Gone away is the bluebird...

here to stay is a new bird...

Good morning friends! It may be the most wonderful time of the year but man-oh-man does it have to be the busiest time of year too? I'm still on the run so I have a quick post for a super quick card today.

But first, I just had to share the fun socks that sweet Kris sent me for Christmas, along with an amazing card and other fun goodies. She was concerned about my feet getting cold in my chilly craft room and that just cracked me up... thanks again Kris, I love them! :)

And as for my card... well, you are looking at a 20 minute card right here. The card base is a pre-printed one from Making Memories that even had the punched holes along the border already. All I did was some quick stamping right on it, colored in the bird and wove the ribbon up the border. I've used a gold Copic Spica pen on the bird and as always I just can't get the shimmer to show up well in the photo but in real life it really helps dress up this simple card.
Well thanks for stopping by... hopefully I'll have a more exciting card to share tomorrow. :)
Supply list:
Making Memories card base
stamps- Inkadinkado (bird and branches) Studio G (sentiment)
ink- Memento rich cocoa, Nick Bantock sapmoss green, Tim Holtz shabby shutters and antique linen
misc ribbon
Copic gold Spica pen
Copic markers:
bird- E40, E41, E42, R46, R59, E18, YG03, YG17, YG67

Hi Amy, I love the socks...You are sure have warm tootsies in those. You card is just fab! You would never ever know that park of it was premade....It is adorable. Have a great Wednesday. I was wondering if you would share how you store your Copics. I see them in the back ground, and it looks like you have them mounted on the wall...Lisa

If I could buy that oh-so-cute ornament, I would -- you've colored her so beautifully! What a great idea this pre-printed card is! Just this morning, I was looking at a regular card and wondered if I should just add a couple of Anya stamps and make it a day :)! Awesome ribbon too!

And those socks are adorable!
