My Little Chickadee......FMS218






My list of resolutions for 2016 is very short - I don't want to overwhelm myself  :-) And I try to keep them short and simple so I have a good shot at being successful! Resolution #3 pertains to stamping:  "Work on coloring skills!"  I received a lovely set of Zig markers for Christmas and I need to start practicing! But in the meantime my little chickadee needed some color. So yes I really did stamp his belly with the balloon dots from Balloon Celebration.........


SU Sets used:  Talented Trio, Balloon Celebration, Honeycomb Happiness


The amazingly talented Kim Singdahlsen has a fun sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hope you join us and put your own spin on it!

This is so adorable, Linda! You were so clever using the balloon stamp to color your chick! Your way is definitely smarter and looks so cute. Your chick looks like she has a little more style than mine. :)
