Sending a smile...

Sending smiles is so important these days, so I decided to make a card that would do just that.

I'm sure you recognize one of Tim Holtz's crazy birds, which I have colored with alcohol markers and then cut out with the matching die.

My bird was popped up on foam tape as was my computer-generated sentiment.

I had cut out my sentiment strips and backed them with black cardstock before popping them up on my card.

The border die across the bottom of my DSP (from Stampin' Up) is an unbranded one that is fun to use on cards like this.

I left my card blank so that I can write a personal note inside. In fact, this card has already been sent, and I'm pretty certain it resulted in some smiles!

Today the sun is shining brightly and the weather has warmed just a tad. We've been promised a very nice weekend, so it's time to get serious about that outdoor work. If I were a betting woman, I'd be putting nearly all my money on "NO MORE SNOW!"

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day. Happy weekend, everyone!

This brought a smile this early morning as I am catching up on comments. I have these birds and I haven't used them in a really long time. Love the sentiment - and that is the way I feel. With the stay at home order - been cooking/baking and eating more!!!

Bwahaha! Love, love, love this! So cute, and I have actually succeeded in diets like this myself! Thanks for the giggles! Adorable card!

I love it, Cheryl!! Watching my weight has been very difficult lately. :( That's about how long my diets have lasted, too. I have some of those birds and have rarely used them. I need to get them out.

That border is a perfect whimsy ground for one of these karazy birds to stand on! You colored him beautifully, Cheryl, and both the Mister and I laughed hysterically at the sediment! We brag a lot here, too!! Take care and keep safe! Hugs, Darnell

LOL! ROTFL! I so identify with that sentiment. And that bird is just perfect for it. I know this one made someone smile a lot.

What a fun card! The crazy bird on a really funny "fence". And I love the sentiment! Whoever gets this card will love it!

Well I have that bird stamp, I still have a couple of your little 'fences', I am so gonna case your card!!
Hope your good weather continues - we've had the most beautiful couple of weeks here, plenty of sunshine and barely any rain! It has made such a pleasant change and has definitely made this lockdown more bearable :)
