Stampin’ Up! Bird Banter - SBTD February Critters Blog Hop

Welcome to our monthly SBTD Blog Hop - did you love Lindsay's Party Panda's as much as I did? If you have hopped on over from Lindsay's Blog in Colorado - well welcome to the sunny - stinkin' hot Australian summer time here where the birdlife is abundant!

Did you know the Budgerigar is native to Australia? They are nomadic birds found in open habitats, primarily in scrublands, open woodlands, and grasslands. Bird Banter has the Aussies covered with this little guy and the Cockatoo stamp. (Best bit is there's 2 of the Budgie - one facing in each direction!)

I got to use up a load of coloured scraps for my script to sit on to give the card a fun bright multi-coloured look. I punched the hole through the 3 layers of card - yes it was a real effort but worth it, traced the circle on the inner piece with a very light pencil so I could line up my bird.

The balloons and bird were coloured using out Stampin' Blends.

I hope you like my cards but for now thank you for visiting me and lets go back across the globe you go to visit the Stamping Hive with Tashana and see 'critters' she has played with for her project.
