I have more birds in my stash that any one person should ever need - but I keep getting newer, cuter, prettier, quirker birds - just about any excuse will do. I love the new Sweetie Bird by Spellbinders - so many fun layers! There's also a Little Chickadee which I haven't found in stock anywhere yet, and a Tweet Cardinal which will show up on one of my cards soon.
The same is true of flowers. I really liked the Be Bold set from Spellbinders but I didn't get it on the first day and then it was out of stock forever. Long enough that I realized that the last thing I needed was another set of flowers - even though this set is huge and gorgeous - so I took it off my wishlist. Then I was wandering Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago and the dies were on sale and look what they had! This set clearly needed a home in my craft room.
Given I had the Sweet Birdie on my desk, the circle on the sketch was very obviously a little hole for his house. I pulled out all of my favorite fresh colors and decided to do him in the warmer colors and a little bouquet at his entrance in cooler colors. The sentiment is a pre-done strip from Simon Says and felt exactly right for him!
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
