Birds...

אילו ציפורים אשר עפות מעל הים
אילו ציפורים היו דוברות כבני אדם
אלו מן שירים היו ודאי לציפורים
איזה קרנבל היה לכל המשוררים...

If birds that fly over the ocean,
If birds only could talk like humans;
what songs the birds will probably will have
what a carnival will be for all poets...

Why I'm telling you about this song? Because "Frida and Numah" cummuna had a swap about birds. The girl that organized the swap gave only the subject and told us we can make what ever we wanted!

I've made a greeting card folder. I got the idea from Dawn Griffith blog, if you don't know her blog I urge you to go and check it out, she is wonderful artist!!!

There is my version for the folder and the cards I've made to go with it...

The foldr cover



The inside, I have used my Cricut to cut the words...







and the cards...

I've made six of them, when in each two of them I've used the same style.





a close up on the birds - my own free drawing...







for these two cards I've used a shopping gift from pottery barn isn't that a cool way to recycle!





a close up on the 3D bird...



and the card I've made for the girl I sent the swap... I quoted the same line from the song that open the post.



and the envelope...



I hope the girl that get the swap will enjoy it! Can't say who she is cause she didn't get it yet and don't want to spoil her surprise!!!

Enjoy ****** :-)
