Oh my gosh Gretchen, you don't know how badly I wanted instructions for these birds! When I saw them in the IB&C, I thought, "Gee, you would think they would have posted directions for these on Stampin Connections." And now you have come to our rescue!! Thank you so much for sharing with all of us -- most people would sell the directions. Congratulations on one-million hits, and may you have that many more coming in the days ahead. I can see why so many visit, you have such great projects.

Love your blog; just discovered it. I sent you an email asking if you ever made a Christmas card using the bear or moose stamps in Stampin Up's Pines stamp set. I wanted to know if you have a tutorial on making a card using these stamps, especially the bear and moose stamps.

Congrats on your millionth subscriber. Love your site and beautiful inspirations. I am a fairly new cardmaker and was a SU demonstrator for a few months.

Thanks for the free bird tutorial.
