This week’s shop is

Artisan made Cottage Home Decor Birdhouses Metal Art!!!

I know I say this every week,
but I LOVE LOVE LOVE this shop!
Everything matches my home and I have a thing for anything birdlike!

My card is CAS (Clean and simple). I’ve been working on executing cards like this and it is quiet the challenge for me!
All stamps are Odd Bird Planet:
hearts branch,
birdhouse row,
and I believe the wee bitty bird is retired,
but here’s a great alternative,
kelly’s tiny bird right.

Here’s my inspiration:

Here’s a great shelf for your home!

So, won’t you play along???
Be sure to link your creation to Ashley’s Blog!
And check out the rest of the DT :)
This is Dawn’s last week with us, so leave her some love!

Happy Birthday Johanna!!!!

According to Facebook,
the beloved owner of Odd Bird Planet/JustJohanna,
Johanna celebrates her birthday today!!!


I’ve also caught some glimpses of a Pirate Birthday Party that was thrown in her honor!
So, here is my card I made for the Birthday Girl…
I wanted it to look like the cover of a children’s storybook…

To me, Johanna has led the life of a storybook character. She is a true Renaissance woman- worldly, charming, intelligent, artistic…
I’m so lucky to have met such an amazingly rare individual!

Here’s to you Johanna!

The card includes some retired (but young at heart) stamps all from Odd Bird Planet!
JJ A Pirate’s Life for Me is available!


A little princess’s 1st Birthday!

Here is a card that my friend,
Kelly, ordered on my Etsy!
She asked for a little girl’s cupcake themed 1st birthday card (wow that’s a mouthful)!
I used that CTMH Daydream paper and
that large Frosting Only Cupcake stamp from Odd Bird Planet!
The corsage pin is also CTMH and the puffy white frosting look alike
is liquid applique heat set!
Hope Kelly likes it as much as I do…

WOW! 37 weeks of Etsy Goodness???

This week’s shop is a fun one,
SunBasilGarden-because life is too messy not to use happy soap!
I chose her collection of poppy soaps for my inspiration:

Here is some more inspiration in Guava:

And bacon and eggs:

For my card I used Cosmo Cricket paper, Unity’s April and May KOTM, basic grey buttons and some liquid glass to add demension to the trees with the birdies :)
