3 Clovers Thursday Challenge 39-Bugs and Birds

Okay...go ask my friend Charla....she knows for many of my first stampin' years I had a real aversion to bugs or butterflies or birds. Don't ask me why...just did. Do you have a type of stamp that you have an odd aversion too? I bet I am not the only one!

Well, over the last few years, and especially since I have started blogging, I have been released! Martha Stewart's butterfly punches and Penny Black's Chickens have opened up a whole new world for me LOL!

This week at 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge, the team was asked to make a card using Birds or Bugs. Well, I can't seriously use a realistic bird or bug...I must use my dear PB crew! I so wanted to add a cute little birthday cake to this card...and in my zillions of stamps, I could not find one that made me happy, so it is what it is!

I had this card in mind when this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge #74 came around...and it fit perfectly..... Song Title/Lyrics!

Bugs and Birds should be an easy challenge to stamp along with...... Let's see what you can do!

Oh Wow! what a cheerful card to see when I landed here. I love those quirkey quacky wacky birdies. Teamed up with the black and white is great.

Ahhh, Martha Stewart is the answer for everything. LOL. This card is just the best ever! Great humor -- lively colors (and you didn't need a birthday cake after all).
