Silly Blue Footed Booby Card

Silly Blue Footed Booby Card

I don’t often keep a card I make just for me. But this guy? I might not be sending him out anywhere. First, coz he’s a Booby! That was my favorite bird in school – I was so excited some scientist would even think of calling a bird a Booby. But those sentiments – they’re HILARIOUS. Expect to see more of this guy on instagram over the coming months, I wuv him. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

So simple. So silly. So….yeah. He’s staying with me.

  15. Sandy – too funny! Love the bird & LOVE your card! It made me laugh on this sunny, Friday morning! Thanks for telling us about ‘watercolor’ month…..I have been wanting to take one of your classes (well, not just one!), so I’m celebrating ‘watercolor’ month by doing that! (and thank you for the coupon).

  16. Two take-aways: a really colorful shadow from layering (WOW) this can be used so often, AND the wonderful idea of painting the signs and then outlining. Thank you for this funny bird, a nice morning smile, and good tips.
