Sparkle N Sprinkle with Two Crafty Critter Crazies

Hello, Critter Loving Friends!
Hoping you are doing well and enjoying Life.

A new 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge begins today!


We have a design team call happening!

2 Crafty Critter Crazies

Sparkle N Sprinkle is sponsoring November's challenge, which ends November 30. A random winner is selected, and a guest designer for the upcoming month is chosen.

My card features this fun "Birdhouse Friends" Digital Set (also available in rubber here).

I colored this image with Copic Markers, and this colored version is also available in the SNS Digital Shop with the background and without the background, for your crafting convenience.

Sentiment stamped in red to match the red borders:

The sentiment is repeated on the inside in a larger size to stress the point:

Such a fun card to make!

Hallo liebe Donna,

ich liebe deine Funcard. Sie ist so wunderschön gestaltet. Ich liebe die Details auf der Karte.
Die Videos von den Capybaras sind unglaublich. Ich kannte diese Tiere bisher gar nicht. Sie sind Freunde mit allen Tieren das ist wirklich sensationell.
Ich wünsche dir einen schönen Tag. Hugs & Kisses Silvi

I did have a few problems maybe a couple weeks ago with blogger, wouldn't automatically save my post and it wouldn't even let me type at times but it is back to normal now.

That card is just the sweetest, just love your coloring and the bird in the tall grass for the corner embellishing and the bird on the sentiment is so neat!

OMG, now I'm totally in love with Capybaras! I always thought they were cute, but they're beyond cute. Adorable! Hmmm... about Blogger... I had a couple of incidents, but it turned out it was my internet. It has been sketchy lately, mostly in the mornings, which is my time to be on the computer. I can't get the followers gadget to work on my blog and don't really want to do Google +, grrrr. Also can't get the LinkWithin (that shows thumbnails of related posts) to show. I'm off on a tangent... Anyway, your card -- I have this image in a Bugaboo digi and absolutely love it! It's printed twice and sitting in a box waiting for me to SHOW it how much I love it, sheesh. So many Bugaboos still to color. I went a little crazy with them. It's a weakness. How adorable it looks on your card! Perfect little accent dies you used, too. What fun!

Broni said...

Oh my gosh, how adorable is this! I am loving this image Donna! The birdhouse tower is fantastic, I would love to have one of those on my patio! lol. Love the little birdie peeking out from behind! The 3d birds perched in the grass and on the sentiment panel are wonderful additions, so lively! A wonderful card full of spring and summer things that bring some brightness on such a dull day!

What error message are you getting Donna? Do you get a pink banner across the top with a bunch of code in it? Email me with the details and I'll see if I can help out. sending hugs :)

Donna Phelan said...

This is fabulous! I love everything about it! Gorgeous patterns and prints in just the perfect colors and shades! The sweet birds and birdhouse image colored to perfection--it's really a darling image! Love that sentiments too, it gives me an awwwwww feeling! This is above and beyond, just delightful in every way! xo~

Love the little birdhouses and birds. Really sweet card. My little birds that stay year round, even in the coldest of winters, sit on my wrought iron railing in the mornings and wait for me to come with the birdseed. Beautifully designed card, lots going on to look at and enjoy. Love the sentiment too!!
