A Little Birdie Told Me

I hope you are having a great day! Fall is in the air, and this is my favorite time to spend outdoors. Going for a walk is easy breezy on a cool Autumn day! This is a great time to watch the birds too because lots of migratory birds are starting to gather for travel to warmer climates.   This little guy is from a new set by Memory Box called Autumn Birdie!  Isn't he adorable?  

I've added lots of colorful Twinery Twine to my project in complimentary Autumn Colors. I took a long strand - about a foot long, and folded it in half. Then I wrapped the length around the card feeding the loose ends into the loop I created with the double strand. You would do this the same way you thread a piece of twine through a hole in a tag, feeding the loose ends through the loop you created. When I had all my colors attached I trimmed the edges to make them nice and even.

I colored all the images with Copic Markers and did all my stamping with Memento Inks. The Twinery twine really brings everything together and adds lots of color and texture... and maybe a little bit of fun too!!

I hope you have a beautiful day!

If I were inclined to take a 'selfie' (which I'm not...), you'd see me sitting here, beaming in sheer joy at seeing this cheerful, sweet, wonderfully designed card! The bluebird is a joy; the colourful twine a charming special touch!
