Happy Mail Send Out - Bird Ballad

I've been busy this week, making heaps of cards and sending them out to all the people that I'm missing at the moment. I will admit I'm a complete extrovert and this isolation is really hard to swallow. A friend sent me a meme the other day that said "Check on your Extrovert friends, they are NOT ok". It's so true and it really made me giggle.

Anyway, craft always cheers me up and sending happy mail makes me happier then receiving it. Plus I decided to use the left over scraps of the Bird Ballad designer series paper, which is bound to put a smile on anyone's face.

Yes I did fussy cut out that little bird and his branch. I tried to run it though my Scan N Cut but it just couldn't find the image, so in the end I decided to cut them myself. I am someone who does enjoy a good bit of fussy cutting, so it was very therapeutic.

The checkered pattern paper behind the bird is also retired, but I do know you can still purchase our designer series paper stacks, in each colour group and in there you will find this pattern too.

I of course couldn't just make one colour card...

This time I did a Balmy Blue one and as you can see from the close up shot below, I also made one in Petal Pink too.

I really love and adore this Scripty embossing folder and if you haven't already added this folder to your collection, you really need to. It's simply perfect for every occasion.

Oh and a quick tip. If you CASE my card, don't throw the cut out circle away. I have another set of cards to share later in the week, where I've actually used that circle.

So why not send a little happy mail out. I'm sure anyone who receives a handmade card will be over the moon to know someone is thinking of them!

Happy Crafting,
