tuesday morning sketches #7

happy thursday :) this is for melissa's cute sketch over at TMS this week.
i saw a stamp set from close to my heart that i fell in love with.. had it in my cart and thought..waaaaiiiittttt! 24 bucks for a set of stamps ..when you already have stamps you can create this idea i saved myself some money today wahhoo me! i used my cricut and jasmine (corners)and george (heart/wing) and graphically speaking ( fabulous) cartridge. the sweet lil bird.. first i used a flourish stamp for his tail, hand drew the legs, cut a triangle for its beak added a tiny basic grey pearl for its eye added a heart as a wing then glued the button onto the paper, how easy is that! i think he turned out pretty dang cute :) i used some colorbox fluid chalk on this and some buttons paper is basic grey/wisteria. thanks for looking
have a superb day :)shelly
