Bluebird's Rock!

Good Saturday morning everyone! Aren't you just so glad it is Saturday? I sure am! Today we are having a Elementary Fun Day at our church and while we don't have a huge number of kids attending I think it will be fun...bounce house, water slide, games...yeah, it will be fun!

Each month we do a card swap at stamp club. This month we chose a get well theme. Easy enough, right? Well, I was having a hard time choosing Bluebird or Lots of Bots. Ultimately the cute Bluebird won out. I found this idea on Amy's blog and just had to make it for my stamp club members...isn't she cute? I used Brilliant Blue and Summer Sun card stock (Amy used Pacific Point and it looks fabo!). Lots of punches are needed for this blue bird and I'll list them at the end for ya. As with any project like this the thing that takes the most time is the prep...punching out all of those shapes...thank goodness for punches! It only took a minute or two to put them together though. Definitely worth my time don't you think?

I have signed up for two different secret sister swaps this summer and have started receiving and sending for both. I LOVE getting mail that isn't bills! I'll be sharing a card or two as I go along so that you can enjoy the swaps with me. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow? That and one or two of the swap cards from stamp club? Hmmm...sound like a plan to me! That means I better get them photographed (and I need to do my creative project from my photography class) so I'd better run!

Have a super Saturday!
