Hey there Chickies!

Hello all and happy Friday! I don't know if you "tuned in" last Friday but if you missed it, you can click HERE if you want to catch up! I decided to color up Power Poppy's Chickadee in Barberry for Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Color Challenge. I didn't make a card, but promised to show the card once I actually put it together and so....... here it is!


Because this image is on the large side, I decided to keep my layout rather simple and just dressed it up with some decorative kraft and red papers. I added a half oval that was die cut thanks to a double stitched oval die and the sentiment was from the Power Poppy Poppies stamp set. I thought it worked since birds can "pop in" can't they? ;-) I added a little twine and a wooden button and... ta da! Done! 

Here's a close up of the little guy!



You can click HERE if you want to see what markers I used to color up this cute image! Sorry to be so short and sweet today! I happen to know there's more out there in blogland for you to see since my stampin' sisters -- the Bloomies -- have been in their craft rooms this week and are ready to share! Stop on by and see......

Ta-Da is not enough for this beautifully inspiring card. There should be a drum roll and maybe trumpets. Yes, Trumpets! this image can be used over and over all year long. specially if you live in Wisconsin as I do. Wonderfully colored and splendid.

You made this into such a beautiful card, Julie! That chickadee is just the sweetest. Wanted to say happy birthday tomorrow, too. I had a card all ready to send... wrote in it and everything. Then I remembered that you weren't at your old address anymore. Sheesh! Maybe next year...
