Birthday Celebrations for Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Global Stamping Friends June blog hop from Amanda Bates in the UK... This month we are simply celebrating birthdays.... so please carry on and hop around and be inspired by the makes of my lovely crafty friends around the world...
But before you go... here is my own little creation to share with you... a Birdhouse birthday card made with my mother very much in mind... as she loves birds... and a birdhouse...
And I have to admit that I am really happy how this turned out... and looks like I have a new set of dies to get all creative with!!
Another version of my (current favourite fun fold) Pop Up Front Step Panel card... adjusted to make a little Stitched Nested Labels birdhouse... using a couple of the nested labels and the little straight liner too! (see die second down on the left! Note that this die does not cut...it just adds a line of the double stitching...wherever you want it! Fab!)
With a little Stitched Be Mine heart doorway...

Perfect design to use with the gorgeous new Bird Ballad papers....
And finishing off with Itty Bitty Birthdays for the greetings...
I will be back with more details on this card another day... as there are already a few versions to share with you!
And now I shall say Goodbye... and pass you onto the lovely Lisa Ann in the USA... who has something bright & beautiful to share with you... Just click on the big arrow!

And in case of any glitches - or for those that prefer to work with a list... here is the Roll Call of all those taking part this month...
