A Little Birdie Told Me.....

......That just when you think your kids have it all together, they poop on you. I am too upset to even go into it. And after the crappy "phone" day I had-contractors, salesmen, the gas/electric company (they un-subbed me from the electronic payment list and my bill is now late)-and the one woman who sounded like Selma Simpson but was as dumb as Homer and my phone dying on me twice....well, it wasn't fun........

I am now in the between period of the third OT for the Wings game. Peeing my pants, trying to balance the books, and wishing I had stuck my head in the sand. I had hoped for an outside day before the storms come tomorrow. Not to be Cherie.

Red card-covered with a white piece a bit smaller that is punched on the opposing corners and inked along the edges. Paste it up. Layer a blue patterned piece in the middle and a scalloped scrap along the top and bottom. Take another scrap and stamp your birdie (at least this one won't poop on you) then punch the top and bottom and ink these edges too. Center on the pattered piece but towards the side. Pop dot.

Take a small scrap and make into a faux envelope. Add a button that is tied with jute and affix it to the top right. I love this punch and don't use it enought-in fact I should find a way to have them out more instead of dumped in a cloth bin under stuff.


  1. Love the little touches here (esp. that envelope). Can't go wrong with a bird card!

  2. love your card, Jan! The colors, the mini envelope, the punches - it's great! Hope it's a better day today! keep smiling!

  3. Your card is very cheery inspite of your day. I like it. Hope tomorrow is a better day.



Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
