Christmas for the Birds

Happy Friday, peeps!  So happy to see the weekend arrive!  I have a Christmas card today for three challenges!  I loved the CAS Colours and Sketches sketch so much, I used it again, and the Merry Christmas Challenge was Anything Goes with the option of Banners, and Stamp Ink Paper's challenge was to Color It!

I got a sweet little Christmas set at the end of last year from Faith Illustrated and I thought these little birds would be fun and simple to color with my SU Blends:

I stamped them in Memento Black and used Light and Dark Pool Party, Light Bermuda Bay and Light Calypso Coral as my shades; some retired Crisp Cantaloupe DSP matched pretty well and is a fresh and fun color complement when paired with Pool Party:

My banner sentiment is from another set from Kaiser, fussy cut and mounted with dimensionals, and the inside sentiment is from SU's Better Together:

I have family staying for a few days, and my light box for my photos has been disassembled, so I am trying some "flat" photography; it's not too bad but not as nice as some that I have seen!  I need to do some practicing and find a spot with good lighting! Thanks for popping in today!

I made some peanut butter spritz cookies for my guests and I asked Cassidy to put them in a tin, knowing she likes to line things up neatly!!  I could tell by the look on her face she snuck one:


It was a perfect reward for a job well done!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Sweet card and delicious looking peanut butter. My daughter loved lining things up like that when she was little. She would line up all the Christmas ornaments.

Oh could I use one of those pbs cookies with my morning joe!
LeAnne, this is a precious little Christmas card! and the sentiment is just perfection!
Your photo looks great! I always shoot by my North facing window - the only glare I get bounces off the neighbors siding, so I do have to choose the right time of day... I do still miss my house in the woods!
Have a wonderful weekend!
