Hello There!



If you know me, then it comes as no surprise that Cheep Talk was one of the first sets I purchased from the new SU catalogue...it's got birds! I'm all about birds. LOL! I decided to get it inky for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #57

It was about 9:30 last night when I sat down to stamp this and I wanted an image I didn't have to colour. The leaves and wing are cut out and popped for a little dimension. At first I tied the ribbon into a bow but it was overwhelming the panel, so then I switched it to this tailored half-bow thingy. The end of the ribbon reminds me of the beak on the other bird...his mouth is open and he's chirping away. Oh, and one more thing I noticed while I was cutting out the leaves...if you look at the two leaves closest to the bird, they look like a moustache. So if you want to add a moustache to anything you can use these leaves. Sigh...Sometimes even I wonder about my imagination! LOL!

Aside from a little sewing with my Janome and the nesties, this is an all SU card. The new buttons and brads are just wonderful...thanks SU!

Thanks for stopping by!
