It's all birthdays at the moment!!

Just a quickie to show you my Dad's birthday card - it's just one birthday after another for me at the moment!!  Dad's a really keen bird watcher and seeing as I haven't used this Tim Holtz birdcage die yet, I thought I'd better show it some love! 
I've seen lots of these gorgeous criss-cross cards around lately so thought I'd give it a go, following a fab little tutorial by Gio.  I used double sided papers for speed and as I got this pennant die from Whiff of Joy today, which Gio also uses, I couldn't resist placing it just as Gio has!!!

The circle birthday stamp is by Cat's Life Press and that also arrived today from Crafty Emma's store - love it, and the super quick service!!

Talk about taking inspiration and believe me, I really have!  Gio is one of my fave bloggers so go and take a peek if you don't already follow her!
