A Little Birdie

A Little Birdie

Hi All,

Ever since February’s Bird Challenge, I am on a bird roll! I’ve created more cards with birds in the last 6 weeks than in my entire card-making career.

Today’s bird actually comes from a bunny set called Hoppiness. I used this set for the March Pastel Challenge on this card.

Here is a close-up of the little guy with glasses:

    I like your bird. I’m also on a bird kick right now and have been for several months. Your card design was very clever with the bird sitting on top of the balloon. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter. It’s unfortunate though that the Challenge winner has to be drawn on Easter!

      Personally, I’ve been thinking it’s interesting that Easter is on April Fool’s Day this year! Hmmmm….. 🐱 ~ Andrea

    Such a cute card, Darlene!!! I love how the greeting pairs with that little birdie so perfectly, plus the way he is perched on top of the balloon. Just hope his claws don’t burst the balloon! LOL Thanks for the tips about inking the balloons–they really do look dimensional with that ink. Take care! 😺 ~ Andrea

    I love everything about this card. The colours of the balloons are gorgeous and that bird sitting on the top just finishes the card off. This would make a good male card. Happy Easter to you and yours Darlene.

    What an adorable card! I love that serious little bird! I saw a sentiment to put on the inside:
    it says,”Obviously, it wasn’t an early bird!” – so good for a belated card!!

      Hannah, thank you for clearing that up. I kept saying to myself, “What the heck does that sentiment mean?” I guess I have too much on my mind, lol. Have a blessed Easter!!
