Carla, I have yours 😍
Isn't this the cutest???!!

 For this sweet card, I used the bird from the Kit of the Month April 2017 ~ "be my bird"
 I stamped him with Memento black and colored him with a few Copics in a flicking motion to resemble feathers...I'm ok with how he turned out, but, it could have been better..then I fussy cut the entire image. (Yes, it took a good while to do 💪)
 I used pop dots to adhere him to this piece of card stock I had already cut out (Sizzix dies I think)
 The sentiment is from ______ I have no idea which kit I grabbed it from...but, when I figure it out, I will jump back here and add that info for you...sorry, but I do this A LOT!!
 I have a bowl of stamps that need to go back into their kit.
 I have started writing on the backing of that stamp, which kit I got it from...
This card is a 4 1/4 X 4 1/4. A good size for this guy I think.
Next up is a little fun!!! 


I stamped the flamingo from the Kit of the Month July 2013~"stand tall"~ in Tim Holtz's newest color
 Kitsch flamingo, and picked raspberry..., then used clear embossing powder!! 
SO cute!! 
The frame is from Impression Obsession, and the flowers are from Prima.
 I love using Gina Marie enamel dots, and scatter them on my cards, and I think they are still around $3.00 a sheet. 💖
OK, then...that's it from me this month!! 
Thanks for getting all the way to the end!!!
