My Little Chickadee

Have I ever mentioned how much I love birds? I really do. I love their beauty. I love their song. I sometimes go to sleep at night listening to bird song on my CD player (yes, I have several CD's of nature sounds that I love to listen to as I fall asleep... right now it's ocean waves). This month at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps we are celebrating animals. Naturally, I thought of birds since they are one of my favorite animals.

This is one of my favorite SNSS stamp sets, My Little Chickadee. Unfortunately, it's currently not in stock, but more are expected later this month. This stamp set, like ALL of the SNSS stamp sets, is discounted by 25%. Yep, Korin is helping you get new rubber in your hands during these tough economic times by lowering her prices storewide by 25% and offering regular first class mail as an option to save you money! That's amazingly generous, and amazingly wonderful. But that's the way Korin is, which is why I love working with her!

Gee, I got so excited about the idea of a stamp sale that I nearly forgot to mention that my card is a flipped over version of this week's sketch at The Sweet Stop! I don't often make long cards, but always enjoy it when I do for a little change of pace.

I also decided to try the Color Throwdown #54 challenge, which was to use Basic Grey, Blush Blossom, Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust. I'm not very good at color challenges, so I'm going to try to conquer my fears and try them more often. The girls made this a bit easier for me by mentioning it was based on Basic Grey's Ambrosia paper. That, I could relate to! {LOL} In fact, I used a piece of it in my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today! I have another big annoucement to make in the next day or so, so stay tuned for that. There's already a hint on my blog. (*grin*) If you figure it out, leave me a comment with your guess!

Oh, and I'm planning a HUGE blog candy for all my followers soon, so if you haven't done so already, please "follow" me for a chance to win!!!

WOW, Lisa! LOVE the colors and I'm a bird lover also. We have LOTS of Chickadee's at the feeders. I have windows that need washing from those buggers.... Don't know how they manage to get poop on the windows. It's small spots, but funny!

The triple scallop border punch is a fun idea to try... can't WAIT to here what your announcement is!! So exciting! SMILES and nighty night! Michelle :)

Beautiful card, Lisa! Thanks for sharing your love of birds, too. I, too, listen to nature CDs especially when I have trouble sleeping. My favorite is whale songs.
