Happy bird

What a GORGEOUS day out here in Montreal!!!!  I enjoyed tending my flower bed this morning with my youngest son ;)  It was fun.  Then I started making some of my DT cards.  I actually made 2!  

One for Tammy scrapin corner.  BTW there's still time to join in this weeks challenge which is show me your flowers!  

And the other card is for Jacksons digital expressions challenge.   It's always anything goes but the twist this week is altered art.  Go and check it out!

So of course I can't show them to you yet ;)  But I've made another card.  This week while browsing the wonderful sites I came across this one Doodle pantry blog they had wonderful freebie digi to use for their challenge.  I couldn't pass it up.  Just had to make a card for it.  I think it turned out to be one of my favorite ones so far.
Isn't he just soooo sweeeeeet!  The digi is called cdd Happy bird 2 and the sentiment is cdd I'm so happy.  I used some papers that  I had from previous cards.  I actually used my sewing machine.  I had not done this for a very long time.  The last time I had really messed up my needle by going over the glue line :/  Let me just say I was extra careful this time!

I also used black buttons and added yellow ones on top!  The reason is I was following this wonderful color inspiration:

And I followed this sketch:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Doodle pantry blog - wonderful Digi
  2. Going-buggy - things with wings
  3. The dynamic duos challenge - great color combo
  4. Sketch saturday - sketch

I really hope that you liked my card!  It was sooooo much fun creating it.  Thanks for all the wonderful comments.  Just love reading all of you.
