My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

FSS Chickadee



Oh My, It's almost the middle of January already and I'm only now starting to get my Mojo Back after the Holiday break. Better late then never.

My card today was inspired by a sketch from Inspirational Card (IC) Sketches. And of course with the fabulous Chickadee from the Fred She Said Winter Bird Series. This happens to be one of the pre-colored images. 

The other inspiration for this card was from Our Creative Corner who had an inspirational picture of a Chickadee.

The papers are from the Magnifique Paper pack from Close to my Heart. The blue sparkles are from the Blue & Green assortment from Close to my Heart.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.

Other Challenge Blogs this card was made for:
Aly's Sunday Challenge - Wings
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Wings
The Crazy Challenge - An Animal.  Is a bird an animal??? They have a duck as a DT card so I guess my bird qualifies.
