Chirping Birds

Happy Thursday!

Bird week, day four!  isn't this fun?  lol

"My favorite weather is bird chirping weather"
Stamps: revi devi digital
sentiment: CG
Paper: SU! cs, MME dps
Ink: Prisma marker
Other: kaisercraft gems, vintage seam binding,
SU! slit punch, packaging material (scallops),
MS leaf punch (leaves), Nesties, tree branch.

I wanted to try to use this cute whimsical image in a different way....vintage/shabby chic.  I really like how it turned out...hope you do too!

We have a new challenge for you for the next two week at Aud Sentiments; make a summertime project/card!  Our sponsor is...

We are experiencing a heatwave right now, yuck!  I like to hide in the air conditioning on days like this, but yesterday we had to go out on some unexpected appointments, then the car was over-heating...not sure what that was about.   Hopefully just something minor.   I'm not quite ready to go car shopping yet, though the thought of buying a car instead of another mini van somewhat appeals to me.  I like this new phase of having older kids!  lol

Enjoy your Thursday!
