A Little Birdie....



     Hi there....I am sure by now everyone is in a Christmas frenzy...baking, decorating, wrapping, and wassailing away! I thought I would pop in with a little card made for Magistical Memories http://www.magisticalmemories.com/  using part of an Amy Teets design (the other part of the chipboard is used on another project.) called leaf.  I painted it white linen and glittered it with clearsnaps glitter.  I than wanted it to look a bit antiqued so I added a bit of glimmer mist to give it almost a tea-stained look in places.  I took off the top leaves of the branch to make it look more like a limb.  Than I went to work adding my little birdy and embellishing him with a crown....and adding a few shabby touches here and there.  I also used my coveted Helmar adhesive...which sadly is almost gone...I NEED more!  Santa do you hear me????  Well hope you enjoy...I think my birdy likes his new home on the limb.  What do you think?    Merry Christmas all!  Cherry
