Chocolate Bunny Birdbrain

Good morning! I have a card to share using one of Faith's adorable Birdbrains. I just love the sayings in this set...this particular one speaks to me!

I've used this week's sketch, #167. There's still time to play along; you can get the details here, along with plenty of inspiration from the DT. I've colored the birdbrain with pencils and added a touch of glitter to her eyelids. I went CAS and added some jelly bean paper as an accent.

FTHS March Blog Hop

Good morning!  It's time for the From the Heart Stamps March Blog Hop...our theme this month is "Spring".  Are you ready for it? I know I am! (Both the hop and!)

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry. One random commenter will be selected on each blog (and the FTHS Blog!) to win their image of choice from the FTHS Store!

If you have arrived from From the Heart Stamps, you are in the right place; if not, why don't you start there so you won't miss anything?

Today I have used Prickles Says Hello and paired him with some springy colors and floral paper. He is colored with pencils and I've embellished simply with a button/banner combo.

*I do want to mention that this is a previously posted card.  I had surgery last week and am now home and recovering. Since I really wanted to participate in the hop, I had to visit my archives. The "Spring" theme really speaks to me right now...a new beginning and a new lease on life...God is good!

Birdbrain Balloon

Good morning!  I've got a CAS Birthday card to share using one of my favorite Birdbrains.  Don't you just love his expression?  Kind of how I feel when my birthday rolls around!  LOL

The image is colored with pencils and I've added Glossy Accents to the balloon. Dies are from Lawn Fawn, I love how they add that "extra" touch to the edge. I finished it off with some enamel dots.  Here's a close-up:
