"Try It Different" Tuesday: Songbirds
The weather this time of year can be a bit unpredictable. For example, yesterday's high in Minneapolis was 63 degrees, and I'm told that later today it may hit 81 degrees. Isn't that crazy? But I'm definitely not complaining, no sirree!
At least spring has finally arrived, and I feel pretty confident that we won't be getting any more snow for the next several months (unless I've just jinxed us, ha!). I've really enjoyed seeing the birds and other critters making their appearance, which inspires me to share this cheerful card with you:
Michelle Pearson created it using 11217MC Songbirds HoneyPOP Clear Set (drawn by artist Tammy DeYoung):
She also made this fun version, which utilizes other stamps in the same set for completely different results:
And while this card works beautifully as a standard greeting, of course you can add the HoneyPOP "surprise" inside, if you wish:
For our display boards at the Winter CHA show earlier this year, Michelle had done a third variation. Unfortunately, I forgot to snap a close-up photo before putting it into our Inky show booth...so if you really want to see it, hopefully you can visit us at an upcoming convention.
Here's a hint on what you'll be looking for:
Were you able to spot it? You can click on the picture for a larger view. Leave a comment to let me know which one it is, and you'll be entered in our BLOG CANDY drawing for this stamp set.
On Sunday, May 25th, I'll randomly choose the winner and post the lucky person's name here on the blog, so please check back to see if you've won!
