Can I have those birds

This image by Stamping Bella is called Birds Decorating Trees - I WANT birds like that. I love Christmas, and I love having my tree up and decorating almost every room in my house with something Christmassy, but boy would I love it if I had clever little birds to do it for me, especially the lights, they are such a pain to try and get around the tree, and my tree is big. But I guess that isn't going to happen so I'll move on and tell you about my card.

I coloured the image with my prismacolor pencils and blended it with grumtine, oh and it's stamped on Bella paper - it's great if you've been looking for good paper for stamping, and added bonus it works with pencils and copics. Cut the image out with nesties and matted it on nesties. I feel like a broken record, the same info every time, maybe I should consider getting copics - NOT!

I added only a little bit of glitter and then used my br-A-nd new Martha Stewart punch for those borders. I can't wait to use this punch again, but there are always so many ideas and so many things I want to try and use again, but to find the time is such a pain. Maybe I should buy less stuff, then I could use the same things more often - good idea - no, I agree, lol!

Remember how often I moaned and complained about HOW cold I was in my study, well guess what, it's summer, it's boiling hot, and now I am so hot in here I just wanna finish this post and get out - will I ever be happy. Well, I know one thing for sure, I'd rather be too hot than cold!

If you haven't visited the Bella blog yet, then I guess you don't know the theme for this week is BABY - anything Baby - and you have until Friday night to send your card to Emily. She is running late this week and gave everyone a little extra time. I have got the cutest little card to share for this theme, so do come back to visit and see what I've done.

Off to bed I go, have a great day, or evening, depending on your time zone.

Another gorgeous card Meahni. I love your Martha punch, where did you get it from. She has some lovely punches, there is also a "picket fence" one which I would love to buy. Would you let me know, and how much it cost. Tks friend. Have a great weekend. A cooler day here in Dundee today, lovely!! I am a Winter girl for sure, can't handle the heat. So not productive for crafting!!
