Happy Squwak Day


Yikes!  It's Wednesday and instead of a camel to announce Hump Day, thought this bird could take his place.  We all probably feel a little like this on Wednesday - just trying to make it to the weekend!  Maybe instead of calling it Hump Day we should re-name it to Squwak Day!  Yes!

This adorable image is from The Alley Way Stamps and I love him to bits and pieces!  There's more cuties in the stamp set so if you get a chance, check it out.  He - no, I take that back.....it's a "she" with the pink added to her feathers.....Anyway.....She was colored with Copics with a little Wink of Stella added to those top feathers.  This is mounted on a piece of patterned paper from SU.  Clean and simple and yet gets the message across.

I'm entering this in the Be Inspired Challenge from TAWS.  Love the inspiration picture this week too.





Thanks for stopping by......and Happy Squwak Day!
Lynn

THis bird is hilarious looking and I love how you colored it, The facial expression is priceless, but I have to ask......what does squwak mean? I've heard of squawk, but squwak is a new one on me!

Oh YESSS! Squawk day is perfect. This cutie looks like I do when I straggle out of bed of a morning (except I don't look this cute..my hair kinda resembles his!). This is just adorable, and just what I'd expect from your talented self. The paper & layout set this little guy off to a perfect "T" and just made me smile. A good thing to do on a Wednesday afternoon. TFS & Hugs

I had a huge smile on my face before I even got to what you had written. That's a delightfully funny image and you did a great job coloring 'her.' Love the touch of pink in her top-feathers and in the baker's twine. Fab design, my friend!
