This one's for the birds...

Hey there,
I had the day off today and it was a much needed three day weekend!  I found another cool challenge blog today: Party Time Tuesdays.  This week's them is Birds.
So, after all my errands were done...it's time to make a good cup of coffee, kick back and start creating!  I've decided to revisit the traditional art of paper cutting.

I printed the pattern on the bottom half of white 8.5 x 11 card stock.  I went to cutting with my Xacto knife.  (Yes, this was done by hand...I do not own a Cricut machine...at least not yet, lol).  I glued a red 5 x 7 card stock behind it to make it "pop".  I kept the card simple with minimal embellishment to let the little birdie sing for itself :)
I'm also going to enter this for the "Birds of a Feather" challenge over at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.
Well, I'm off to complete at least one more project.  Thanks for stopping by!
Peace and love,
Mary xoxo
