Yep . . . I agree, that little birdy card is crying out for a greeting as it looks like he's chirping HAPPY BIRD-DAY (or something!). LOL!

Glad you enjoyed your day and celebrated in style.

Loving the glamorous ATC too.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

First a belated Happy Birthday Kathy, I have been on holiday so missed this somewhere along the way but hope you had a great day. I love your bird, such a fun image and he does seem to be wanting to chirp I also love your ATC with the very stylish lady and the starry background and silver pen doodling are perfect. x
