Welcome, Tweet One!



Hi, Friends.......

I am still waiting to hear from the following winners of prizes from my Cat Lovers Hop last week:  Elizabeth, Katie O, 2am Scrapper, and Leigh S-B.  I really don't want to have to go tracking you ladies down, so please email me ASAP at jwoolbright at gmail dot com.  THANKS!!!
 
So in the middle of finishing things up with the Cat Lovers Hop, I made a card for our pastor's wife who has a baby boy due in a few short weeks.  Yay!  I made a set of flannel receiving blankets for the baby, too.  Fun!
I was lucky enough to be one of the winners in Winnie & Walter's WCMD challenges and, for part of my prize, I ordered their adorable LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs stamp set for making a card especially for this baby!  (THANKS, W&W!!!)

My watercolor background is one of my "Leftover Easter Egg Dye Background Series".  :)  I stamped the images using my mini-MISTI with Onyx Black Versafine ink and colored them with Distress Inks smooshed on an acrylic block and my waterbrush.  I die cut the panels with my new Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set....(also part of my WCMD prize!...THANKS, W&W!!)

This was a fun card to make for a "country baby".....I loved putting the cowboy hat on the sweet little birdie!!  Hope you enjoyed it!!!

Oh Janis, this is even cuter that I imagined! That little bird with the cowboy hat is so fun and sweet, struttin' his stuff! The subtle watercolor wash background (or should I say easter egg wash) is the perfect way to add color while letting that birdie take center stage. I know the parents are loving that card and gift.
