Tent Topper Birdie


Another challenge begins today at Tuesday Throwdown.  Our theme is "tent topper card".  We're being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish who also provided the images of our challenge.  Be sure and head on over to Tuesday Throwdown to see all the inspiration from the DT and enter for your chance to win a wonderful prize package.

I'll have to admit I've never made a tent topper card and was even a little unsure about what it was.  I guess this is what it is though - and if not, it's done just the same.  I used some old SU paper for them and then framed out the little bird in a Lil Inker stitched circle die.  Matted that with a nestie and then added some white dots with my gel pen.

Looks like Spring is on the way now!!!!!!!

Be sure and check the Tuesday Throwdown blog.......and thanks for stopping by.............

Lynn, your tent topper is just too cute. I love birdies and this one is singing to the hilltops. :-)

Being 23 degrees this morning, my birds are just gathered at the feeder for food and trying to stay warm, I suppose.

This is a show stopper. Sunshine yellow, spring birdy, daises, and even a blue ribbon for first prize. I even threw in a word the check didn't like. Birdy, birdy, birdy. Boy that felt good. LOL.

I'm not sure what a tent topper card is either, but this looks good. And I've seen similar cards with that design so you must be in the ballpark! I really like the bright cheery colors.

So glad you admitted you didn't know 'tent topper' cause I don't either! I just thought this was it. Well it is IT, cause it's plumb purty. Love the bright sunny colors, it's perky & warm, and made me smile. Loving the dots pattern border with the yellow plaid & that bright pop of royal blue. TFS & hugs
