Green: G29, 28, YG45,41 White: C05,03,01,00 Pink shirt: R22, 20, R81, RV00 Inside mouth: R22, 20 Tongue: R81 Hair from blue to red: B39, 37, 34, 32 / V09, 06, 04, 01 / R59, 29, 27, 24, 22

Today is the final day of peeks and the release party is THIS AFTERNOON at 2pm EST on Facebook! 

Are you going to join in and help us celebrate ALL the new sets? Our last stamp set is from fabulous artist Becky Pearce!!! It's called REINDEER GAMES!

And it's already day three of the october krafty peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! How do you like the release so far??
Today we have the cutest little christmas birdies for you from Melissa Baker-Nguyen Merry and Bright Birdies
This fabulous set comes with FIVE main images of these fluffy peeps, plus super fun sentiments and accessory stamps!!


My process for this card was completly different then usual. Normally I color first and then see what I have in my paper stock that matches. This time I picked my papers first, made the layout, then picked out which 2 birdies fit best in this frame and colored them in the colors of the papers.

Copic colors:
Blue-Violet/Grey: BV04, 13, 00 + W07, 05, 03 Red: R59, 27, 24, 22, 20 Yellow: YR27, 23, 21 Y11 white: C03, 01, 00
