United We Flourish - Better Together with Hero Arts

I'm happy to be Hopping with a whole flock of fabulous card makers today, as we celebrate another United We Flourish - Better Together set - this time with Hero Arts
 
 
There aren't many tropical birds like this at our feeder, but I allowed my imagination color them!

 
 
Okay, so the sentiment is really "stay coo" but, because you know I cannot help myself, I've added a bit of my own humor -
even inside ...
 
 
I'm the 'coo-coo-est' of them all, aren't I?! 

This set, complete with the dies, is available now in the shop at Ellen Hutson, LLC - and guess what?  To celebrate, two randomly selected commenters will win a $30 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson shop!  To enter just leave a comment on the Ellen Hutson Classroom blog by 12pm PST on January 28th

Thanks for stopping by today... ready for your next stop? please head over to Michelle Short's blog The Card Grotto because you know she'll work her own brand of magic with this fabulous set...

Supporting supplies:  MFT Wonky Rectangles, Avery Elle Pierced CirclesDistress Inks for blending, and Zigs for coloring, Hero Arts Decorative Wood Grain paper.

Michele, I am not one for bird stamps...but everytime I see a card you make with birds (especially the french fry loving ones) I can't help but think how fabulous your cards are and these are no exception.

Well... we don't get ANY tropical birds in our garden. But the antics of those we do have bring me a measure of joy - unless they are a pigeon, starling, sparrowhawk... you get the picture?
These would be welcome anytime though. x
