For another man in my life!

     I have been scrappin' and making cards for a while now, but I am always challenged when it comes to making cards and pages for the men in my life.  I made this  5 x 7 inch card for my son-in-law for his birthday.  Since I am not a cardmaker who likes to stamp and color people, I am always looking for something with a natural feel to it!  I have loved this stamp of the chicadee from Heartfelt Creations for a long time and was delighted to add it to my growing collection from this wonderful company.  I have used it for winter and Christmas before, but leave off some snow, and it is perfect anytime here in the Carolina's with our abundance of pine trees.  I stamped the image and sentiment with Tuxedo Black Ink from Memento and colored it with Copic Markers.  I used punches to punch out the sentiment (Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3363 Inspire Me Sentiments Precu Set) and scalloped mat in a complementary color and distressed the edges.  The paper and frame were some papers in my collection - My Mind's Eye, Wild Asparagus.  The card base is "Cousins" Dots/Lime Paper.  The Frame is also MME Wild Asparagus "Dad" Frame - it has a nice sheen to it, too!  I hope you love this little guy as much as I do.  These chicadees are such "cheeky little fellows", aren't they?

That's all for now!  But can you believe it?  I might get 2 posts in the same week!  Hallelujah!  I'm back and my creative juices are flowing!

Baskets of Blessings, and thank you for stopping by to check out my blog!
