Colorful Bird Hello -- Catch the Bug Oldie but Goodie

Hello, and happy Thursday!  It's almost Friday, which is almost the weekend!  Hang in there, it'll be here before you know it!

It's Oldie but Goodie time on the Catch the Bug Blog, and I found a delightful spring bird I wanted to color up for today's post.

I live in a very diverse environment.  Within a 3 block area there is a lake, wetlands, woods, and a meadow.  This makes for a great variety of birdlife, especially during spring and fall migration.  It's not at all uncommon for me to spot Red Breasted Nuthatches, Common Loons, Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Downy Woodpeckers, Tufted Titmice, Sandhill Cranes, Wood Ducks, Osprey, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks, and any number of other birds great and small all within my 3 block area at any given time.  I love to go for walks with my dog Winter and see what we will see!

I have to tell you, I have never seen a bird that looks exactly like this one, but you just never know!

This Bugaboo Stamps digi is called, appropriately, Spring Bird.  I colored Spring Bird with Copic markers, then used a Spellbinders foil and cut set to hot foil the card and cut out the bird.  There's something very elegant about foiling, isn't there?  I wanted to keep the rest of the card simple so the foiling really showed up.

That's it for me and my Oldie but Goodie post.  Check out what the other talented designers have created at Catch the Bug Blog
