Birthday Birdhouses

A fun little birthday card for a friends birthday this Saturday.  

I started with Stampin Up Pink Pirouette, the pretty patterned paper is called 'Something Special'.  I finally used one of the Washi Tapes that I bought in Japan....the purple strip down the side.  Next I coloured this fun image 'Three Birdhouse' image from Pattie G.  Seems a long time ago since I have used my copic pens, so it was nice to sit and colour.  I cut around the image with my Spellbinder Reverse Wonky Rectangle die.  

I had a lovely day yesterday catching up with friends and family I have not caught up with this year. This was through all types of method.  Firstly, email to New Zealand, phone call to Kewarra Beach, chat over feta and spinach quiche in Gordonvale, chat in bindery in Gordonvale, and lastly a cuppa tea with my SIL and their cute and chatty 2 year old son.

Wishing you all a fun filled Thursday.
