Too Much Christmas Candy

     When I first saw this silly bird at Bugaboo Stamps/Catch the Bug, I knew without question that his expression was a direct result of too much Christmas candy!  I remember the years when my kids (grandkids & even great grands now as well) went straight for their stockings on Christmas morning because that's where Santa always put all the candy.  Often, unless parental control was exerted, they ended up looking slightly nauseated just like this bird and had no interest in the Christmas feast when it was spread on the table.  :-D

I used the sketch from Stella Says Sketch
adjusted for a square card instead of an A2.

Pre-colored image
Image cut and punched with Fiskars corner punch
Red, embossed mat cut with Spellbinders square die
Polka dot ribbon is a scrap from the basket
DP strip across the top is from Doodlebug
Double loop bow w/ button, hand sewn
Sentiment is a computer font, hand cut
