Being Patriotic!

Good Friday afternoon to you! I hope that you all had a wonderful week. It's been raining here for a couple of days (hence, the dark photograph), but all is GOOD!

This week's Blogger's Challenge is a Patriotic theme. I do not have too many stamps for that category, but I still wanted to play, so I headed over to Designed 2 Delight and found just what I was looking for. Faith has some adorable digital images and I really loved this wonderful birdhouse that she created. (Faith, I apologize for cutting off your copyright mark. I didn't realize it until it was too late. Please forgive me.) I colored it up with Copic Markers (B0000, B21, B23, B26, C1, E25, E29, E31, E33, R27, R29, Y21, Y32, YG67, YR18, and the Colorless Blender), and actually mounted it to an old card from my stash that I created about two years ago. I hadn't used the card and decided to recycle the image and make it into something that I thought would be a bit more useful. If I remember correctly, this was one of Mary Jo's Lunchtime Sketches. The papers are retired ones from Stampin' Up with some Bashful Blue and Real Red. The button is from Doodlebug Designs and the ribbons are from May Arts. I also used my Nesties for the circles.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please click on the Blogger's Challenge logo in my right side bar to see what the other Ladies have come up with. Toodles! :D

You picked a great image, it is so cute! Love those papers too, I've been hoarding them for a long time.

This is so cute!! Thank you so much for sending me the link. It doesn't bother me that the copyright is cut off. :) I add it to my images so that it's with the digital file. If it were a wood-mounted rubber stamp, I would stick it to the block instead of the image itself.
