Swirly hello

I definitely slacked off on challenges over the holidays so I'm trying to get back into it. I'm doing it in a big way by playing along with Our Creative Corner this week and also trying to wiggle into a spot on to their Design Team. Wish me luck! I've had so much fun doing my own challenge and working on the A Muse Team and the Color Dare so why not throw my hat in for another one! Their challenge this week is to be inspired by this chickadee image. I used the colours as my inspiration. Focused on the black, red and white (as it is my favourite colour combo, as you probably know) and added some kraft in for good measure. I love chickadees and have fond memories of watching them huddle up against the cold during the long winters of my prairie childhood. This also works for Splitcoast Stampers Ways to Use it #304 - Everyone is Feelin' Twine.

Hope you like my creation and hope you have a great week. Be sure to check out my challenge from yesterday and remember I have something REALLY BIG planned for my 100th challenge next week!

Thanks for stopping by... I always thrilled to have you.
