CPS86 - Uh-Oh!

Yep, this bird's in a heap o' trouble!  He's fallen in the pot, he can't get out and his fate appears to be sealed 'cause that mosquitoe has a dead aim for his backside.  I totally forgot our son's nephew's birthday!!  Thought maybe a bit of humor might make up for my lack of memory.

I used the sketch from Card Positioning Systems - CPS86 and my Stamps by Judith.  I love these cute images because they're easy to build a scene with.  I just don't use them enough...have to remedy that.  They're so much fun! I stamped the grass on the left first, then the pot.  I masked the pot and stamped more grass.  After that, I stamped the pot again, masked it with a post-it note, then stamped the Dorky Bird upside down.  Cut them out and mounted with dimensionals on my base pot.  The mosquitoe has CE on it's wings.

Thought I was going to have two cards with this sketch but the second one just didn't want to come together on paper like it did in my head.  Does that happen to you?   I'll give it another go after I get some sleep. 4:30 a.m. was a long time ago! 

I'm going to bake some cookies and deliver them tomorrow with my card for Lynette -Teapot Tuesday - MMTPT116.  Hope you get a chance to make this special lady a card.

This clever sentiment is perfect for this fun card! I have this chick, but not sure about the flower pot!
