Spring Fever

Hi all! For some reason it seems like it should be later in the week than only Tuesday. Maybe I have a case of Spring Fever or something! To celebrate Spring what could be cuter than this little Baby Bird Bath Time image drawn by Fawn Palmer?


I just love this image and really enjoyed coloring it. I used Copic markers and some glitter on the butterflies and stickles on the center of the flowers. the sky and ground are chalked, and then I stamped grass sprigs over the chalk. I printed the sentiment out on my computer and then die cut it with a circle die and then chalked it while it was still in the die so I'd have the white border.

I used a Stampin Up! roller fro the background rather than using any designer paper.  I think this would make a cute baby or baby shower card too.

I told you about the new Mystery Challenge going on at Squigglefly's blog yesterday.  If I were entering this card in the challenge I would have  21 points!  If you want to have some, go play along!  Just make a card and don't worry about the mystery items - you're sure to have one of them!

This is so sweet, that little guy/gal is adorable. I'd love a pretty flower bird bath like this in our yard, well maybe not the baby in it, I'd be hugging him/her. ;)

Hugs, Lori m
