The Birthday Buzzard!

Yesterday, I was apologizing because I hadn't posted in two weeks and now here's my second post in two days...lol! I just couldn't wait to play today...my new stamps arrived from High Hopes! I quickly got the weekly housework done and then began inking! I love this Birthday Buzzard! Don't ask me how a buzzard can be so cute, but this one certainly is! I was hoping that he'd fit in the circle from the sketch that Taylor had over on her blog, and he almost did! I just had to cut around the balloons like Michelle from the High Hopes Design Team did with one of her creations. (Thanks for idea Michelle!) I thought this image would work well with this week's Color Inspiration from Kristina Werner (Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, and Whisper White). All of the papers are from Stampin' Up and these Making Memories brads matched perfectly so I just had to add those. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Who knows...maybe I'll stamp some more and post tomorrow too! {wink} Thanks so much for visiting today...Toodles! :D
