Spring Colours at Little Red Wagon

I am thoroughly reveling in the warmer weather - the last couple of days have been GORGEOUS - yesterday at the wildlife park we walked around in t-shirts, in the sunshine. Today it's nearly 20 C, and sunny again. My quilling paper arrived on Friday, though, so I've been twirling like a fiend. I had to play along with little red wagon again, though, and their challenge this week is SPRING colours. The new challenges are posted Wednesday, so link up by tomorrow night! Green is the colour I think of first for spring, and I also think of flowers & birds returning. (Now, if those birds did NOT include the three families of starlings nesting in our carport and bombing the car every chance they get, I *would* be OK with that, lol!)

Supplies: Stamps from Paper Smooches: My Peeps, Party Posse, Word Up;
Palette Noir ink; Versamark & white EP;
paper from Basic Grey "Lauderdale;"
standard circle & oval Nesties;
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic

Poppy-uppy! And glossy!

xoxo,
Jessi

Love that poppy-uppy and glossy birdie, Jessi!! This definitely looks like spring. And I love your new profile photo!!! GORGEOUS!!

(Sorry I haven't been able to stop by much recently--real life has been calling, rather LOUDLY, I might add! It was a treat to be able to stop by to see your creations again.)

This is really cute!! That bird stamp could be trimmed and almost look like an Angry Bird! (My kids are really into that!!)

So starlings are a pain in the butt whatever country they are in then!...I think they are the yobs of the bird world!! :0)

I bet if you sent this crazy looking bird out to the carport he'd scare off those starlings!! I like his poppy-uppiness and glossiness. :)
