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 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! :)
