Love birds

Happy Tuesday!

I wanted to share these cards from 2peas.  They were fun to make – simple, but fun.  And such a great way to use scraps…

The birds are actually from THIS punch.  I just cut the little heart from their mouth.  I look forward to having this bird carry many things – hearts, flowers, tiny envelopes, etc.


And, I get a lot of questions about those Chocolate notecards.  They are actually hard to find now, but I just love the color…


I have been answering more questions HERE… hoping to get caught up tonight.  Also, we all have a lot of fun over on Twitter.  (I enjoy it so much more than Facebook.)  You can find me HERE.

OK… off to spend the day in the wonderful weather here in Florida!  And, if you are ever in the area, you should visit She Scrapbooks – what an amazing store.  I stopped in there to see it and happened to run into Donna Downey teaching there.  Adore that girl.

Have a good one…

    I love your cards, and want that punch! I had bookmarked the She Scrapbooks shop a couple weeks ago to go to when we go down to FL next week to see Spring Training. If I go to 5 games with him–then I’m due one scrapbooking shop—– right? That was about the ratio in AZ last March. Love your blog.

    Your bird punch cards are so cute. Your so creative thinking ways to
    use this bird punch in so many ways:)

    I am enjoying reading all the answers on formspring.

    I hope the good weather follows you back. I am so tired of the gray skies and snow.

    Great idea using the bird punch to hold the message. Love the look of the card, too! Enjoyed looking at sites that you recommend to us, too. Great video at HA today! I’ve been hesitant to use the digital images. Now I’m ready thanks to your video. Hope the weather improves before you return home!

    Love these little birds. I saw that punch on clearance at Michael’s last week but I didn’t think I would use it. After seeing these I ran back there today and they had one left Yeah! It was with the Valentine’s clearance. Thanks for all of the wonderful ideas you share each day.

  33. Thanks for being such a constant source of inspiration! Now I will look at punches on a different light. I used to think of them as cheating but, now I see that they can give your more opportunities for making multiples. You rock!!!!! So happy you are having a great well deserved vacation. Hugs,Kathy

    What a neat idea with the bird punch! Love it when I hear new ways to make the punch a little different. Thanks.
