Birdie Birthday (Hello Love)

Happy Wednesday!  It’s going to be a great day.  Yesterday I got together with my Mom, and two of my stampin’ students (friends), who all signed up for Paper Pumpkin and we had a fabulous afternoon putting our cards together.  It was really nice to be able to stamp along with them and have a relaxing time and great conversation.  We’re going to get together every month to do our kits.  Another excuse to stamp-n-chat.  What could be better than that?  🙂

It’s time for a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, and Kim Singdahlen is our host this week.  She’s already an “old pro” at making wonderful, user-friendly sketches.  I LOVE her sketch this week.  I had ideas the moment I saw it and here’s the idea that I went with:

FMS184-For-the-BirdsSome of the fabulous products used in making this card are retiring in June…   Hello Love Hostess Set (image and sentiments) and Positively Chevron background stamp.  The Chevron was heat embossed with clear embossing powder, and I love the look it creates:  a perfectly matched darker hue.  In addition, the 2013-2105 In Colors will retire.  Coastal Cabana is on the top of my list of favorite colors.  I love these, and I will definitely be keeping these in my stash.  If you don’t have them yet, I suggest you get them now before it’s too late.



The following products used on this card will retire.  Please note that the sequins are on sale at 50% off the listed price (only $2.48) and the Stampin’ Write 2013-2015 In Color Markers are 40% off ($8.97).  For the full list of retiring products, CLICK HERE.


We hope you’ll take a moment to hop over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look at what the ‘Clean Team’ has whipped up for you using Kim’s awesome sketch, and that you’ll play along with us this week!

    LOVE your scene. The cute little birds, the word bubble, the happy day sun – and the sprinkling of star sequins – it’s perfect!

    These little birdies are adorable. And I love how you’ve arranged all of the elements on this card. I am SO going to miss Coastal Cabana. I’m optimistic we’ll see it again with the next color update — there are too many of us that love it.

    Oh, this is such a happy card! The chevron looks so rich and those birds are just the most adorable! I’ll miss Coastal Cabana too, but this year I’ve told myself not to stock up because I tend to get a bit carried away 🙂

    Cindy, this is such a CUTIE PATOOTIE card! I did not buy this set, but I am slapping myself for not doing so. This is the cutest rendition of adorable birdies I’ve ever seen. Love your coloring and love what you did with the Chevron and the splash of ink at the bottom. Having those little darlings on that arrow is just perfect! Love it! Thanks for sharing and so glad you had a nice “stamp n chat” (love that term) with your Mom and friend. Hugs! Hope to see you in SLC in July?

    This is so adorable Cindy! I love how you colored the birdies. Plus the sun and the talk bubble are perfect matches for each other! I so miss stamping with a group so I envy you the time you spend with your stamping friends. 🙂
