Another "Bird Day" Card

I bought the "Tickled Pink" stamp set about 100 years ago ... do any of you remember it? It is a realllllyyy old SU one with pink flamingos ... I have always LOVED that set!! And I have made really good use of this "Happy Bird Day" sentiment over the years, as I have had MANY different stamp sets with birds in 'em ...

Anywho ... I was looking through some stuff on my Cricut "Life's a Beach" cartridge the other day and kept coming back to this stinkin' ca-YOOT pelican. He just makes me happy. So, with no particular idea in mind, I decided to cut him out and make a card with him. Easy enough ...

I can hear a bird singing out my window this morning. This despite the fact that it has been raining here for DAYS (since last weekend), and promises to rain more today. Sigh ... at least it's not SNOWING!!

Hugs to all!!

What a great card! It fits right in with my idea of you coming to Florida for a while! We have pelicans all over the beaches..flying about in the jets in the USAF.
Did I tell you Joshua has enlisted?

Your card is wonderful! It is so playful! I could see how you would use that sentiment a lot! Imagine using it to tell about a "bird watch" you went on at the beach-- in West Coast Florida! :P
