A little birdie told me.....

Hello Lovelies,

Almost the weekend, hope you've had a great week and found time to fit in some stamping.

I made this for a little boy going into to hospital and was under strict instructions to make it bright and cheery without looking girly. Well the bright & cheery was easy but I always struggle wanting to add flowers, bows and sparkle, it always seems to be missing something without them. The little frog hops from card to card.  How cute is that little bird. I chose Edwin with cap as he looks just like our ginger haired little Jake.

Magnolia Stamps: Edwin with Cap, Shabby Chic Fence from Shabby Chic Summer 2008 Collection
Sun from Lazy Summer Day's Collection, Tilda's birds from Magnolia Spring Summer 2008
Copic Markers: Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20, Shirt -YG00, 01, 03, 05, Jeans - B21, B24, Hair - YR23, Y23, E35, Background Airbrushed B41
Martha Stewart Punches - Grass border & Butterfly
All other supplies from stash

Kellie at Tickled Pink Stamps has a huge range of stamps, not just Magnolia Stamps, lots of other crafting goodies and with Mothers Day just around the corner.
I am so excited, almost bursting at the seams, we have lots happening at Tickled Pink Stamps in May, don't miss out, stop by the new blog to check out all the fun.

here is a little sneak peak

Have a great weekend.
