Little birdie thank you.

So happy it's Thursday!!  Tomorrow is the start of the weekend, Mike is home, spring is coming, things are good :) 

I needed a few thank you cards and was totally inspired by that $1.50 stamp set I picked up over the weekend (see Monday's post)


I stamped the long branch in chocolate ink and then colored in the leaves with my green Bics.  I stamped the little birdie in black, right on top of the branch and then stamped a second birdie on a scrap piece of white cardstock.


I colored in the second birdie and trimmed him out, minus the legs, and popped him up with a pop dot.  Because of the weird way I placed the branch, right in the middle of the card, I was having a really difficult time with where to place the sentiment.  Then it hit me, why not use a teeny tiny sentiment and place it so that it looked like a leaf?  So that's exactly what I did!

I'm heading to the store tonight after dinner but that's about it for my Thursday night.  How fantastic is that?  I hope you have a beautiful day today :)  See you tomorrow and thanks for stopping by to see me!!
