Chickadee Noel

Chickadees are one of my favourite birds - they are just such fun little creatures, and they always seem so happy. They're also quite friendly, at least around here, and if you have something they'd like to eat, they'll land right on your hand! I've made quite a few versions of this card this year, but I think it's the first I've blogged. Popping it in over at CAS on Sunday - Christmas challenge.


Supplies: chickadee stamp from Impression Obsession; noel from PTI; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Peeled Paint distress ink; classic small & lacy oval Nesties; Bic markers; Sakura Stardust glitter pen; Stampendous fun flock; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic; crochet mat by me 


I've added glitter pen to the ornament hanger & sentiment, and glossed up the ball part of the ornament. After colouring the chickadee, I added Fun Flock to all the white areas, because they are just so FLUFFY I'M GONNA DIE (um, Despicable Me reference. It's early in the morning). 

I'll be mass blogging pretty much the whole week trying to get everything shared! I've been a busy crafter plus I'm trying to avoid housework as long as possible...

xoxo,
Jessi

I'm finding blog commenting works well to distract from housework, so feel free to keep posting, Jessi.
I'm a fan of chickadees too, so I especially love this card. Perfectly framed with that crocheted mat, too.

Beautiful card Jessi! Don't worry about the housework, it will still be there after all your blogging. (Because I'm sure, like many males in families, they can't see it and just pitch in to help out. LOL!)
