With Sympathy Bird Cage Card

This month ends my guest designer spot at My Cute Stamps. Thanks to Holly for having me, it's been a pleasure! Be sure to check out the site, it's been totally revamped and looks great! Fun blog too!!

I've been working in my stamp room, trying to fill a few empty spots in my card stash basket. I just love these serene images from the set called Ashley's Blossoms.
The branch with blossoms is so nicely illustrated. It makes the perfect backdrop for the bird cage. For the focal image, I stamped the bird cage onto some K & Company patterned paper. I then stamped the butterfly and glittered it. I adhere this to my card front using pop dots. The sympathy image was stamped in black ink. A little more patterned paper and machine stitching finish off the card.
Well, it's a busy day for me so I need to head out the door. Have a great day everyone, hope you get to relax this weekend. I've been working on lots and lots of projects just for me. Feels good!

Parrot Cages – Better Living For Your Parrots
There are many people who love their parrots at their best and for this they want to give them very good living, so that they can feel the comfort and pleasure in their living. This is possible if you give them natural environment and they don’t feel as they are in any small cage. For this, theses people search for very special parrot cages and they seek some better information regarding these cages. Well, if you are also from that category, who want to buy a very special parrot cage and seek some information, then you are at right place, because here you will find very useful information that how to look for a special cage for your parrot.

First thing you need to consider for buying the parrot cage is to see the size of your parrot and the number of parrots you want to keep in the cage. If your parrot is large and you want to keep more than two parrots, then try to look for large size cage, because this will keep your parrots in better way. Other very important thing to consider is to look for the safety of your bird that how safe they will be in cage. Parrot cages are made of different materials like metal, steel, and wood as well. So, try to buy the cage, which may not harm your parrot from its structure. However, safety of parrot inside the cage is also very important to consider, which means how safe your parrot is in the cage from other harmful creatures.
