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 - English Robins

Good Morning to you all on this beautiful, sunshiny, Bitter Cold, Sunday Morning. We've been fortunate not to have much snow yet this winter BUT, the past two months have been bitterly cold.

I want to start thinking Spring with my card making, but I can’t seem to draw myself away from these Gorgeous Winter Bird Series from Fred She Said. The birds come as Digi’s and Pre-colored images, which is what I chose to use today. My feelings on the pre-colored images is, why re-do something that’s already perfect. The other day I used the Chickadee and today I’m using the English Robins. The only one left is the Cardinal. I may have to do that one tomorrow. If you haven’t picked up on these images yet, you don’t know what you’re missing!

I got the inspiration for this card from the Critter Sketch Challenge. I love to start my creations with a sketch challenge.

I used the Olivia Paper Pack from Close to my Heart and matching Embroidery Floss for the Hand Stitching.

Nancy,
I discovered your blog and became a follower a few weeks ago. I am absolutely in love with your style! I love the stitching on all of your cards! I especially love the FSS bird cards that you've made. I just went and bought all three birds. I made my first card with the robins today. Thank you, I am truly inspired by YOU!
