Thursday Sparks Challenge

Happy Thursday

How is your week going? So far so good here but I have to say I am totally ready for the weekend!

Can you tell lately that I am totally addicted to stamping, cardmaking etc.  I really am.  I am having so much fun and that is all that matters to me!  Don't get me wrong- I totally love my scrapbooking and will NEVER give it up But I have been needing a change.  Stamping is just up my alley right now!!

Last week I entered the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge and here is the prompt:
You can see all the details of the challenge HERE

Well, I was playing around with my stamps (I bought some new ones!) and I saw the adorable little bird and I thought I would enter the challenge again but with a different take on it.  For this card I did some paper piecing for my trees and hearts.  I then colored in my bird red using my Spectrum Noir markers. I then added some twine from The Stringery! I still included the basic colors of white, and grey but just in different manners.  I really like how  this turned out!  I like it even better than my first one -- seen HERE

supplies
cardstock- neenah solar white
markers- spectrum noir
stamps- paper smooches
ink- hero arts, memento
twine- the stringery
paper- imaginisce

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with the November Moxxie Blog Hop!  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
