Got Sketch 113...Happy Bird!

I'm finally finished with the worst of my reports!  Well, technically anyway, I still have lots to do.  But, I won't be spending all weekend in the office, so, that's something I guess!!  I need to catch up on what I've been up to now though!

In the meantime, I've been fighting with my blog design.  Is anyone else having issues?  I'm not sure if it's me, but, I'm trying to keep it simple until I figure it out!

I've been desperately trying to keep up with birthdays this month, it is just one after another!!  These cards were done for my MIL and her friend Barbara.  I sent them both the new Kraft Color Ready Borders from CTMH as part of their birthday gifts and wanted to demonstrate how great they were.  I still love them, but, won't be adding any more color to them unless its black or a shade of brown!!  I tried everything, but, the colors just don't come out right.  But, how CUTE is this little Happy Bird digi stamp from Doodle Pantry!!!!  And the best part is he's FREE!!!  I loved him so much, I bought a birthday image of him as well and have a few more I plan to get in the near future, he reminds me of my little bird and you just can't help but smile when you see him!

I've been super short on time so I used the Got Sketch? 113 sketch for inspiration for both cards and used scraps from my "Family Ties" layout that were still on my desk....I'm still trying to "think spring" despite the daily forecast of snow! ;O)

Paper:  My Mind's Eye Pretty Please
Cardstock:  Juniper, Tulip, and Colonial White
Stamps: Doodle Pantry Happy Bird and Card Chatter-Birthday

Other:  CTMH brads in Juniper and Tulip, EKSuccess Corner Rounder (Scalloped border inside card), CTMH Kraft Color Ready Borders, Crop-A-Dile Corner punch, Copics, and Cuttlebug/Nestabilities.
