{Birdie Conversation Kit}
created by Lisa Arana

I had sooo much fun creating this little collection of cards.
Collections like this come together so easily because you are basically making the same card over and over again. I just personalize each one by mixing up the paper combos and using some different embellishments.
This layered paper look was inspired by Marcy Penner's signature style...
(gotta give kudos where there are due)

And here are some close ups of each little chick:

My good friend is having a birthday this weekend. 
Her last name is Foxworthy.
I HAD to use this stamp. 
YUP! There was just no way around that one!
Love how this turned hopefully she does too.

Phyllis Harris makes the sweetest images....such a great artist...
For this card I pulled out my water color paints. Definately a technique I can use some more practice with, but I really do enjoy the process....

I also participated in the November {be inspired} challenge. Have you??
There are prizes, so if you haven't yet - you should definately check it out!

I drew my inspiration from the color challenge.
I wish sparkle and shine picked up better on camera.
Hopefully you get the idea (yes, that is silver vellum)?

Well, that's all I got for ya this week!!
Hope you enjoyed my creations :)
Now to continue along on the hop....

We have another great prize for you this week:

All you have to do is leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win. The winners will be announced Monday on the Unity blog.

Here's a list of all the pretty faces in today's blog hop:
