Welcome to Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #151~Anything Goes, which means quite literally ANYTHING goes. Cards, projects, tags, canvases...you name it, we want it!
Please be sure to visit my incredibly creative DT's cards, especially since we have some new designers joining us! Yayyyyy...You'll love their Anything Goes inspiration! Then, design something for the gallery and come to play. This week's winner will be the lucky recipient of a $10 gift certificate from marvelous Shery over at
Making their debut today are...the chickadees! Two cards - one each for my niece and nephew - to 'celebrate' their Happy *Months* Old cards that I try to send out...well, monthly. Ms. T is 64 months old (just over 5); Mr. C is 40 months old (just over 3). I kept the cards similar, because heaven knows that what one has, the other wants so...consider the similarities a peace-keeping mission. Actually, the 'true story'...those chickadees are so darn cute, I just wanted to make more than one card *grin* My first attempts (for a grand total of about five tries...happy recycle bin), I tried water-colouring them...yeah..no. Mess. Then - part two of my true story - I noticed the circles logo on the W&W cutaways Bobby sent...PING! I have a home-made circle stencil, found that baby and away I went...
Simple, but I think they're rather cutie-patootie.
My first card is for Ms. T...the green bird is Uncle A, pink is Ms. T and blue is yours truly...
My second card is for Mr. C...Uncle A has transformed to orange, I'm sporting purple and Mr. C is our little blue bird.
Hope our 'little chickadees' will like their cards...they're in envelopes, ready for mailing
