 Hello everyone,

 I'm having a good day and going to share a card I made using for the very first time a small image with dies from " Hello Bluebird" that I found online and never before have I coloured and cut something so small, I've seen Nicole Sphor do it, and Tina Smith from Cards and Coffee time,  but I never thought I could do it, but I really surprised myself at how fun and not too hard they were....

First off, I made my scene using this brilliant die set from Mama Elephant..

It comes like this and all you do is cut'n'colour the trees and borders...
The center had a panel that you can put back in if you want but I didn't..

Then I stamped my little girl and her birdy friends..

Coloured them, then cut them out with the matching dies..

After mounting my background scene onto pale blue card stock i place my birds where I though they could go..

Placed this little girl and sentiment...

Then knocked them all of as I needed to splatter..

And I really splattered the background..

then popped everyone back on..

And done...

Oh, I really loved making this card, and kept it..and the I went back shopping over at 
HELLO BLUEBIRD   and bought some more image and die sets..

That was before my eyes went doo dah, but things are good at the moment and I'm going to do some colouring and cutting soon..

Thank you so much for stopping by, still Sunday, still raining, and I've got a very wet cat who just hopped onto my bed before I made it and now I have muddy pussy prints all over my sheets..
