All Occasion card Using CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp & Thin Cuts

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is enjoying their lives and finding time to craft.  Crafting is my sanity.  I don't know what I would do without it.  I wish at times that I could spend all my time crafting; but I know that is not realistic.  I love crafting.  It makes me happy.  

I am obsessed with this CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp & Thin Cuts.  I don't know why; but I had to create more of them.  I tried to create a similar card like the one on page 24 of our current Idea book.  Mine doesn't look like that one; but I like how it turned out.  And then I decided to create a second one; because I had another strip of the stripe left from cutting too big of a piece for the first card.  I had a lot of fun making two and trying to be creative.
