A Little Birdie Told Me...

that someone AWFULLY special is having a birthday, and soon!!! In fact, I BELIEVE it is Sunday, so obviously, if she is reading this, sorry your card is late, LOL!! I know she will understand....right?
Anyway, this is my card for today's Inspiration challenge. I chose this lampshade from the Hunkydory Home site to be my inspiration. I also used Taylor's Cupcake Sketch from today!! I used Chocolate Chip, Rose Red and Pretty in Pink for this card. The DP is from the Chocolate Chip Patterns pack. I colored the bird with my SU markers and added a shadow with my Copic Cool Grey No3. Honestly, if you are wanting a grey shadow, which I prefer, there really is no SU alternative...going gray is WAY to dark!! I added some 4 different ribbons from SU as well as some silver brads. The only thing that ISN'T from SU is the spiral clip, but I can't help myself!! This card is kinda plain, but everything I tried just junked it up, so I left it alone. I did layer my ribbons, so it TECHNICALLY fits the Ways To Use It challenge from this week...yayy me!!

Well, that is it for me now, I am EXHAUSTED and I have to work in the morning and then afterwards, I am locking myself in my stamp room until I get SOMETHING done!! Thanks for stopping by!!
It is time to share another picture of my nephew Jared, but today you get a treat, you get BOTH my favorite men!! This is my DH with Jared yesterday morning...can you see Jared's little WILL NOT lay down!! Cracks me up every time I see it!!
