"Time" For Winter to Go Away!!

I am not sure how this post will look, so if it is "crazy" spaced out, I apologize,
"my" blog is "broke", and after an entire day and evening doing whatever I could think
of, it still is not working properly.  My pictures won't load in the post like they should
and after about 15 tries I  might get  them in the post, then they are mammoth, and when I size them
back down where they are supposed to be, it then moves my wording wherever it wants to be.

So anywho, I took a much needed break from the blogging stress and made a card for
City Crafters challenge which is "Snow Birds".
I just received some beautiful blue papers and was proud of myself that I opened
the package up and started using them, rather then "hoard" them away!

I stamped my clock face on the same paper and used it's matching die.  The bird cage was cut
from a glitter paper and the birdie from another "just received" product.
The icicles hanging from the cage came from my stash and I am too embarrassed to tell you
how long I have had them!!
This card is much more "3D" then it shows!

Also entering this in the challenge at
Art Impressions "expect the unexpected" to use something from your stash
"unexpected" item is those "had forever" icicles!
Simon Says Monday challenge "Blues"
Shopping My Stash "use something new"

The products I used are :
Paper: docrafts Capsule Collection
Bird paper: SU Print Poetry Paper Stack
Bird cage paper:  DCWV Glitzy Glitter
Bird cage and bird die cut: TH Alterations Caged Bird
Clock: Stamp and die: My Favorite Things Time Pieces

Your patterned bird is so pretty, and so is your new paper. You're so good to use it right away. I'm terrible about that. Great job shopping your stash, too. Your beaded icicles were the perfect accent on the birdcage. Your blog looks fine to me, but I see your computer is in for repairs, now. I hope it all works out for you. Very frustrating, but at least you can still stamp!
