Birthday Card Using Digi Stamps 4 Joy "Friends" New Release

Hello blogland!  I hope everyone is doing well.  I am finally feeling a little better.  Still having numbness and tingling; but pain is better for now.  We have been having gorgeous spring weather here in Southern CA; so I have been able to get out and enjoy riding my bike a few days this past week.

It is time for another DS4J New Release.  I chose this adorable bird scene - DS4J "Friends ?", to create a birthday card for my grandson.  Be sure to check out the other new releases; plus all the fabulous creations from the DT.  I also used a new sentiment that Margy created on the inside of the card.  I just loved this new DS4J sentiment "Sweeter Than Candy". Plus, I had a CTMH stamp set that went with it perfectly.  I normally don't crowd the inside of the card; but since this may be the last year I can call my grandson sweet; I decided to go all out! LOL!  I am sure it won't be long before he tells me he isn't a kid anymore.  They grow up so fast.
