The prompt this time around is "feathers". They can be dies or stamps, with or without birds attached.
I made a birthday card with an embossed panel and designer paper. Coloring was done with Copics.
Full details, birthday card:
Stamps: Hero Arts Three Song Birds, Inque Boutique Sentiments Paper: X-Press It Blending Card, other white, blue Core'dinations card stock, Echo Park Fine and Dandy designer paper Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics for coloring Accessories: Sizzix Flowers embossing folder
With a few changes I used the same stamp for a Christmas card:
I hope it looks enough like a Christmas card. The frames and poinsettias were already made up and in my stash, waiting to be used. The poinsettias and some of the enamel dots are covering up the stamped flowers. Frame and image colored with Copics. I used a white gel pen and glitter on the red frame.

I made the frame for the second card specifically so I could play along with The Sisterhood of Crafters "Frame It" Challenge.
I'm pretty sure it took longer to write this blog post than it did to make the cards. I'll come back and visit again Monday. You all have a nice weekend and I hope you can find time to do whatever makes you happy.
