Birdie Greetings

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!   Hope you're able to spend the day with family and friends and be thankful for all that you have!  I know I am :)

So my cousin-in-law, Julie's birthday was yesterday. I asked for her card to be mailed while we were away (Hopefully it got to her).  Here's what I made her!
She and her husband Vin love birds - so I thought it would be fun to gather up my bird stamps to make her a card 'from the whole flock'.  We've got many birds here:  Hero Arts, Lawn Fawn, Memory Box and Studio G.  There were even more inside, but I failed to take a picture of it BEFORE writing my greeting - but it was just as cute :)

And btw, Julie has put a kabash on people buying penguin things for her husband, since he collects penguin 'things' so you know I just couldn't resist adding one to her card :)

Oh..........and I must show you what was awaiting us when we got home from Italy:
There are about 50 paper roosters glued on to sticks. Plus there are three at our front door along w/ a birthday sign for Frank.  Roosters are a running joke in our family.........I'm sure you haven't seen the last of these! ;)

Thanks for your visit!

Love the "from the whole flock" concept and I am impressed how many bird stamps you own! Cute idea with the roosters too, down here they were doing pink flamingos in peoples yard for awhile. Doesn't take much to amuse us does it?

SUPER cute card!! It almost makes you feel like you're outside with all the birds singing in the tree!!

Ok, now that's A LOT of chicks!! How we need to hear the story behind the roosters!

Have a wonderful day.

OMGosh, those roosters crack me up! What a surprise homecoming that must have been! Your birdie birthday card is a lot of fun! Love the whole flock thrown in there, and the penguin for a bit of a poke of fun!
