CAS-ual Fridays / Michele's 50th Birthday Blog Hop Celebration!

Bird-day 

Welcome!  I am here to celebrate a friend, Michele Gross of CAS-ual Fridays, 50th BIRTHDAY!  There is a fabulous blog hop with lots of Girl Fridays from past and present!  Happy Birthday Michele!!!

You should have arrived from Alanna Moses' blog but if not, you can start at the beginning over at the CAS-ual Fridays blog.  Your next stop is the sweet Ceal Pritchett!  

No automatic alt text available.

I just loved the Little Birdies stamps with their boldness!  I decided to stamp them in black on white cardstock and die cut.  I added some grey outline with N2 Copic and some pink cheeks with R20.  They were added to panel of layered cardstock strips in beachy colors (I've been watching lots of HGTV--island life ☺).  The strips were the perfect place to stamp multiple lines for the sentiment.
