Bird Happy and Challenge Time

Hi everyone! Did you know that squigglefly's design team has started to have a challenge on Monday? Every Monday one of the senior design team leaders will come up with a challenge for three members of the design team! This week it's a sketch by Kim. You can play along too! Stop by the squigglefly blog today to see what it's all about! I had a little time after work yesterday to play and here's the card I made for the challenge

(click to enlarge)

I used Peter Puppy and some digital paper from freepetprojects.com to make this. The bone is cut out freehand and then sponged with brown inks. The inside of the card reads "I was a bonehead!"

Now, are you ready to see what I did with today's newest image release? It is called Home Tweet Home, and I think this is a great image because it can be used for so many different things. You can welcome someone to their new home, make it welcoming spring, or even a baby card (well the bird is nesting isn't it?)!
I personally used this to send to someone who had just purchased a home traveling around the United States in an RV for many years. I think this little bird looks really happy to finally have a place to decorate and make his own just like my friend is.
She's a stamper too and has had to really make do with essential supplies and little work and storage space. Now she has a whole room to spread out and play in!

I colored with copics, chalked the sky, added some stickles, and did a lot of piercing along the bottom and right side. I folded down the corner at the top and held it in place with a little prima flower and brad. The Happy Hello is from a clear Stampendous set, and the designer paper is from Basic Grey.
The month is not even half over and I'm already saddened by the thought of the one a days being over. It's just so much fun to go to my computer and see what new image is there is play with!
Enjoy your day, and thanks for stopping by!

Bonehead??? HaHaHaHa....you come up with some of the cutest sayings! That little doggy looks so pitiful...it's like he's saying to himself, "If I give them the puppy dog eyes, maybe I won't be in so much trouble"...LOL Love the card :~)

Three cheers for your friend...she's not going to know what to do with all of her new space.(It will be full before she knows it)...

Have a great day!
