Springtime Little Birdie

Hello peeps.

I had to do a quick birthday card to post off to a friend today so I've done a CAS design using You're so Tweet from Little Claire.

I bought this stamp at a craft show a couple of years ago and came across it while looking for something else. It's perfect for this time of year.

There are tiny little areas to colour on this image so it was definitely a job for my Promarkers and the fine tips. Birds - March Hare and Sandstone
Fence - Ice Grey 2 
Hearts - Rose pink
Sun & flowers - Tulip yellow/Daffodil bloom
Leaves - Meadow Green

I've decoupaged a few elements to give a bit of dimension and also added florist wire (attached with silicone glue underneath the decoupage layers)

The sentiment is from a Personal Impressions set, I think it's one of Marion Emberson's designs.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog #266 Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion #301 - Always Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp (Wed)  Anything Goes
Sassy Studio Designs  #322 Anything Goes
The Craft Barn  Clean and Simple w. flower and a sentiment
Crafty Friends Challenge #25 -FLORAL - FEATURE A FLOWER(S)
Eureka Stamps #182 CAS
Thanks for stopping by,

p.s. I'd like to say a huge 'Thank You' to the lovely volunteers at Paper Playful for their marvellous list of challenges. I spent ages building up my own list of challenge links last year so I could keep track of which challenges I'd entered, what the rules were etc. I've updated this faithfully every day with the current themes and then last night Blogger decided to wipe the entire page contents. Pressing undo didn't bring it back and then it very helpfully auto-saved the blank page and I lost everything. Aarrrrgh !

Thankfully after a couple of hours cutting and pasting from Paper Playful, I have most of the list back again (and still some semblance of sanity).

Oh, yes, I can definitely relate to those computer woes! Maybe we need to do a series of "computer condolence" cards!
