Birthday Birdies

Yeuch, it's been a really dark, drizzly wet oul' day today ... definitely an afternoon for putting the heat on, a wee movie on the telly, and forty winks ;)
Poor wee Ruby hardly put her nose out the door all day, not that I'm complaining - she was at the groomers yesterday, so at least it's another day where she's still white!!

My image is one of the new Whipper Snapper stamps I got before Christmas ... just needed a quick colour with copics and a touch of gloss to their beaks.  The large solid star and marker at the top are dies from my new stash of dies from Paper Smooches - 'cardbooking dies' which I'm loving :)

Layout from Sketch Saturday #293

Love your new dies, Lynne. Been on the net again ordering? :-)
Your card is too cute.

I can imagine how the nasty weather dirties up that white coat Ruby wears. She's too beautiful to get dirty.
