Blue Jay

The past three days have been crazy!! The weather has been awesome so lots of outdoor work got done as well as some house cleaning inside. Come evening, we're watching movies, leaving me little or no time to stamp. I had a few minutes this afternoon to hide in my room and this is what I made, using a Doodle Pantry image, Blue Jay. Since time was tight, I used the color version along with some scrap designer paper. I followed a sketch over at the OWH blog, Stars and Stripes. There are some other challenges I would like to play along with:

Mark's Finest Papers Simple Salutations - Winter bird
Corrosive Challenge - Flutter By 
Glitter N Sparkle Challenge - Things with Wings

Getting take-out for dinner. After all, the Steelers play Monday night football, so I can't be distracted with dishes and such!! Go black and gold!

Like the pretty Bluejay card. Reminds me of the baby BlueJays I watched hatch & grow up in a neat in a Photina bush in my front yard. The parent BlueJays were very watchful of the nest. When I went outside to get the mail one time I forgot to wear a hat and one of the parent BlueJays swooped & pecked me on the head. Especially like the lace. Thanks for entering Mark's Finest Papers Simple Salutations Winter Bird challenge.
