Hello Birdie

 Well, Mary Dawn from A Blogged Named Hero announced that she was extending their first challenge to use your favorite Hero Art stamp/s by a day so here is another card I had made which I'll also enter into the current Hero Arts Monthly Contest.

Paper: cardstock (PTI); designer paper (Teresa Collins - Every Day Moments 6X6 pad); Neenah
Ink: Adirondack - Denim; Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: Hero Arts ( Two Birds - CG152; CL488)
Other: Jute (Michaels)

Not sure if you've noticed but this is the second card I have posted using this particular designer paper, and I actually have a third one for later, and all three cards were made with three 6X6 sheets, and I still have some over to make a fourth!  Now, even I am proud of myself!

That sentiment frame normally has a bit of a flourish on either side but I did cut it off for this design.  I also stamped the birdie on some of the patterned paper for a pop of non-blue!  The sentiment panel is popped up with some dimensional foam.  I finally wrapped a piece of jute around the card.  I think it makes a nice masculine card.

It's no secret that I love all bird, butterfly and flower stamps from Hero Arts, so I could not resist making this card.

It's been a beautiful day here today.  Lisa and I went and worked out at the gym and then went to go and do some shopping as my lovely friend is trying to redo her craft room!  I hope that once it's done she posts some pictures to share with you! (No pressure Lisa!).  It's going to look great!

Wishing you all a fabulous rest of your day!
