Bird Thank Yous

Right now I'm working on 2 projects simultaneously.  I am making some Thank You cards requested by my SAS4K volunteer and using up papers and partially made cards in a recently discovered shoe box.   This card started out with a stamped image on a piece of cs rescued from "the box". 
 I colored the hummer with watercolor pencils, 
added some layers, a sentiment and a bow.

This next card began as a piece of paper from "the box", saved from a Thank You card I received in the mail, with a circular hole in the middle where the Thank You had been.
 I made a frame for the aperture, stamped the CTMH bird in the center of the card base, colored the bird, paper pieced the banner, embossed the background, sponged the edges, added the twine before gluing it to the card base and popped on some enamel dots.

  5. I love both birds - I was lucky enough to see hummingbirds when I was in Colorado - they are so gorgeous and we don't have them in the UK - thanks for joining us at #JOSTTT006 and hope to see you again

  6. Absolutely love you watercoloring on the hummingbird. The embossed background on the second card is rather nice with the sponged edges as it ties in with the stitched embossed circle die cut. Thanks for participating in the #JOSTTT006 challenge.

  7. Love the CAS design of the hummingbird card, and the second card is really cute,

    Thanks for playing along at Aud Sentiments,
