And ..... A Partridge In A Pear Tree!!!!

Hello all and happy Friday! I am going to be super short and sweet today -- our house got a bit of a bug all of a sudden and we have a very sad case of the sickies. We're a sorry lot!

I did want to share however a brand new creation using one of Power Poppy's brand new digital stamps, Partridge In A Pear Tree! It's a beauty, see?



And, here's my creation! 


And here's a close up, so you can see this darling birdie!



I knew I wanted a simple design since I printed this beauty a little larger than how it comes. I colored it all up with Copic markers and I hate to laugh about this but I kind of  "made up" the colors of this partridge! I googled and man, these birds come in all kinds of shades! Just click on the link and you'll see what I mean.

After coloring, I found some green polka dot decorative paper, some Hug Snug ribbon in white and a fun little gem and I felt that this was really all I needed for this one. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Spice It Up.  I thought something small on a tag might be a perfect little addition!

And that, my friends, is it! A few of my fellow Bloomies whipped up some creativity this week as well! Hop on over to their "places" to take a gander! And, while you're at it -- tell the ever-so-talented Tosha Leyendekker -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I am blessed to share this special day with her! Never met anyone before she came along that was born on the same day! ;-)

Happy birthday to you, Julie! Not fun to have a sick house on your birthday. Hope everyone's well very soon. Beautiful card with this image! Love how you colored the bird. I, too, was surprised how many different kinds of partridges there are.

Oh, Julie, first of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You and Tosh are birthday twins just like Cindy Lawrence and I are! Cool! Hope you have a wonderful day and carry it through the whole weekend! I just love your card and love your coloring and how you've used that wonderful polka dot DP for the border...love polka dots! And what a sweet sentiment tag with ribbon and gem! And you sure are right about partridges. They are all different colors, so it's nice to know we have lots of latitude. Love yours! Hugs and enjoy!
