Cute Birdie!

Evening everyone.
Hope everybody's had a lovely weekend and I bet most of you are looking forward to the next one already!
I know I am as 'He who works' hasn't been home for 2 weeks now but told me they will all be back for Valentines weekend - fix the fence and chippy tea for us then!!!!
Talking about the fence (I might as well!) there has been no point in fixing it for several weeks as the wind has blown it down so often that as soon as it's back in place it's blown down again!
Also, going in the garden means I have to look at it and I hate when it looks bedraggled and untidy as it always does in the winter (and sometimes in the summer too!).
Really need to organise a gardener this year. I can't do the work myself anymore and we all hate doing it anyway!

Anyhow, the reason for the title of the post - this little card.

I made this using an image from www.pinkpetticoat.co.uk which are really sweet and all £1 at the moment!
I used Spectrum Noir BT1 , BT2 and GB6 to colour him in!
The mint chevron paper is from Pinkpetticoat too.
I didn't have any minty coloured pearl gems so I coloured 3 of them with my Spectrum Noir marker (BT2) and it worked just fine!
After punching a border across the bottom, I found some narrow minty ribbon in my ribbon box and threaded it through - lovely!

I am entering the little chap into these challenges  -

Sentiment as main focus at Totally Gorjuss
Clean and Simple at The Stamping Boutique
Anything goes at Addicted To Stamps
