A Happy Bluebird

It feels good to finally get around to inking some stamps received long ago.  Owl Be Thinking Of You from The Craft's Meow was an incentive set for me, after I'd had a card published using their stamps.  This set has been in my stash for a few years now, and, well, here is its debut on my blog!


I made this for a dear friend's birthday several months ago.


The sentiment is from an {old} Close To My Heart set, Flower Pot.  A friend gave me that set, when she was paring down her stash.  It's really cute, and I'm glad I hung on to it - even after paring down my own stash a year ago.

Thanks so much for coming by today!  I love when you visit.



Stamps: sentiment - Flower Pot - Close To My Heart; tree, bird, birdhouse - Owl Be Thinking Of You - The Craft's Meow Paper: blue and green patterns - SU; white - PTI Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Fibers: twine - Creative Impressions Accessories & Tools: pink gem - Queen & Co.; Copic markers

This is SUCH a cute card, Colleen. I LOVED receiving it :D!! It's still in a place of honor on my kitchen windowsill even if it *did* arrive a few months ago. The colors are so pretty!!!

Have a great day, my friend!

This is sweet as can be! I adore it to bits! I love inking up stamps that have not been used yet! I need more crafty time and I am afraid with summer coming on fast that won't happen, but I can always wish right! Sweetness!
