Now "Flip" That Bird!

In my previous post, I did promise to make another Birdcage card and it has to be different from the ones I made. Yes, I said that A LOT about the birdcage cards-LOL. Well, here it is.
I asked my tech support guy (aka my 15-year old David) to help me "flip" the image of the bird from the Birdcage digit kit. What a bargain to get so many images for just $2 US! So instead of one bird facing to the left, I can have two birds facing each other! Eureka!!

My David left yesterday afternoon for Italy ( I was sad, he was not). This was his luggage which he packed all by himself.

Do I see an OCD( Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) in the making?
EXTRA-here's what David's teacher's latest e-mail about his trip: "We had a very long night and day of travel, but arrived safely in Sorrento, had a nice dinner and are off to bed. Early wake up call (5:45!) for our ferry to Capri! I bought my mom some German magazines in Frankfurt and already have my first receipt in my envelope, to which I will most certainly add more, as will the kids"!

Love your card, Virginia. Thanks for the photo of David's luggage, he is a bit neat isn't he? (My boys would have stuffed everything in a duffel bag and been quite pleased with themselves.) Your boy is on a grand adventure, sure to be the first of many.

SO SWEET, Virginia! Your cards are DARLING as always, with just the right amount of, "VIRGINIA" added. David's suitcase brings a HUGE SMILE to my face! I think I should hire out his services when I'm traveling! He's AMAZING!! I HAVE to share this post with Molly! We pack like we are MOVING to our destination! We've even had to BUY luggage to come home with! KUDDOS to DAVID for his STREAM-LINED PACKING SYSTEM!!! If that's OCD, I want to SUFFER, too! Love, Karen xoxoox
