Hummingbird in Flight…

You knew there had to be a hummingbird card after the butterfly last week…

Today’s card is vertical rather than horizontal like last week and using the Strip Adhesive makes it easier to pull the insert.

Easy to slide and watch the magic…

Glamour close up…

and a side view showing the dimension.

I can’t wait to send this card to someone and hear their reaction!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Fresh Fig, Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay
  • Stamps:  You Move Me and Tabs for Everything
