MoJo Monday... A Little Birdie Told Me!

Happy day to you! I finally finished my MoJo Monday card. All good intentions to post it earlier, but better late than never! He... :)

I've been wanting to use my "A Little Birdie Told Me" set. And then I remembered I had this sentiment "April showers bring May flowers" which is from Inkadnkado... everything fell in place from that point. With paper piecing on the bird and umbrella, I used the SAB DP, also I used my Nestie dies and

punched flowers from the DP to match and attached them with glue dots to raise them a bit. Click on the photo's for a closer view.


Also check out SCS for the Victorian Bushfire Appeal non-raffle... SUPER FUN PRIZES to win!!!! I donated a set of Nesties, rub-ons, brads, one of my stamped cards, etc. SU! has donated a ton of items for this non-raffle too along with many other companies and paper crafters! CHECK IT OUT!!

Have a super day and think spring!! Thanks for the visit... Enjoy!!
