Silly Bird.

Here's something from my very first Hambo Stamps order - back before I ever imagined I'd be on their design team! I loved this silly bird as soon as I saw him! And by the way, that's what the other half of this sentiment says on the inside of the card - "Silly Bird." So cute! My DH even chuckled when I showed him this card tonight. And since these are supposed to be silly birds, I decided to make them even sillier with the bold colors and a little Stickles glitter on their beaks. I seem to have a thing for repeating Hambo animals in threes on my cards, I did it with the cute seahorse recently, and with my favorite little elephant a while back. I guess I figure if I love an image, coloring it once is fun, but coloring it three times is like a party in the stamp room! I found the fun pom-pon ribbon by the yard at Archivers a while back. And drawing the little dots around both rectangles was an afterthought, but I think I like it! Thanks for stopping by today - and thanks to all of you who have just recently subscribed!! Yowsers, I'm totally shocked about how many new Feedblitz subscribers I've had this weekend - I guess when Leslie speaks, people listen! :-) Now I am feeling some extra pressure to be creative and interesting and keep you all around for at least a little while... ;-) (BTW - I *heart* Leslie!!!)
