Christmas Birdbrain!.

Good morning everyone. It has been a great weekend. It was all rainy yesterday and getting colder. It was wonderful!! Bailey is feeling better, so she just hung out at home, cleaned up a bit, did her laundry. Michael worked all day. Kevin and I watched racing... V8's and MotoGP this weekend. We watched the short V8 races yesterday and the MotoGP practices and qualifying. This morning we are watching the final V8 race, then we will watch the MotoGP races. We have to watch the Moto3 to see if Kent gets the championship. I'm hoping he does it, but it seems like nerves have got him in a bind or something these last few weeks. And then of course the MotoGP race. I also did a bit of crafting yesterday. I was able to get a few cards finished. It was a good day! I'm hoping to get a bit of crafting done today too, because Monday just comes way too fast! And once Monday arrives it is so much harder to get any real crafting done. I wish I could spend my days crafting instead of working LOL!!  Oh well!!

Have a great rest of your weekend everyone!! Here is my card for today:

For this card I have used Deck The Halls which is the Digital Stamp of the Month from From The Heart. I just love these Birdbrains! I've colored it with Copic Markers. I used some charcoal to ground the image. I've added some Wink of Stella to the ornaments. The Merry Christmas is a Paper Smooches stamp that was stamped with Versamark Ink and then embossed with WOW Green Glitter Embossing Powder. I've added a few shiny dew drops. The bottom is a border die from My Favorite Things I believe. I've added some red gems to that. I've also inked the edges of the paper and the die cut. On the inside I've added the wonderful sentiment that was part of the Deck The Halls set. I've inked those papers as well. I've added some additional dew drops to bring it all in together.

Copic Markers Used: 
  • Bird: Y00, Y11, Y15, Y18
  • Gold Ball: Y11, Y15, YR23, YR24
  • Silver Ball: C1, C3, C5
  • Red Ball: R22, R24, R29
  • Green Ball: G16, G19, G29
  • Beak: YR04, YR07, YR09
