Day 7:  Is Happiness In A Cup 

I've had the crazy birds for quite some time but just didn't know what to do with them...but I told myself you have to use this for the Coffee BlogHop. I stamped, colored and fussy-cut Crazy Bird; but threw it in my stash and didn't pick it up again until I completed two other cards.  It's late this even; but I was determined this was my next card.  

I did the fancy die-cut on my design paper because I saw how pretty it was on one of the other Coffee BlogHop Cards #569 (click here).  

Crazy Bird needed a summer hat and since she appeared to be looking up I thought maybe I should make her a off to Cricut Design Space.  I needed a pole or tree to set the birdhouse on...brainstorm, why not a stack of cups.  And the sentiment seemed just right.  After I got all my pieces I planned it out on the card and then adhered everything with 3D Thin and Regular Foam Tape.
