Singing Springtime Praises and a DT Call!

Happy Tuesday Bloggers!
Time for me to share another inspirational sample card using dies purchased at Dies R Us!  Have you checked out the new Dies R Us Store yet?  Oh what are you waiting for ... it's your ONE STOP SHOPPING SITE FOR DIES (great prices too)!

Before sharing my card with you, I wanted to make sure you heard the news!
There's going to be a *NEW* Dies R Us Challenge Blog beginning May 1st and we
are looking for a DESIGN TEAM!   
Do you like to create using dies on your cards/projects?
Well  why not give it a try!  
You can find all the details on our Dies R Us FB Page
in our Dies R Us Newsletter or on DTcalls.com.  
I've also posted all the information HERE on my blog!
Come give it a try!

Now ... on to today's card!
Today I am once again praising the arrival of Spring!
I've actually been watching the birds going in & out of our birdhouses, building their nests and getting them all ready for those young ones!
That was my inspiration for today's card using birds, branches and bird houses!

Memory Box - STENCIL - VinesAs you know, the main product line at Dies R Us is DIES ... BUT, they do have some other goodies available like the fabulous Memory Box Stencils that are also in stock now!  For instance, this 'Garden Vines' #88523 that I have used for the background on today's card.
By simply placing the stencil on a piece of white cardstock, I gently sponged various Tim Holtz distress inks over the stencil to create this sunset background for my card.
Another fun technique I used today was 'paper piecing' on the birdhouses.  I have so many scraps that I've been trying to use some of them every chance I get and since my ACTUAL birdhouse are decorated I thought why not do the same for today's card.

The dies used today are:
Impression Obsession #DIE058 - Love Birds
Cheery Lynn Designs #B178 - Flourish Leaf Strip
Joy! Crafts #6002/0137 (available during European Die Sale)

I just love watching the many birds we have here in N.E. Ohio, USA ... AND I love creating cards with the fabulous dies that are available at Dies R Us!
