Sage old bird

This is a Challenge from the Michigan Minglers. If you're a stamper in MI, you should check it out. We'd love to have you. Oh shoot, I didn't put that in a cool hyperlink. Oh well, please forgive me.

So here is this bird. I have a thing for birds. I also have a few bird neurosis, but that is a subject for another day. The challenge was in honor of Chocolate Mint day, which I believe is Feb 19. Yummy day, huh? Anyway, we were supposed to use Choc chip, Sage Shadow, Vanilla, and Close to Cocoa. Mine got very shabby. I was in a bit of a hurry and got a few little smudges here and there and had to camoflauge, but I love how it turned out.

Stamps : Always, Always in Bloom wheel

Ink : Choc Chip, Close to Cocoa - both craft ink

Paper : Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, Sage Shadow, Choc Chip

Accessories : half back pearl from pretties kit, scallop edge punch, Choc chip 1" double stitched ribbon, sponges, clear EP

    Oh, I like this a LOT! I can't believe I don't have that wheel. You are making me want it, for sure! Have to tell my Dad that chocolate mint day is on his b-day!
