Merry Monday Little Chickadee

It's week 3 of the month and the Merry Monday challenge this week is a theme challenge.


Isn't this great fun to have a different challenge each week?


Another stamped image from my UFO (UnFinished Objects) box.  I colored it with SU Markers and die cut it with the largest oval from the Bigz Oval die, now retired.  I had this piece of embossing done too and it was a perfect fit.

I can go play at Pixie's Snippets with this.  The image I guess can be called a snippet. Even if not, that chickadee will love a trip to the Playground. The red banner was definitely a snippet.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Beautiful Season
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, SU Markers ( Basic Black, Basic Gray, Peach Pizzazz, Garden Green, Handsome Hunter, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler)
Paper:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red
Other:  Holiday Frame EF (retired), Ovals Bigz Die (retired)

I hope you'll create a Christmas card with a bird theme and hop on over to Merry Monday to share it with us.  Even so, check out the other designers cards and the gallery.

VERY pretty, Bonnie. Love your coloring on the chickadee and the red strip makes the entire card just "pop".

Absolutely fabulous Bonnie - I love the pop of colours on the crisp white and such a sweet image!

Have linked you in - sometimes Mr Linky is updated by the folk who run and maintain it so it disappears for a short time. It's working fine now but your lovely card is now added anyhow.

Hugs, Di xx
