The Blue/Black Bird

Hopefully no one is feeling like this today but like it or not I think we all feel exactly this guy looks sometimes.

The stamp and sentiment are from Art Impressions.  I did a little embossing on the oval and then cut out the "lovely" bird and mounted it on top.   The sentiment was stamped crooked and I'd LOVE to say that was done on purpose to maybe give it some character or something........ however...........well, you know.  Blame it on bifocals!  Yes!

I turned the sketch sideways in order to use this for the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge and also at Art Impressions (masculine).






Thanks for stopping by.............

I had to laugh at this bird, Lynn! He's so ugly, he's cute! Love how he's sitting on the embossed panel and the plaid background softens his scowl!

I absolutely can identify with the way this bird feels! LOL Your coloring is perfection and I love that plaid paper and the stitched panels! That is the funniest sentiment I've seen in a long time too ;) Thanks for sharing this delightful card with the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge, and we look forward to having you join us again soon! Thanks for the smiles ;)

I have always loved this AI stamp. I have some real oldies, but never got this one. Your coloring is supreme! The sentiment is the best.

What a fun and funny card Lynn! I love this old buzzard! He makes me smile, as it is good that I'm not the only one looking like this these days. haha You have colored him up perfectly Lynn and I love that you sat him on an embossed oval. Love the plaid paper you used too. Your sentiment doesn't look crooked, but then again, I have bifocals too. lol Anyway a great take on the sketch my friend! Keeping hubby in my prayers. Big Hugs, Brenda
