Seize The Birthday - Birdie Wishes


Oh, look what flew to my house yesterday! I was so excited to receive my WPlus9 order that I dropped everything to make a card right away! I chose to use the sketch from Seize The Birthday: (ETA- oops, missed the deadline!)



These birds are so cute and unique in their style that it was very easy to justify this purchase despite my determination to use more of what I already have. Let's not talk about the sentiment set that also jumped into my cart....

This bird seemed to be jumping for joy and I finally figured out that he is the french-fry bird (related to one of the sentiments in the set) and that's what is in his mouth.

I coloured him as a robin with copics (#thedailymarker 30day) and stickles and softly sponged the circle with Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn.

I used:
-WPlus9 Happy Birds and matching dies
-WPlus9 That is All for the sentiment and hearts (oops, I said I wasn't going to talk about it!)

You make me laugh. I, too, have sworn off new purchases for 3 months! And yet I found myself at W+9 and these birdies were calling loud enough that they had to be bought! Just waiting for them to arrive. Love the card!

Brilliant use of a (complicated to me) sketch!

Gabby said...

Cutie bird card! I agree with Hannelie--brilliant use of the sketch! I didn't know that was a French fry in the bird's mouth. I thought he was wearing a little hat. Hee! :)

Oh, you bought those awesome birds!!! And made an awesome card with them!!! I almost bought them , too, but I made myself stick to my commitment of NOT buying new stuff in 2016 :(

This bird is adorable! No wonder you had to have this set. (My current must-have is the Crazy Cat set, but that would be me.) Fabulous colouring.

Fun, sweet and oh so adorable! Love the little birds (although I didn't get the "french fry" thing for awhile - oops).

Already loved this sweet happy bird, Ardyth ... now it's flown to your house to play, I love it even more .. so cute, so fun, so you! I'm certain there's going to be a flock flying off my wish list, across the ocean and into a nest here too! Hugs & bisous, Anita :)
