Life Happens

Good rainy day! We got some much needed rain here in SW MO, unfortunally, it hasn't lasted very long. It's still a gloomy day out and very humid now. Hope you are having a great Wednesday.

Today I'm sharing an "almost" case that was posted on Stampin Connection by Jenn, her blog is . I just loved this card and knew I had to try one. This card is a "Z fold", very easy to do. Cut your cardstock at 5.5 x 11 then score at 4" and 6 3/4". I did change up the colors a bit and used a different sentiment than Jenn did. The card folded up is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.

Card details are:
Stamp Sets: Aviary and Full of Live
Cardstock: Whisper White and Basic Black
Ink: Marina Blue, Daffodil Delight, Concord Crush, Poppy Parade and Black Stazon
Misc: Stampamajig

That's it from me today. Have a great day. And THANKS so much for stoppin by.

Happy Stampin,

P.S. I just now realized that I didn't put any "BLING" on my card...I am going to add some to the top of the bird cage. GRRRR!!! Hate it when I forget something as important as "BLING"....LOL

Lois- Really cute! I like how you have the cages slightly tipped! And even if it doesn't have bling it's still great!

Super cute! I've never done that fold, but it doesn't sound too hard. The colors are great, too.

This is so stinkin' cute! I would have never thought to use the bird cages stacked like that.
