A Chubby Bird Sketch

Just a quick little notecard to share with y'all today. I used Taylor's Cupcake Challenge 44. Such a cute layout and perfect for smaller images!!! I inked up my Chubby Bird stamp for the first time. I love this image! He is colored in with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I, of course, cut out and raised his little hat with a dimensional. I also went over the green parts of the hat with Stardust Stickles. The circles are cut out and embossed with Nestabilities. Oh and I inked up another new stamp - the 3 trees. I was trying to find some pattern paper to go with my image and I kept eying that tree stamp and thought hmmmm wonder if it will work with a square punch. Sure did and it matched the Chubby Bird (I just like saying that) image perfectly. I really like this color combo too. It's great for Christmas cards!! I'm glad this little bird looks warm because I'm freezing. Believe it or not it actually snowed in Texas. It was sleeting last night when we went to bed and then I had to take my hubby to the airport at 5:30 this morning. Fun times, let me tell ya - I'm not a great morning person and it was raining and icy. Anyhow, I didn't realize that it had snowed until about 8 this morning. I took Nala out and froze when I saw the roofs had a light dusting and the fences were outlined. Yeah, it's not a lot, but we are easy to please when it comes to snow. It was a nice little surprise. I'm about to put on a few layers of clothes and head out to meet a friend for lunch. Hope y'all are cozy in your neck of the woods today!
