Happy Birthday

Hi everyone.  Here are a few cards I never got around to posting.  My husband has four brothers.  Three of them are triplets.  They recently had a birthday and so did my husband's father.  I couldn't resist using these amazing bird stamps.  We have five parrots and like to send things from "the flock".  I also couldn't resist using googly eyes on these adorable birds.  They were just screaming for it.  I LOVE googly eyes!!!  I have about a million of them.  I colored them using Inktense Blocks.  I don't use Inktense as often as I should.  They go on just like watercolors but they are much more vibrant.

Here are the insides of the cards.  I used Elizabeth Crafts birthday pop-up die.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
