Warm & Feathery Feelings card




I love these little birds.  They are just so cute and I'm not really a "bird" person beyond filling a bird feeder.  I made their little tummies orange in hopes of an early Spring (yes, I'm already looking ahead to bypass winter).

You Color My World card





It hit me when I was coloring this sweet peacock that I had a stamp from when I first started making cards that would go perfectly with it.  I orginally was going to use the Happy Valentine's Day stamp that came with it but then thought if I left it off that the card could be used for an anniversary or any day to tell someone that they brighten your day.
