Howdy do friends! How are you this fine day? I am good, it is always fun to be here on the blog.
Before I get to my card today, I am wondering if there are any bird watchers out there? Though my father is and my good family friend is, I myself can't claim to be one. In fact, I never really appreciated them much. That is until I went to Thailand and even more so Costa Rica. I never even imagined the colors, sizes, shapes and splendor birds come in. My two favorite sightings were seeing a hummingbird in a nest (so tiny!) and the Resplendent Quetzal (you must google this beauty!). So now you could say I have a better appreciation for birds. One of my fave local birds, besides the hummers are the sweet Chickadee. You can totally identify it by it's call because it says, "Chicka-dee-dee-dee." Small and sweet.
Today's card is modeled after that sweet chickadee. Here is a photo of one compliments of google.
Now admittedly, I went a little crazy with the yellow on this, but I still like the outcome. This stamp was one of my Two Paper Diva must haves, it is called Sing Like a Bird. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. I enjoyed coloring with my copics and setting it up against this SUPER old-school SU! Designer Paper (I am talking like 7 years old...I think). The color combo paired perfectly with the bird and the blue backdrop. I also added the TPD stamp Home Family Blessing, which was a new release in January of this year. Throw in a doily, a pewter clip and some twine and you've got yourself a card with a bit of a shabby chic feel.
I'll most likely be giving this one to my Papa, who will greatly appreciate it.
Now, head on over to Two Paper Divas Blog for DT Wednesday to see all the creations the ladies have made up!
