Happy Birthday!

A little birdie to great you. . .

on your special day!

Hello Everyone!!!

Hope you are all well.  It has been so long since I have had a chance to post.  My poor craft room sent out a search team. . .  It's been utter craziness here with work and the beginning of the new school year, soccer, basketball and all the activities that start in September . . .  

Just a quick post to share a card I made with Pagoda, one of my favorite Cricut carts.  The colors are inspired by the beautiful fall colors that are suddenly showing up on all the trees around here.  I was going for a zen look (lol!) with  just pop of color on the red bird.  The photo was taken with my phone so it's not that great, but    I think it captured the feeling I was going for.  I inked the edges with my Copics, used lots of pop dots, ribbon from Michaels and Glossy Accents on the bird.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you all have a terrific week!
