My Sunshine

I love these Tim Holtz crazy birds and can't stop playing with them! I bought them along with a few other crafty items from Lisa at the Purple Place. She's selling her crafty items very reasonably on her blog. Right now the sale page is taking a break while she gets the rest she needs, but she'll have it back up in a few days when she feels better. Check the details here. 

I found this cute Penny Black hedgie image in my stash and decided to pair it with this silly bird. The hedgie is looking up, and the bird is looking down, so together they're a hoot! LOL I covered the boot with crackle glossy accents and fussy cut the image to place on the card base. The sun die is by Lil Inker, with a center cut with a Poppystamps Stitched Holly Leaves and Berries die. The flying bird was cut with a Gina Marie designs die and the sentiment was in my stash box, all ready to put on this card. The sky was sponged with Ranger tumbled glass ink and the bird and hedgie were colored with Copics.

I'm entering this into the Shopping our Stash #254 challenge which is "elements." From the water, earth, fire, wind elements. I chose earth.

Have yourself a wonderful Friday and thanks for stopping by!

This card put a smile on my face for sure. The bird and the hedgie just do not know what to make of each other.

A super card Carol, you have created a fabulous scene - I would be a bit worried if I was that little hedgehog!
Have a lovely weekend.

ThePurplePlace said... are so kind Carol, thank you!! If anyone hops over to my blog, you'll find the my "Goodies for Sale" page is temporarily closed, but will be open again soon!

I am taking a little break to catch up on some rest and a VERY busy week with new orders!

The crafting community has been awesome and I'm greatly touched by all the kindness and support that has been extended to me!

Love the way you have paired these stamps. That bird looks as if it is scolding that hedgie! Or else giving him some sage advice!!!

Great card, Carol.
