I fell in love with this stamp the first time I saw it.  I love watching the little Chickadees.

A closer look.

Inked with markers then colored with ink, markers and a blender pen.  The sentiment is from a retired set.  I left off the tails when I inked it with a marker.

Awwww, your chickadee is just beautiful! I love those red berries and how they pop off the card. Joy is the perfect sentiment for that scene!!

Just gorgeous! What a great image with the holly and berries and a gorgeous bird to boot. Beautifully done! Have a Merry Christmas, Bonnie!

That *is* a great image, and you've colored it beautifully. I can picture this as gift wrap, with that image all over. However, all the coloring would make it impossible! You wouldn't want the recipient to tear it open!
