Happy Bird Thank You Card

Oh my goodness. I am almost embarrassed to post - it has been so long! At least I can honestly say it was on purpose. I was so busy making things to sell or give as gifts for Christmas that I decided to focus on only that for a while.  Since then, I have had some pretty serious dental work, and I definitely wasn't in the creating mood!! Now things are back to normal (ummm.......as normal as they can be in my life! lol).

So this will be a very quick post. I made a thank you card for a wonderful friend who gave me a fabulous Christmas gift of  subscriptions to 2 magazines I love. How sweet was that?! So I remembered that I had this darling HAPPY BIRD digi stamp that was a freebie from Doodle Pantry.  It turns out that this week the theme of their challenge is to simply use one of their images! So I am trying to post this quickly, because I have to get this in on time! So here is my card:

                                                                      
Isn't this birdie adorable?  The designer cardstock is from My Mind's Eye "Fine and Dandy Girl" collection. The diecut is a Spellbinder's Nesties Label. I directly inked it with several pink inks that I played with until I got what I wanted.  I printed the birdie, colored with Copics, cut out, and attached with Popdots. The sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly. I stamped it on a diecut in my stash, and attached it with 3D Dots too.  The "so happy" phrase is from one of the Lost and Found Two sets. I distressed and inked the edges of the dp and added some rhinestones for some bling.

Now here is the inside of the card, which finishes it off perfectly for my friend.

The "for being" are alpha stickers from my stash, and the "so tweet" is a cute little individual stamp from Snag 'Em Stamps.

I hope you like this card. As I said, I am entering it (at the last second!) to Doodle Pantry Challenge 19.  They have the cutest stamps there. I am going to frequent their shop, no doubt!  Thanks for stopping by, and I will be back much more quickly this time!
