Wow - can you believe we are into another month already - May is my favourite month as it just so happens to be my birthday month!  And to celebrate I'm delighted that we are sponsored this month over at Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe by Concord and 9th who have very generously given us a $50 gift certificate for one lucky winner. I hope you will all join in.

Our Grid this month has been chosen by Susan Simpson and these were her choices:

 A lovely spring set of themes to choose and I went with a lovely little stamp set from Clearly Besotted called You're So Tweet II.  I started off my card using a Scenic Clouds stencil from Inkylicious - I used some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean.  It's my first time using this stencil and I really liked how it came out.  I used the leaves from a bird stamp set I have - sorry I can't remember the name of it. 

 I then stamped the little birds in SU Basic Gray and cut them out.  I used Tri-Blend Spectrum Noir markers in Citrus to colour them in - one of my daughter's favourite songs when she was little was Yellow Bird - only it was sung in Welsh and was called Aderyn Melyn and this was in my head using these birds so they had to be yellow.  I hand drew the little musical notes and added some jewels bought from The Range.   The sentiment is also from the same set.

I look forward to seeing what you all do with this lovely grid - and good luck with the Competition.
