Little Bird

Stretch N' Bubbles had a great blog hop on Wednesday (it's still going on so you can visit!), and they are starting sketches now.  SNB is also so generous - giving a freebie digital image every Wednesday.  How fun is that?  This is the sketch:
Here is what I came up with using the freebie digital image:

The brown polka dot paper is Jillibean, and the crystal blue cardstock is CTMH.  I used my Copics to color the little bird (this is still very new to me, so I am happy this was a little bird!).  The brad and sunflower are CTMH, and the large white flower is from Color Me Crazy.  The ribbon is random.  This card also fits the challenge over at OWH Stars and Stamps which is using blue and brown.  If you see some what seems like some far-off holidays shown in my cards, I am getting ready to send cards off to Operation Write Home.  They are in need of graduation cards by April 19th and Father's Day cards by May 15th.  Check out their website here if you are interested in helping!

Here are a couple of random cards that will be sent to OWH:

Paper is CTMH Veranda, the ribbon is random, and the stamp is a Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous.  I added Glossy Accents to the sticker rounds and "big."


This is also JilliBean paper along with CTMH Colonial White cardstock.  The flower stickease are CTMH Boom-Di-Ada, and the stamp is Hero Arts.
