Stamp Ink Paper 80 - Get Well Bird

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  I am thrilled that I've been asked to be on the Stamp Ink Paper DT on a permanent basis!  Today's challenge is cardmaker's choice!  
Image may contain: text

Honestly, this was more difficult than I imagined, because I have SO MANY favorites!!  My favorite on  any given day might change with the season, my mood or the holiday!  Anyway, I decided in the end on this sweet bird from Red Lead, along with some other images I randomly stamped on some pretty Pool Party-hued paper from Fancy Pants:

It wasn't hard to choose my favorite color, and I love birds, and I love collage stamping, and I love shabby ribbon, so the rest was easy!  There are feathers, eggs, lace and postmarks, all stamped in various shades.....the eggs (Nature Walk) were colored with some ink and a blender pen, cut out and popped up:

I added a tag, also lightly stamped with a honeycomb design:

and the inside sentiment was stamped over the egg image as well!  I never have enough get well cards, so this is beginning my stash!  I'll have the supply list at the bottom!

Just thought I would share a photo from the weekend get-together with John's family!  Here are some amazing women that I am blessed to have in my family:

Me, John's sister Mimi, John's sister-in-law Colleen, and John's stepmother, Trish!  Mimi is a great hostess and we had a wonderful brunch together.  And here are a few of the guys...they seem to be deep in discussion, probably solving the world's problems:

John's BIL Charlie, his stepfather Bob, John, and Dana's boyfriend Wayne!  I think the girls were having more fun than the guys, though, LOL!

Enjoy your day and thanks for popping in!

Happy New Year dear friend 😊 It's been so long since I've sat to take time to peek about! So so glad I did this morning...stunning this card and your shabby ribbon 🎀. How do you do that? I know many have asked, but not sure where to begin to find that 😊 Have a blessed day and all the best to you and yours in this coming year 🎉

I think your feathered friend was a wonderful choice! And anything close to pool party is a favorite card making color of mine. Just look at the beautiful smiles on you gals, of course you're having more fun!!

Wow ~ can't say enough about this card as I LOVE every single stamp and detail! But, I also love what I can see of this home - lights and greens on the bannister and in the window plants, the porch details through the lace panels. How lovely! Happy New Year!
