It's that time of the month again - REVEAL DAY!! It's our "Bird Brain" Blog hop!
Make sure you hop on over to D2D and check it out.

My first card image is called Birdbath Chick and I just couldn't wait to use it.  It's been so hot here by us in the Midwest and along with our recent drought, I have been filling & cleaning our birdbath constantly, as the birds are always looking for a cool drink : ) These last couple of days we have FINALLY managed to get some rain and things look a tad better, but we could for sure use more rain!

Anyway, I wanted to keep this card real simple, so I just started off by stamping just the bottom half of the kardstock w/a background stamp. I then cut a 1-1/2" piece of DP and punched 1 edge w/a border punch. Then put my image on top of that and then just had to finish it off by doing the bubbles w/some Stickles!

 Below is a little better view of all the wonderful Stickles
 For my 2nd card I used Martini Chicks. I just LOVE this image!! It is just to flippen cute! I just love how she did the birds eyes. He looks kind of 'whacky' and out of sorts if you will. So I wanted to make a card that was kind of the same way.  I wanted to use brighter colors and mix up my patterns.  I know there are some scrappers out there that go " don't mix stripes & circles together", but I thought this image begged for that! I used a little Glossy Accents on his eyes to give him that 'glazed' look.
Well.....I hope you enjoyed my creations. Don't forget ~ we will be having a challenge again this month. Our readers will be invited to use the color scheme from one of the designer's cards from the blog hop. You will then have two weeks to enter, and Faith will select a winner or two from the challenge.

Thanks so much for blog hoppin' with D2D! Remember, you can enter our Blog Hop Challenge for a chance to win some FREE Digis! Also, all New Release Digital Stamps will be on SALE until July 23. Details HERE.
