Merry Monday #219 - Use A Bird on Your Christmas Card

Hello friends.  Sue is our hostess this week at Merry Monday and she would like to see a bird(s) on your Christmas card.


I have quite a few bird stamps because I really do love birds (we feed and watch the birds all year long at our house!!), but for this challenge I had to use a new Northwoods stamp I had just gotten featuring a small Winter birdhouse image.  There is a bird in this image...you just have to look really close!!  :0)



Can you see my little sparrow perched on the edge of his snowy house?  Such a simple image, but I just fell in love with it!  I colored it with a few Copics, added some glitter, and then die cut it with a Lil Inkers circle die.  I pop dotted it on to a couple more circle die cuts, and then added to a card base with some Cherry Cobbler gingham and a "merry" die cut from PTI's Wonderful Words: Holiday Die Collection.  Also added a thin strip of red glitter paper and a tiny red bird also from the glitter paper perched on the "r" of my sentiment.  A pretty simple card, but I really like how it turned out!

So how about getting those bird stamps out and playing along with us this week?!  Only 9 more weeks till Christmas my friends...time to get moving!!  And we have all the inspiration you need to get going right HERE!

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
