Cute Birds Hello*

Good evening everyone! And a very happy Tuesday evening! Monday was a good day at work. It was pretty quiet and I was able to get a lot done. Monday evening I picked up Bailey from school.. she started conditioning for her High School Lacrosse team. She will be doing a bit of running, but getting in shape! Today we picked her up as well.  Today I worked from home so I was able to have lunch with the hubby and Father-In Law. And in the morning it is back to work for a couple of days. I took off Friday and Monday for the Labor Day Holiday. And to spend a nice long last weekend with my father-in-law before he heads back to Australia. Alright... on to my card today. I hope you all have a great rest of your week!

Little birds:

For this card I have again used Drawn With Character! :D  This is Bird House Spring Love. I used Copic markers to color the image. I did a bit of layering on the image. I cut around the image with a My Favorite Thing Stamp Stack die. I inked the pink on the inside of the die. The bird house die is from Spellbinders. The feathers I believe are from My Favorite Things. I also inked pink around these. All of the papers are from my scrap boxes. I think that was almost the last of my paisley paper. I really LOVE paisley right now. I added the various flowers and the crystals. The 'hi' is from a Thickers pack. On the inside I did a bit of pink inking around the edge and added a few crystals.

Copic Colors Used:
  • Bird House: E30, E31, E33, E35, E37; W5, W7, W9
  • Roof, Perch and Leaves: YG03, YG17, YG67, G29
  • Flowers and Bird: RV21, RV23, R43, RV14
  • Flower Center: Y11, Y15, Y19, YR09
  • Pole: N3, N5, N7, N9
  • Bird: B00, B01, B04, B06
  • Beaks: YR02, YR04, YR09

Hey Susan. Great card. I have always liked this Drawn with Character image. I really like the embellishments of flowers, feathers and dies that you have chosen to highlight it with. The Hi sentiment is perfect for the Big Sentiment part of the Brown Sugar Challenge. Thanks for joining us this week!
