Bird Flu?

     I have to share a silly kind of "Get Well" card with you today, using some of my recent favorite digis, "Birdbrains" found at From the Heart.


     There's no particular reason for this card other than my stash of "Get Well" cards is seriously depleted and this image just cried out to be on such a card.  :-D

     This time I used colored pencils to color the image but I did use a ProMarker to ink the edges of the die cut.  The doily is made with a die from Cheery Lynn, cut from Dark Chocolate CS.  The polka dot ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I tied the lace and satin bows from scrap bits in my stash.  The little heart button has also been in my stash quite a while -- for some reason I forget to use buttons as embellishments, don't ask me why.

     Challenges:
Art Impressions
Cheery Lynn
Craft-Dee Bowz
Crafty Catz
Cutie Pie
Love to Scrap
Paper Minutes

     I hope this one brings a smile to your face and have a great day.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Well NC I love your card. The bird is adorable. Love the sentiment. It goes perfectly with the entire theme of the card. It's adorable. I forget to use buttons most of the time but am really working on that one. And yes this brought a smile to my face.

With hugs and smiles

Oh I love this. So cutely sarcastic. My son would love this one as he has the flu today yet he still mustered the strength to make his coffee.
Hugs & smiles,
