Happy Easter!!!!

I hope you all are having a nice Easter weekend....and if you are lucky enough to also have Monday off...I'm 'J'...(just learned that one from my nephew yesterday). We had our family get together yesterday and I was less enthusiastic than usual mainly due to seriously hurting calfs and thighs due to painting the bathroom on Friday. Thankfully, my mom and brother brought all the food and all I had to do was make salad (which my Mom did for me when she got here!). After they left I took an Aleve and got my thermophore heating pad on those legs and thankfully I'm much more mobile today!


Todays card features Chirpie Ketto. I love funky bird images and this one is no exception. I used Chirpie and his mini on here and it reminds me of a mamma bird poking her little one to get moving! Hehehe! I know I've been there done that when my boys were little. I colored these guys with my copics, used pencils for the grass and sky, cut with nesties and finished it off with some glitter and a little glossy accents on their eyes. See that big giant button on the boy, well it's not a button, it is one of Stamping Bella's magnets. If you have been thinking about getting some, just do it...they are REALLY nice!

Now for some business. Have you seen the challenge on Bloggabella yet! OMG! GORJUS! The challenge is to use any combo of the colors but you MUST use a flower on the card. Easy Peasy! I simply couldn't pick just a few colors so I challenged myself to use as many of them as I could. I think I may have pulled it off. Go get colorin' and email your card to Emily by 5pm Thursday April 16th for a chance to win some Bella Bucks!

Finally...if you live in Southwestern Ontario within driving distance to Kitchener you really should consider attending Scrapfest. Paper Pickle will have a booth and almost all of the Stamping Bella cards that I have posted on my blog will be on display. I've never attended this event before, but I hear it is worth the drive so I'll be there. If you are going, let me know...and if you recognize me...say hi 'cause I'd love to meet you.

Darling image and of course beautifully colored. I have not seen these little birds...too cute!
I felt the same way after painting my bathroom...that "bending and squatting" really uses muscles we don't even realize we have, lol! The second day is usually the worse!
