Bluebird, bluebird at my window...

Good morning!

Are you enjoying a nice and relaxing weekend? I get to chill and relax today... maybe even get my craftin' on. Though after that last rush of creating for the previews my crafty room is once again a bit of a disaster. You see... as I'm working on projects I have a tendency to pull stamps and papers and not put them back immediately after. Things tend to pile until a crafty avalanche threatens to tear through my space. Soooo... most likely I'll be cleaning a bit first to make the space workable again. ;)

Anywho... have you seen the new Wryn digi stamps that Christy just released over at Tiddly Inks? OMWord are they adorable! I will admit that it was love at first sight and a couple of them quickly found a home on my hard drive. :)
Wryn New Nest ended up being the first of the bunch that I colored for a card and she was so much fun to watch come to life! Plus I finally had the perfect image to pair up with these quirky Picadilly papers that I've had for a few months now. Oooh and I went a bit crazy with the dies on this one too, but don't the CC Designs Leafy Branch cut-outs kinda look like they finish off the top of the tree in the stamp? Then I couldn't resist cutting out a Mama and Papa bluebird to go with the chickie in the nest... awwww, how tweet! LOL
Can you tell that I enjoyed putting this together?

Okey dokey, time for me to make like a banana and split. Have a good one!

I have that branch die on my wish list - love you you used it here to complete the digital tree. And that image is adorable - love the beautiful spring colors on this.

Tress said...

I agree! The new Wryn designs are fabulous! And your card certainly brings this little one to life. The addition of the cutouts (birds and branches) is the perfect touch.

Lol, I know just what you mean;) I have a hard time getting started on the next project when I have a mess. I walk away for a few, then come back and clean up. I drive myself crazy sometimes, hehehe.

gobeagirl said...

Amy she is just adorable and I do think that looks like the top of the tree where Mama bird is keeping her eyes out. I love your coloring on this and I can see why you had to use this stamp. It really is adorable as is your card. I hope you have a great day. Hugs, Lisa

Damaris said...

Amy, just once I'd love to see your pile of mess before you clean it up... that way I won't feel like the only messy crafter in the world!! LOL. Why do we do that to ourselves??? I guess it's because we get excited about a new project and new ideas and want to quickly get it down before the mojo leaves us... or laziness... ahaha.


Anyway, great card and lovely colors (as always).

x0, Damaris
