Angry Bird and April Stamp Camp Cards

Hi there and happy Monday to you!  Sorry that I didn't get to post any cards Thursday or Friday as I'd hoped.  I was busy preparing for an all day Crop for the Cure on Saturday and finishing up for my Stamp Camp held Sunday.  The crop was a lot of fun even though we thought we might have to take cover in the hallway during the thunderstorms.  There were a couple of major storms that swept through the area.  Some areas had baseball size hail, which damaged homes and cars as a result!
Sunday a group of wonderful ladies came to Stamp Camp spreading sunshine with their smiles and enthusiasm to have some stamping fun, even though the sky was gray and dreary!  And what fun we had!
OK on to some cards.  The first card is one that my Demo friend, Deana Schultz, made at the crop Saturday and gave to each table mate.  Lucky me to be sitting with her.  Thanks Deana - love it!
This fat bird was made from a 2-1/2" circle punch.  Punch out a Riding Hood Red and a White circle.  Snip out a bit of the Red (with the punch) and layer over the White.  The Heart to Heart punch (retiring May 31st) was used for the tuft and tail. The White portion of his eyes were from a 5/8" punch and the Black is a standard hole punch.  Add a little pen work to the eyes with a White Signo gel pen. His beak and eyebrows were made by trimming a 3/4" square.  This bird is zooming across a Pool Party card base with an Old Olive grassy mound.

Next up is one of the projects from Stamp Camp.  I've seen quite a few of these flower pot cards recently.  Guess we're all thinking Mother's Day or get well cards to brighten someone's day.
