Mel Jen's Inspiration Post and Challenge

This week's challenge at MelJens is to make a card with a Cold and Snow Theme. I used one of MelJens new images, called "Cozy Little Chickadees" and colored them with Copic Markers. I used DP from Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird collection (very fitting, right?) and cardstock from PTI. I added dimentionals and a ribbon.

I love wild birds. I even have an African Grey Parrot named Cosmos that I have had for about ten years. I am from the West and have never seen a chickadee. However, my favorite bird of all time is a blue bird. So, I just waved my magic Copic marker and waa laa blue birds. Ain't life grand"

I followed the sketch at The Sweet Stop and I also participated in the Digital Tuesday Challenge of "Anything Goes".

Hoping you all have a wonderful safe and joyous New Year. See you in '11.

Make sure you check out all the wonderful creations by the DT using these images! You can purchase these fabulous images and others from MelJen's Designs at the Whimsy Site.
