This Bird is Busy!

I was just reading on a friend's blog how the month of May seems to be as busy or busier than December - and I totally agree! We have birthdays, Mother's Day, Memorial Day, school coming to a close (banquets, end of year stuff, parties...), baseball season begins, graduations...Yup, it's busier than December! But the bright side of that is that May is warmer and sunnier than December!
Since I was in a bright and cheery mood, I decided to use this cute bird from the Birds and Branches set at Lindsay's stamp Stuff on my card today. I printed it out on cream colored card stock. Sometimes I prefer the way my Prisma Markers look on cream card stock (instead of white). I used a cream card base and bazzill for the front. The patterned paper is a double sided piece called Blueberry Groove from Sassafras . I made the distress flower with a scrap and used a big brad for the center. Lately, I have been making cards without sentiments. That way I can pick a card out of my stash and stamp the sentiment on the inside to fit the occasion. I think this could be used for a Thinking of You, Happy Spring, Happy Birthday, Thank You, Congratulations...
Hop on over the the rest of the design team's blogs and see what they have created this week. I think Lindsay might even have a new tutorial for you on her blog...

Hey, might you have been reading my blog?! :>:> May has me swirling!

And I don't know about that weather thing. California seems to have its weather calendar a wee bit mixed up.....its dark and cold and raining today! But, I hear that you have been having nice weather out there. :>

Love the colors, both the cs and the birdie. I haven't played around with my Prismas on white vs. cream. I'll have to try it! :>
