CTS302 Birdie Birthday

Happy Friday, peeps!  Are you close to having all your Christmas prep done?!  I am getting there--got a lot done yesterday, have company coming today, so this will be short and sweet!  My cousin's wife is celebrating her 60th birthday a few days after Christmas, and since my craft room is a hot mess and I honestly feel a bit "rusty" in my stamping, I went clean and simple with CAS(E) this Sketch's current sketch:


and some new Flora and Fauna stamps I got recently:


I stamped this little bird in Stazon and watercolored it with Blueberry Bushel and Balmy Blue inks, fussy-cut it out and popped it up; the sentiment is from Best Birds, and the numbers are from a little SU set called Simple Serif:


My gingham paper is from Lawn Fawn and I added some linen thread as a tiny little accent!  Thanks for popping in today!

Dana, Wayne and Cass went to Longwood Gardens a couple nights ago...it was perfect weather (it's pouring here right now!) and the only complaint was that there wasn't enough time to see everything!


The ride home was way past bedtime:


Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

What a pretty little bird, LeAnne! I love the blue with the neutral checks and how you've popped that little 60 in there! Wishing you peaceful thoughts this Christmas.

It doesn't look like you skipped a beat at your stamping, LeAnne! This card is perfect and I think it's very pretty! Love the paper and the pops of blue from your bird and sentiment! Awesome picture from Longwood Gardens! I really need to go there someday! The place looks absolutely amazing! :)
