Getting Punchy With A Tweet Bird

Hi everyone! I'm going to share TWO cards with you today! The first one is the card I made for Heather's Get Punchy challenge. I used the free image from Revi Devi Paat. If you enter the challenge you can win a prize, and you get entered twice if you use one of Revi's images AND there's a FREE ONE so why not join in?

I colored with Copic markers and used stickles. When I printed it I didn't know what I wanted the bird to be twittering about, so I left it blank. Later I wrote in the "TWEET! TWEET!" and then printed the silly punny sentiment with my computer. Do you get it? There are two tweets so it's two tweet! yeah, Chesney doesn't like it either! LOL!

Anyway, The featured stamper challenge on Splitcoast Stampers had a card that another little bird of Revi's was perfect for! I used the Pheasant Suprise bird and colored with chalk. The eye is a half black pearl and really is what makes the bird look so darn cute!

Lots of doodling on this card, which I love to do but don't think to do unless I am casing a particular card that has it. I also love the shaped cards and making this card gave me some ideas for some cute Christmas cards. If you want to see the card I cased you can click HERE

Enjoy your day, and thanks for looking!
