Blue Winter Bird-Day!

Sunday, December 23, 2012

Well, it's almost Christmas!  Hard to believe two days from now it will be here and almost over once again!  And, as always, another busy, bustling season where my good intentions were almost all they were....intentions!  Yet, isn't that always how it is?  The best laid plans have a tendency to somehow go awry.  Didn't get all my Christmas cards done on time, so here I am still doing them.  Course I always say that as long as they get there before January 1st, it's still counts.  Right?  Humor me people!  LOL

And, with that said, here's a birthday card, NOT a Christmas card!  Double LOL!  I have several friends and my dad who have birthdays very close to Christmas Day.  My dad's 76th birthday is today in fact!  This isn't his card, by the way.  I did get his gift off to him although it didn't arrive on time (go figure) and I did call him today!  So, it's not like I forgot! 

This card I made for a good friend using the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and theme of winter Non-holiday cards at Shopping Our Stash.

Stamps:  Image - Digital clipart (Graphics Fairy); Sentiment - Digital sentiment.
Paper:  White and royal blue cardstock.  DP from stash ---- old DP.
Ink:  Computer ink.
Extras:  Bird feather; snowflake emboss folder, notebook border punch; rhinestone swirls, blue dots.

Hey, are you stalking me?
I get to leave a comment for both DTs ;) First, how awesome is this for a winter birthday? I LOVE that sentiment! and the bits of feather underneath are fabulous! Love those deep blues :) And what a great take on the sketch :) Love those gem swirls too.
And, naturally, thanks for playing along with both Tuesday Morning Sketches and with Shopping our (Wintery) Stash :) You rock!
