On today's Hop we are featuring cards made with Bird images by Tiffany Doodles!

For my blog hop card I choose to use the Birdie Wings digi stamp.  This is such a cute bird to color and also a fun one to paper piece.  I did a little bit of stitching on this shabby chic patchwork card.
All papers in this card are from Basic Gray's June Bug series.  I started by cutting my main red polka dot piece in 4.25" circle.
Then I punched 14 circles with my 1" circle punch!
Then I cut 3 circles of the same size to make my patches in the middle to be sewed on.

Then I die cut my yellow center piece.

I placed my 1" circles face down and used a plain piece of cardstock cut in a 4.25" circle as a base to glue my small circles onto.  I layed it out like the pic below as perfectly as possible.

Then I held down the big circle and drew a circle around it completely on top of the little circles like below. 

I drew this circle so that I would make sure I glued each one down evenly and in the correct alignment!

Then it would look perfect like below!

Next, I glued my red piece down in the center.  I also cut my 3 patchwork circles into quarters and choose 4 pieces to use that looked decent together.  I layed them out on the card to see how they would look!

Next, i colored my birdie with copics. Zoom pic to see colors used.  I cut the birdie out with my scissors and then outlined any white edges with my black sharpie pen!

Here it is close up!

I also colored a little bluebird...

I also colored an orange poppy!

And a red poppy!

Then I did my machine stitching on the card (which I am NOT good at!!) LOL  After I did that I decided to hand stitch the little yellow piece so that it would look decent.

I love hand stitching on my cards!

Then I printed my sentiment from the computer, die cut it, & colored my paper the same color as the birdie.  I assembled my card together and tried out the various little digis I colored!

I hope you like this 'tweet' little card and feel inspired to make one of your own!

These are so beautiful. The colours you used are HOT! Wish I was brave enough to try machine sewing. I really love the free and distressed look it gives. Yours looks exactly like I'd like mine to look!
