Spring Day

I have to say I had a lot of fun making this card, 
though I had a little unwanted help from 'Mack'.
He was bound and determined to chew up my efforts,
I was determined he wasn't lol!

I neglect my poor Cricut except for using it for my
The Cutting Cafe post (one of which will be tomorrow).

I actually forgot how to use it since I do mostly SVG files.
So, when I saw the challenge at Bitten By The Bug,
I thought why not.  The challenge is umbrellas
and of course to use your Cricut.

There were so many umbrellas to choose from,
but this little bird just kind of peeped at me.

The sentiment is from Stampendous Spring Sentiments set,
(right now today, these are 50% off)
I love the entire set, so much I might have to buy some more.  
It was stamped with Memento Dew Drop ink Bahama Blue.
I used my TH Stamp Platform for a perfect placement.

I added Nuvo Dazzling Blue glitter drops to the raindrops,
a feather and a few little 'dots' to define.
Hope you like my little bluebird!

( I added links for all the products I could if interested)

Entering the following challenges:
Bitten By The Bug .... Umbrella and Cricut
Addicted To CAS ....Rain

Ack, too cute!! I don't doubt you had fun with this. That birdie with the feather top knot is adorable!! I looked at the sentiment set and I LOVE it, want it, but I will NOT order anything more until the Post Office finds my DRU package which was delivered to the wrong address on the 2nd and the occupants apparently are not upstanding enough to either return it to the PO or bring it to us like we take their mail to them every time the mail carrier puts their mail in our box. The people won't even answer the door. I'm fuming. Can you tell? Grrrrrr!
