Good morning my little Chickadee...

I see these adorable little birds out my window most every day. But even more so in the winter, when it's cold and they're looking for the seed we leave out. This is drawn by a fantastic artist, Deborah Boyet. You can see more of her artwork here. I'm on the her design team, which is not totally up and running yet, however her store is open. On this little guy I used mainly purple, yellow and green. It made me think of spring. The small flowers and gems are by recollections. I made the large one out of tissue paper, which I am totally in love with now. The punches are MS, and the green corners are by Sizzix. The sentiment is one that I picked out from Rainbow Echo Designs, which can be purchased at Whimsy Stamps.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Ooh La La Creations - three of a kind

Woodware USA Clear Stamps - anything

Digital Tuesday Challenge - sketch & digi

Top Tip Tuesday - flowers

I hope that you enjoyed looking at my bird, and that you will leave me a comment.

Very cute Debbie! You do good with birds! I find them hard to do, but you captured the colors nicely! I like the purple and yellow together. You paper flowers are very pretty!
