Cards with bird images using Spellbinders Dies

Hello!  I hope all of you enjoyed your Thanksgiving.  We had a wonderful day which wrapped up about 11:00pm with me as the Queen of Canasta!  Yep ...  I took the boys down.  teehee.  And over the weekend I spent saturday with my friend Deb.  She loves mixed media as well, so we worked on our She Art.  I'm going to get brave enough to share my canvas's one day.  Not familiar with She Art ??  It's simple art with a girl on it and some words that are meaningful to you.  I took She Art #1 from Christy Tomlison back in the spring.  If you are interested in mixed media, I recommend the class and you can check it out HERE.  I ended up starting a Christmas themed canvas.  Almost done, just need to add a few more details.  I also picked up some wooden birdhouses at Micheals, hoping to have time to alter them in a Christmas theme. 

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I created using stamp sets by Mark's Finest Papers.  The one above uses an image from a set called Little Birds with Big Mouths.  MFP is going through some changes right now, under new ownership, and honestly, I'm not sure which of the old sets they will be adding back on, or which ones are discontinued.  But, I had already designed my Nov cards back in Oct, so I'm going to share anyway.

This set was in the store last week, but not there now.  It's called Chicken Scratch.  I designed this one using a clean and simple Take Ten sketch for a submission.  I'm also using today for the sketch challenge over at StampTV.  You can check out this weeks Freinds of SpeedyTV challenge HERE.  I hope you will join us!

Have a great week!

Hello Queen Melisa! Glad to hear that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving. We did, too. It was really hard taking DS to the airport today, but we had to (very sad face here). Love your cards, especially the first one! Thanks for sharing, and have a good week, dear friend :)
