VA State Bird




This is a new image I bought at the stamp show in York at the ODBD booth. Kelley was demoing their new snowflake stamp set with matching die (stay tuned for a future card using these new goodies!), so I couldn't resist buying that or this great cardinal - especially since it's the state bird of VA. I colored him with Copics and since I used a holly leaf border punch, it qualifies for the Shining Light Challenge to use leaves on a card. The layout is for the Our Creative Corner Challenge which is a sketch this week. I hate to see this weekend come to an end...fun times with friends...relaxing time with family...stamping time with new goodies...Does Monday really need to come around so soon?!
STAMPS: Sing for Joy (ODBD), O Christmas Tree (Verve) - sentiment
PAPER: Always Artichoke, Mistletoe DP by Memory Box
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Holly border punch (MS), Copics, Seam binding ribbon (SU), Kaiser silver pearls, Circle punch, Sponge

Wow, you broke into your new goodies but quick LOL! Gorgeous cardinal and wonderfully coloured. Love the holly punch down the side.

Thanks for the congrats on the win. It was a fabulous way to celebrate Thanksgiving. And yes, the PO Box should have the goodies here in three days or so and it is just a 15 minute drive (based on a very short border line up) to get them :) Looking forward to seeing the Christmas stamps on the 29th :)
