Sweet Little Birdies

It’s Springtime….beginning of summer.  And at my house (at least before I left on my trip), there were birds singing in the trees.  Right now I am writing this from Seoul, South Korea and I’m in them middle of the city….so although there are trees lining the streets, I haven’t seen or heard any birds in my walks around the city.  When I visited 3 years ago there were cherry blossom trees blooming and they remind me of today’s card.


These little birdies are so sweet!….reminds me of baby birds out the nest….waiting in line for their first flight!


Today I am sharing another one of my favorite stamp sets from the new Stampin’ Up 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, the FREE AS A BIRD stamp set.  Besides the birds on a branch that I chose, there are also several other bird and flower images and great sentiments.


Alone it can make beautiful cards, but pairing it with the BIRD BALLAD DESIGNER SERIES PAPER makes it even better!   If you don’t feel like stamping, you can fussy cut images straight from the paper!


If you’d like to make this card, this is what you’ll need:
