Birthday Bird…..

This time of the year I’ve a large number of birthday cards to make, so I thought that this cute image called “Bug Birthday – Bird 4” would be a great place to start.  This is also my card for the July “Bugaboo Crafty Challenge” at The Crafting Circle.Com.

If you haven’t checked out the new and improved “Bugaboo” Digital Online Store, make sure you do.  She’s always got great sales going on and some of the nicest digital stamps around…and don’t forget to check out her Free Image each Friday.

I chose to color this image with my Copic Markers and also my Prisma Colored Pencils. The patterned papers were all from a new stack by Echo Park that I bought at a recent Convention. The stack is Called “Birthday Wishes.”

I cut my colored image with a Spellbinder’s Scalloped Circle Die, plus I used the Die-Namics “Bottle Cap Numbers” by My Favorite Things to cut out the date.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you next time.  Good luck on the Challenge.

“Eat More Ham”…

…Can’t you just hear him saying bleating that?  I sure can.  I really felt for him when I saw this image for the first time and just had to have it for a Thanks Giving card.  I have some very quirky friends who will love it.

I made this card for our current monthly “Just-For-Fun Challenge” at The Crafting Circle.  We always have some nice sketches to follow.

The image is a digital one by Boobel and is named “Turkey”. He is priced at only $1.50 right now. I’ve colored him with my Copic Markers, a few Prisma Colored Pencils, and I highlighted him with black and red Sakura Pens. I also used Color Box Chestnut Roan Ink to highlight the image. I fussy-cut and popped him with foam tabs, and I couldn’t resist giving him some Google Eyes.

The papers are from a Cloud 9 Stack called “Speciality Papers” and is quite old. It’s a great stack because it covers all 4 seasons.

The letters are cut from the Bottle Cap Letter Dies by Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The assorted Sequins, which come in several boxed color sets, are also from MFT. I also used 2 of my Spellbinders Nestabilities Square Dies because I can never get them all cut the same size! LOL.
