When I was looking around the internet trying to come up with some quick and cute cards this one stood out big time by Danielle Daws, and I knew I wanted to do it. I only changed it a tad, by layering and changing the ribbon, but that is it. Thanks for the cute card Danielle.
I love the Aviary set and I had it to work with for my Convention demonstration this year, and it is so much fun. So that is probably why I loved the card, it is I guess you would call it monochramatic, and it is pretty quick to do, I did use the stamp a ma jig to get my bird cages lined up and to put the little bird in the cage, oh and yeah the greeting too…have I ever told you how much I love my stamp a ma jig? Don't you?
Stamp Set: Aviary, Apple Blossoms
Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Black
Ink: Sahara Sand, Basic Black
Misc: Striped Basic Black ribbon cut in half
So the other day when I showed you this card, I said I would show you how I got the longer jewelry tag punch and I totally forgot so here it is…oh and I did the fish tail too…
My laptop has a movie maker or something on it, so I want to see what it does, I didn't have time to do anything but upload the video so nothing fancy schmancy with it.
Did you watch American Idol? If not, stop reading.
I really liked how they did this and I am very excited for the people they picked, I am glad that Clint, the red headed guy and Rachel are gone, they were horrible. I wish the dark haired Lauren could have been around longer but other then that, it was great. I am glad Stefano and James are together, as they seem pretty tight.
I am excited for this year, and even though they are starting out with 13…eww…not a lucky number, I think this year is gonna be good. I think the guys are pretty strong. I think it will come down to Lauren, Pia, James and Scotty near the end, that's just my two cents.
Well I better hit the hay, I got a busy day tomorrow, I got cupcakes to make (real ones, not the balls) for Saturday and errands to run, so this old gal better get some shut eye.
Have an awesome Friday and thanks so much for stopping in!

Great post! Love the little trick to get more from your punches! And fraying that ribbon is really cool. I was sad to see the dark haired girl go too but really happy the little guy with bug-eye glasses didn't make it. Your picks are the same as mine…..
Di Di…love your creativeness!!! This is one I will have to try! So cute!

You are the greatest. I enjoy your blog every day and love the stamping tips as well as your everyday life. The video was so informative. I often wondered how to do the fish tale. Thanks.

I emailed you a question about Arizona 😉

Thanks for the great idea on how to do the fish tail thingie (medical technical term that can be used as needed). Are you going to have a preconvention special class for the demonstrators? DH is hinting that since we won some $$ in the lottery I may get to go to convention and I would love to go to your special class. Sign me up now!!
Carey and Roscoe (who is dissapointed he can't go)
I loved Danielle's card too – she does gorgeous stuff. Your card is equally as cute as hers. Great job!
I HAD to try this! I made a card and posted the link to your blog to give you credit! If that's not okay please let me know!
