Birthday Birdies

Good morning folks, wishing you a wonderful day.  I've a card to share with you today, its the one I made for my youngest grandson Charlie who celebrated his 11th birthday a few weeks ago.

I thought I should offer a little explanation for my choice of design for his card.  Some time ago there was a small incident and after that for a while he was known affectionately as 'Charlie the Chicken Poker' Ha Ha 

I used stamps from the JOFY 15 stamp set to create the scene - I just love these cute birds - and words from the JOFY 11 set to create a sentiment.  Each of the leaves were stamped and coloured using Spectrum Aqua pens before fussy cutting out and attaching to the tree branches.  The birdhouse and all the birds were stamped, coloured and cut out the same way before assembling the whole scene.

I'm told that Charlie was very pleased with his card, said it was "very funny" !  Result..... Grandma strikes again ;0)

Today is my lovely sister-in-law's birthday, Happy Birthday Celia have a fabulous day.

Thanks for popping by to check today's project, hope you enjoyed it.
