Hi, Friends....

I am back with another card to share for the big Winnie & Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash celebration over on their blog!!! Not only do they have a GIGANTIC giveaway, but they have 10 different challenges that you can play along with.....including a chance at a big Guest Star slot, if you participate with at least 4 different cards starring their products!! (See their blog post for details on that.) Winnie & Walter challenges are among my favorites anywhere in the papercrafting blogosphere. I hope you will join me in wishing Shay and everyone at W&W a Happy 3rd Birthday and play along with the challenges!!!

These colors are so much brighter and prettier in real life..... (sigh)
Since it is my Birthday Week, I have several thank yous to write so I thought I better make a few thank you cards. I love this little birdie from the Winnie & Walter - LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs stamp set. I stamped him and some little hearts from the same set plus the sentiment from the Winnie & Walter - Big Hugs with Evelin T Designs stamp set onto a smooshed background. 

I die cut the stamped piece with the long tag from the Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set and slipped a fun piece of mesh underneath it. I mounted it on a DCWV background cut with the large scalloped rectangle from the Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set. A pretty gingham tie, a few sequins, and some accents from my clear Wink of Stella pen....and I was done. Sweet!!!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me your kind comments!!! I hope to see you at my Virtual Birthday Party and also over at the Winnie & Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash celebration. I still have another card to share with you, so I will see you soon!!!

  3. Your cat meme cracked me up! Cute tag card - love the mesh you used - must try to remember this!

  4. What a cute pudgy bird on your card.

  5. I love that little chubby bird! So cute! Great card - the colours are great and a nice contrast to the grey, rainy weather outside my window right now! I don't have any Winnie & Walter stamps but I'm liking the ones you're sharing lately! I'll have to see where I can get these in the UK :) x

  6. Love this fresh green and yellow card and I see that you have gotten over your tag-phobia!! The mesh layer makes me think of birds building their nests in spring, when something like a piece of mesh would be screaming out to be picked apart and woven into some birds new home. Oh, and your Soy Milk meme is ridiculously funny!!! How in the world do you find all these hilarious cat memes anyway?!!!

  7. Oh Janis I do love this car,d I'll be honest I don't know I Winnie and Walter products but love that background hive mad eitmreally pops and looks great with the tag on top.
    Thanks for sharing your inspiration!
