Happy Happy Thursday!!!

I thought I would post a card today along with some wonderful news!  First of all let me tell you a little bit about my goal and card. My goal for this year is to use cartridges that I have used only once.  So today I am killing 2 birds with one stone!  3 birds on a Parade I have had over a year and Plantin Schoolbook for about 6 months, these are the first two to be  taken care of. I just think this card is just so adorable!


Card base - Lacy Labels 4.38 (x2) welded with gypsy
Mat - Lacy Labels 4.28
Bird - 3 Birds on a Parade 3.30 along with accesories
Tall green grass - Plantin Schoolbook 1.0
Light grass - Provo Craft paper shapers
Colored Flowers - Doodlebug Design Paper Posies
Kraft, yellow, sky blue and darker blue papers - Recollections
Turquoise paper - Co-ordinations
Back ground paper - My Minds Eye Mambi Sheets
Adhesives - ATG, 2way Zig, Glue dot and glue gun
Twine - We R Memory Keepers
Button - Michaels dollar bin
Ink- Memento Tuxedo Black

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper playtime - For Ch# 71 USE AN UMBRELLA on your project & any type of Die Cut!

Now the word from the bird is "Celebration and Giveaways". Today is my 22nd Anniversary, I am soo excited! So I thought it would be great for everyone to take part in our celebration, don't you think so? Now for starters, I will be giving away Cloud 9 4x8 Sports stamps, along with Fiskers Squarely Sentimental stamps, you will be needing some ink, so I will be sending that too!

 All you need to do is leave me a comment with a way I can get in touch with you. You don't have to be a follower for this particular giveaway but there is more to come, and those will be for my followers!!! (Winner announced on Monday 4/9).

Tomorrow is a new day and a new Celebration!! 

My 2 year Blogaversary will be on Sunday 4/8 so I will be doing 3 days of giveaways from 4/6 to 4/8. You will have until 11:59pm Sunday night to leave a comment for each giveaway and I will announce all the winners for each day on Monday 4/9. Considering this is going to be a  blogaversary celebration, if it weren't for my followers, I don't know if I would have kept this going. So for this reason, you will need to be a follower!

Word from the bird is, come back tomorrow and see what's up for grabs!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!
