a female version. . . .

of my previous "bird crazy" card:


I just can't stop playing with these adorable birds!  This time I used my Derwent Inktense pencils to watercolor the bird on Tim's watercolor paper.  The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter and the heart is a Memory Box die. The patterned paper is from the same Basic Grey 6 x 6 pad I used for the other bird card.  I added wink of Stella to the bird and heart to glam her up a bit.

Playing in the following challenges:

Simon Say Stamp:  red and pink challenge.


Casology:  love.


Addicted to Stamps:  anything goes.

Adding one more challenge:

The Paper Players:  CAS with a bird.  Thanks, Judy!!




It has been snowing all day here and the temps will be dropping below zero tonight!  May have to make more bird cards to keep me occupied.  :*)

Have a great weekend!!
