Little Birdie Inchie

It's a beautiful and bright spring day here in British Columbia.

I wanted to share a cute little inchie birdie that I JUST love.  I think it might be my favorite Kim Hughes bird of all time...and she illustrated a lot of birds!  :)  Edited to add:  I am such a geek.  I just had to go and count just how many birds she drew.  If I count every kind of bird I think she drew at least forty nine!!

This little birdie was stamped with Coffee Archival Ink and paper pieced, colored with Prisma Pencils and covered with Glossy Accents.  There is a little faux stitching in the background and some Frosted Lace Stickles were added to my Doodlebug sequin flower which was adorned with a green Swarovski Crystal.  Paper is 6x6 Sprout (Memory Box).

As an aside, if you like this bird as much as I do and want it facing the other way, there is a set where is was reversed called Mocha Chica.

Happy Tuesday Friends,

Home Sweet Home

It's been a few days because Blogger has been giving me fits!  Looks like all is sorted now though.

I wanted to share a card that was published a few years ago in Paper Crafts Magazine.  (my favorite, btw)  I have no idea what issue although I think it might have been Card Creations?  :^)

It was a "welcome to the neighbourhood" theme and featured, what else...an inchie!  *tee hee*  I am pretty sure that this paper is no longer available (Offbeat, Basic Grey) - speaking of which, I REALLY wish that paper companies would do more that ONE run of a product, but I digress.
