I was catching up on reading some of the bazillion blogs I like to look at and POOF! I HAD to make this card.
The inspiration came from here - Kendra in Tuscon posts lots of fabulous pictures for inspiration on Wednesdays and I have earmarked many of them to come back to "someday" but this one just shouted PUNCHES - make this right now before it is the middle of summer and totally inappropriate!
My card is not a direct "reenactment" of the t-shirt but I didn't stray too far. The fourth bird is on the inside.
Reminds me of our family - Dad and Mom at home, one little chick about to hop off that branch and one that is basically gone. I sure am proud of the little chicks I have raised!
But if this really represented our family, I'd have to be the short fatter bird... (scrunched up face here)
I am excited about the holly leaves because I figured out how to make them from punches without having to draw the lines - just my two little paws, the paper and the wide oval punch! Problem is... I can't really teach it to you with just photos since I need both hands to do it. If only I knew how to do videos... and if only I had a tripod....
Learning to do video and learning to put it on the blog is on my list of things to do this year. Hopefully before we start making Christmas items again, I'll figure it out.
