Happy "Bird-day"

I recently bought a set of stamps from Hero Arts that I just love. So I had to stop Christmas cards and make a Birthday card. The background paper is from a paper stack that came from Hobby Lobby. I also used decorative staples. I have had these for a while but have a real hard time using them. Is there anybody else out there that has them and has used them? Would love to see some ideas. I have some really cute ones that I would love to use. Hope you have a wonderful day.

"Merry" Sketch

I recevied this wonderful collection of things from my sister. Isn't she sweet, she is also very lucky. She lives in Florida and has many resources which to buy from. JoAnns (we have one in Newport News but it is nothing to brag about, pitiful); Michaels, AC Moore (we have one in Virginia Beach but that is a day trip) stamp and scarpbooks stores galore, (we have a nice one in Williamsburg and Yorktown). So you see she is nice enough to keep me in mind while she is shopping. She sent me Cuttlebug templates, a Hero Arts set, Technique Tuesday stamps, stamped Bellas and new white cardstock from Stampin Up that is wonderful and didn't even includes a bill, LOL.
I also added a new blogger The Stampin Soldier. (I have others I need to add I have marked in my favorites right now, I am slowly learning how to do all this blogging stuff). She has a wonderful sketch on her site and I used the cute litte birds in the Hero Arts set to make this card. The Merry Christmas stamp is one I got from my sister last year. This is mounted on the white card stock from Stampin Up. Be sure to visit The Stampin Soldier, I admire her for the job that she does in serving our country. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
P.S. Thanks to my DH for taking the picture of the card. I did the picture of the "loot" and it is a little out of focus.

A Warm Hello

We had a young lady that visited my Sunday School class this past Sunday who is going through a difficult time. I wanted to let her know how much we enjoyed having her and that she was in my thoughts and prayers, so I made this card to send to her. I used my new stamps from Lizzie Anne's High Hellos. I love this set. The background paper is from Embellishment Paper made by Making Memories and the warm hello is from a stamp set from Hero Arts. The ribbon I had in my stash - it is kind of like paper you can never have too much. I hope this RAK gives her a smile on her face and in her heart.
