Happy Birthday for someone special....

5:20AM 1-31-2013:  Edited to add:  I have been playing around with my blog template in BLOGGER this morning to change to a larger and easier to see view.   I am getting older and the larger view will be much easier on my eyes! LOL!  So yes my blog probably does look different to those of you who come to visit me often!  Hugs! :) Jill 

Hello Friends,
Tonight I am linking up a card that I made for this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger!  I always think about playing but have only done so once (or twice maybe?) since I started making cards.  I am hoping to do better this year!  Anyway this week's trigger spoke to me and since it was dedicated to Cath's Mom for her birthday I really wanted to play along to SAY:

I was inspired by the woodgrain background with the happy colors and that sweet little bird! I just love his flowered wing!  I played around with trying to add other elements to my card, like the butterfly and flowers, but - in the end- decided that simple was best...

I dedicate this card to (of course) Cath Edvalson's Mom whose Birthday is this Friday!
Happy Birthday to YOU! 
May your year be full of BLESSINGS and JOY!

Thanks for taking a look at my card.  I hope you get to play with this week's Tuesday Trigger too!
:) Jill

  3. Jill this is gorgeous! Love the inlay of printed paper sooo pretty! How sweet of you to make this card.Love your take on the TT Sweet felt bird! Oh I love the larger blog too, I need to do that but I am afraid I will somehow erase my entire blog. It's a miracle I even have a blog. :)

    PS: My old eyes are really liking the new blog look :)
