You Got a Friend




Happy April Fools Day Peeps!!! I am not big on April Fools jokes so I will not try and pull off some clever little prank to fool all you into believing something that is not true.....if I was a little bit more clever I could come up with something, but my 50 something brain is just toooooo tired!!! LOL!!!


Yesterday while I was blurfing around, visiting some of my blogging buddies I found this sketch. I printed it out and thought I would give it a try.

I used one of my fave sets from SU called "Cheep Talk" and of course used some of the "in colors". I can't seem to leave them alone, almost all my cards lately have at least one of them in it. This card is made with kiwi kiss and pacific blue and the DS paper is "Good Morning Sunshine".

I stamped the branch by inking up the leaf section with some kiwi ink and then using my chocolate chip marker to fill in the branch. I stamped it onto PTI white card stock. I then inked up my bird with pacific and used my pumpkin pie marker to ink the beak, I fist wiped off the pacific ink from the beak with a Q-tip. The sentiment is stamped with pacific ink as well, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up. I made the "nest" that my bird is sitting gin by knotting up some small strips of chocolate chip cardstock and then gluing it down with some mono glue. I pierced the edges of the main image panel with my piercing tool and mat pack.

I used some of the awesome kiwi satin ribbon to wrap around the card and to make the bow. I used a silver flower brad to hold the bow together and to attach it to the card. I punched a small photo corner and added silver brads to it.

The main image is up on dimensionals, and I made another 6-1/2 by 3-1/4 inch card. Love this size!!!

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
