Here to Stay is the New Bird

Monday, November 20, 2017
Hi friends! It's Monday again and the start of a holiday week. It seems it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without our whole family fighting a respiratory illness. All my boys are home sick today and get Wednesday through Friday off anyway, so it's a super short week for me. I'm hoping we'll all recuperate enough by Thursday to do the turkey dinner trot to both families' events. :)

I wandered into my studio yesterday afternoon and played a bit with the new Good Cheer DIGITAL Set. I had visions of making a slew of cards, but only had enough energy to finish up this one. This little new bird totally makes me smile, so I had to start with him.

I had already printed the Good Cheer DIGITAL set out on cardstock with my laser printer and colored with Copics, so it was just a matter of cutting out the images.  I used circle dies for the sentiment and holly and decided to fussy cut the birdie.  A couple pieces of a patterned paper layered over a white dry embossed panel completes the layout and I tucked in a partial glitter snowflake and topped it off with a sweet little bow.

Here's what the printable PDF of the Good Cheer digi looks like printed (coloring for display purposes only - I colored these on the couch while the boys were watching football). The sentiments in this set were so fun to design - I just love the whimsical look to them. And bonus... all digis are on sale through the end of the month and we now have 8 sets to choose from!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!
