the Cuttlebug HB embossing folder "happy birthday" completes this card.

Enjoy and I will be back with some more cards!
