Birdie on a branch

 Hello!  I'm back to share another Christmas card with you. This time I'm using this cutie patootie birdie!  Isn't he the cutest?  This is a digital imaged purchased  here.  I have several of her 'birdie' images, just need to find the time to colour them.  

I used prisma colour pencils to colour.  For papers I just used some scraps from my basket, and I already had the aqua blue die cut, it was also in my basket of odds and sods and worked perfectly for my card.

For the sentiment I stamped it using black versafine.  The sentiment  is from PTI as are the double end banner dies.

To finish I added some white fun flock to his hat and glitter along the branch to represent glistening snow.

I am off until Thursday, so I plan on getting a big chunk of card orders done.  Between 2 friends I have 24 Christmas cards and 8 birthday, not counting all the cards I need for my sale basket at work, and ones for myself. I really have my work cut out for me.  I need to find some easier cards and mass produce!

Thanks for stopping in today.  Enjoy your weekend. Winter is upon us here in Ontario, snow for some, rain for others, but temperatures down near 0 over night and not much warmer during the day until next weekend when it warms up again.

Pauline, I agree, he is a cutie. I love the soft colours. Your scrap papers were made for this card. Enjoy your time off. It seems you have your days planned out for you already. It is a busy schedule. Happy card making. Stay warm.

Ack! Love this bird on its crooked winter branch! So cute! The flocking looks very soft, and love your sponging and how you did the sentiment. This is my kind of critter. Wow, that's a lot of card orders! You will definitely have to figure something simple but cute/pretty. BTW, always love your Prisma pencil coloring, too. I've been in such a hurry lately I can't seem to take time to pull them out. Something has to change! Enjoy your cozy home in the wintry weather!

I first saw these birdies here on your blog and I went and downloaded a bunch of them. Haven't colored them up yet, but sure want to. They're so cute! Your double layered tag is so cool. I'm going to have to borrow that. :-) Hugs!

Oh, Pauline, I have these cuties too and just LOVE them! And you've really colored this one up to perfection! Just makes me giggle seeing him! And what perfect papers for him and a great layout! I love it...and him! Hehe! Hugs, and stay warm...and I promise not to tell you how our weather is here in South Florida! :-)
