Second helpings for The Card Concept, and a little tree for Therese at Muse

Those little birds that did the border crossing from Canada to the U.S. have really captured my heart.  I couldn't help but give you a second helping... truthfully, I've made five cards with those I stamped.  The most wonderful thing?  Amy Tsuruta - the generous, fabulous, and adorable - is sending me that stamp!!  You know I won't be leaving it alone once it arrives - thank you so much, Amy!!  I'm trading a home-cooked meal for it ... hope she can make it! =]

I can't wait to share this one for The Card Concept's Krafty Christmas:

"Unexpected gifts from Friends are the very best kind."
 
Therese Calvird's inspiration card at Muse this week made me scratch my head... yep, stumped again.  Until I ran across this tiny cutie among my Christmas supplies.  With a few die-cut stars, I think she looks rather festive.... for Muse #93:


 
You'll notice the scenery has changed quite drastically outside my kitchen window!
 
It's beginning to look a lot like Winter, 'round here!
How about at your house?

Gorgeous, Michele ... more of those wonderful TT birds ... and still so beautifully simple and uncoloured! Love the pop of red! Such a sweet little tree ... the wee stars are just so cute! Think I'd prefer your landscape today ... it's wet, wet, wet, wet and wet here ... and did I mention it was also wet??? Anita :)

Both cards are fabulous Michele (your sentiment tree is uber cool)! We are heading into summer here and with a weekend at 39 degrees it's been wonderful (that means no beautiful snow outside my window though).

Love these - those birds are wonderful (I saw your other card, too - very original and creative!). So glad you joined us at Muse this week!

Joyce said...

These are both so darling. Glad I can pin all these cute cards to help get me started when I break open those little birds here.

Oh crap... just as cute as the first card you made! I love birds with christmas. I have never thought of the two together for some reason, but they go so well!

Kristie Goulet said...

I love both of these, Michele! The birdies are adorable!!!
It is snowing outside my window as I type this. :)

I wish I'd known you didn't have that stamp. I have an extra one that I was going to send you until I saw your darling cards and thought you already had it. I haven't made a Christmas card with mine but maybe it's time.

Both of your cards are so cute and fun Michelle! I love those birds, do they get any cuter?!! Love the tiny star too. Your "word" tree is awesome, love these types of cards. We don't have the snow that you have, but it is cold here. Old man winter is definitely making it know that he is on the way! lol Hugs, Brenda

These are both brilliant, Michele! I adore those birdies too and will get my hands on them eventually! And your sentiment Christmas tree is genius!

Tracey McNeely said...

Two beauties Michele! I am loving that you are using those sweet birds you stamped and can't wait until you get a hold of your own!

Shona Chambers said...

I can see what you mean about the view from your window, how beautiful! Do you find the snow 'beautiful' or is that only something someone like me would say, who never has snow around their house?? Those little birdies are so cute and how wonderful of Amy to send you the stamp (she's so generous!!).

Oh my...I love your sweet little birds! I have that stamp set too and it has yet to see any ink but not any more, I really love what you did with this pair of critters. Thank you so much for playing along with us at The Card Concept.
