A Little Birdie...

Happy Saturday!

These stamps seem to be pretty popular this week on the Great Impressions Blog!
It's fun how none of us know what the other is working on, and so many
times, we are thinking alike!  As it's raining here this week, I thought
this little feller would cheer me up!

My card uses these Great Impressions stamps:

In this photo, you can see that I added Glossy Accents to the umbrella, boots, and raindrops.

So, you all know 'that moment' when the card is totally finished, and you think 'I just need to add one more little thing', and that one little thing goes wrong?  Yep!  I know you know what I mean! Look closely at Harry's really BIG eye!
I used some liquid enamel, and just as I got near the eye, it went BLURB
...all over the place!  Oh well, maybe he's excited about his new Birdie friend!

I think I will enter this in the Frosted Designs challenge, which is "Drip, Drip, Drip, April Showers"!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Don't forget - about the GI challenges!
A brand new challenge for April will start up on Sunday. 
If you use GI stamps be sure to link up to the customer gallery (HERE)

Be sure to stop by the Great Impressions store (HERE) and treat yourself to a few new stamps!

Did you know shipping is free over $25?! 

Have a great weekend,
Patti J.

This is such a cute card, Patti! I didn't even notice the eye "blurb." Love the glossy accents.

Taunya Butler said...

You did a super delightful job on this card - your hedgie is SO CUTE and I think is big eye looks fine - he's just bright-eyed and bushy tailed!! I do think all the glossy accents you added makes it have more dimension and character!! Just a super great card!! Sorry to hear it is raining where you are - hopefully the sun will come out tomorrow!!! Have a blessed Easter weekend!!! Hey, did my little birthday package get to you yet? Let me know!!! =]
