Fusion #11

Can you believe we are 11 challenges in?!  Not me, no way!  I simply love playing with this challenge, it is so very fun... Every. Single. Time.

Now I am not typically a Christmas card in May kinda girl, but when I got a look at this week's inspiration, I simply couldn't look at it any other way.  I felt that if I didn't go Christmas I might as well not even participate!  I shudder at the thought! LOL!  Here is the challenge inspiration:




So here is my holiday card in response. I included the colors the music notes and the birds.  And no stamping here, can you believe it?!  I just slapped on this sticker from My Mind's Eye because it was perfect!




You know the drill, create either with the picture, sketch or BOTH!   Then head on over to Fusion and link it up.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!  AND...if you haven't check out all the other ladies creations you really need to do that- they are AWESOME!!!!

As an aside, Chicadees are one of my favorite birds, they are so cute and fun and I love that even I can identify them by their song.  It really isn't hard, "chicka-dee-dee-dee."  Go take a listen outside if they frequent your neck of the woods and see if you can't hear them calling. I am also quite partial to hummingbirds (amazing feat of nature right there) and the Resplendant Quetzal in Costa Rica (which I've seen in person!!!).  Today's Question is-  what is your favorite bird?

Thanks for visiting!
