It’s the start of a holiday weekend in my country….though with so many states closing back down because of the rampant virus spread and fireworks canceled so people will stay home, I’m not sure just how much of a celebration it’ll be! So I’m making my OWN party right here!
First – Ellen Hutson has a sale, which is of course HER having the sale and me just pointing at it, but I’m happy to have share some happy shopping we can do! She’s given her staff today off for the long weekend so I hope they’re having a great day with their families!
Second – I’m celebrating my patrons!! It’s the most awesome group of people, friends, really, many of whom have been with me since back in 2013 when I first started this solo venture of mine – others just joined in the last month! People come and go, but I am so thankful for anyone who stops in to offer support, encouragement, and advice anytime along the way. And I love sending them cards – I sent out over 100 just this week! You could come hang out with us if you want, too!
Third – there’s a giveaway of the three cards in this tutorial, so read onward to find out how to qualify to WIN a card from me next week!

For Hummingbird Delight I looked up hummingbirds on Google and followed the colors in one of the photos. I’d love to see ones that you make so be sure to tag me so I can see which bird you picked! The no-line ink in the background did a great job of making a subtle background that lets the bird shine through.
Hey Florida! I know you love your Tickled Pink Flamingo birds, and this one is the easier one to color of the three due to the simplicity of the bird’s structure itself.
Hope Sings Peacock – wearing a monacle! ha! Oh the thoughts I had while coloring it. Is that a handle or a chain drawn in the stamp? How is it held in place? Is the bird holding it on with feather pressure around the glass? Or does this bird have opposable thumbs to hold onto a handle!? A girl needs to know!
To enter for the giveaway – leave your answers too these two questions in the comments section and next week I’ll pick 3 random folks to mail a card to! I’d love to know …..
- which of these is your favorite of the three, and
- what’s the best safe/socially-distanced activity to be had on a holiday celebrated during a pandemic? Let’s come up with fun ideas!
