  1. You just love your birds Vicky! So do I. Love your bright card today. It’s another great release. Thank you for your inspiration ❤️

  2. I love that bird so much!! The stamp is perfect for my place in the world… Madison, Wisconsin❤️. I have birds feeding on my balcony right now that I would love to make it into?. You are right, it could be used for every season. Thanks❤️

  3. So cute and so versatile. Just by changing the colors you could make a whole series of note cards to give as gifts!

  4. Your card is lovely, Vicky! Thanks for showing that bird layering stamp. A few other crafters used it today, too…. I had to end up ordering it. My resolve and restraint folded like a house of cards. You always do such top-level work that it’s hard to resist. Thanks again.
