You Old Bird

I have been working on a bigger project for a few days but took some time out today to make a card for one of our friends from church.  My girlfriend is having a 50th birthday party for him.

So you know I had to do a card making fun of his age...



Inkadinkado -- Bird Assortment stamp set, for image and sentiment, colored w/markers
Tim Holtz -- Wood grain embossing folder
Buttons are some old ones I found at a Flea Market
I scored two lines above and below the sentiment and buttons using the scorpal

The weather has once again become very warm, can't take being outside for long but they are saying by mid week we will be in the upper 70's, and I love that!!!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and see what I have been up to,

Connie
