Bird Family Valentine...CAS Colours & Sketches #159~Colours, Just Us Girls #329~Word Week: Valentine, Allsorts Challenge #349~CAS

Hello, hello...

I'm zooming in at warp speed to share my card for CAS Colours and Sketches #159~Colours


I had my brother's family in mind when I made this...although I'm  not sure my nephew would be 'tickled pink' to be stamped in pink. Then again, he's only three and eleven months old (gahhhh....four is approaching way too fast for Aunty C!). 


I've sent this off to my sister-in-law who can, in turn, send it to someone special in their lives; a kinda-sorta "family" Valentine. Oh yes: they've all been heavily Wink of Stella-ed...a shiny-feathered gathering...

NOTE: Thrilled and Honoured to be selected as one of the TOP 5 at Allsorts Challenge #349. THANK YOU!

NOTE: Thrilled and Honoured to be selected as one of the Top 4 Weekly Winners at CAS Colours and Sketches.  THANK YOU!

Thank  you for spending part of your day with me; your visit brings me joy!

  5. Oh gosh, this is so cute! Great use of the colors. Those birds sure do make me smile. I like the detail in the border around the card panel. Adds great visual interest (as if the colorful birds aren't enough all on their own). Terrific card, Ms. C and I don't think your little (almost big) nephew will mind a bit! Hugs!

  11. What a fun little flock of birds! I like how the smallest one's wing somewhat resembles a heart - perfect for the Valentine theme! :) Thanks for sharing your darling card with us at CAS Colours & Sketches! I hope you'll join us again soon for another challenge.
