cheerio!

This is a pre-scheduled post

Thursday! :) One more day until I get to go home!

I never know if I'll have internet when I'm on a trip... I'm not a big fan of paying for internet (even when it's not my monies...) It's the principle! So I apologize for being super behind on commenting.


I love birds. I love silhouettes. I love music print. And so a card was born. :)

For the bird, I mirror stamped it. And then I realized it was too light for my taste. So I decided since I wanted the birds to be the same color, I went ahead and used glitter to cover it all up. Problem solved.  I really love this cooper glitter -- and will have to remember to pull it out again.

I love using the Cheerio sentiment from  Fancy Phrases. It's as if one bird is saying "Cheerio" to the other one. And the cheerio seems like something a bird would say... Well, at least in my mind they say things like Cheerio.  ;-)

The base is just a little bit of vellum. I like playing with texture and I won't lie. I needed something to use on the bottom of the base because I scored a piece of cardstock before realizing it wasn't a full A2 card size. Whoops... So what do you do? You fix it by adding some fun paper on the base.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the week!

I'm quite sure that birds speak to each other, so they might very well be saying "Cheerio".

Great card!
