Last weekend my girlfriend from Des Plaines, IL, surprised me with a visit.  It was really supposed to have been a romantic get away with her hubbie, or as I understood, but it simply was a "gotta go support my girlfriend in her crisis" weekend........and hubby was in on it!  I still can't believe it.

Anyhow while we were in the sunroom looking out at the many many birds flocking around the feeders, a chickadee came up close to the window and Pat had a chance to see it!  She couldn't believe her eyes!  I guess they don't get many in Des Plaines because of the city atmosphere.  Here in the country we strive to keep the birds flocking year around.  My husband says I'm afraid I'll find a dead one - well maybe!

So today I put together 10 different cards from my stash just to get them out of the way!  2 of them were chickadees and I immediately thought about Pat and her shout of glee at seeing one.  So here is my 6x6 creation using a FRED SHE SAID image found here:  WINGED THINGS!
This image WINTER CHICKADEE is already precolored; however, you get the digi image and the precolored image as well for one price.  I chose lots of fun background colors for this card and used some beautiful sheer ribbon I had on hand.

Now to the embarrassing moment!  I was so tired one day this week - on my new meds - that I sat down for a nap under my afghan.  Hubby took this picture; unbeknown to me, my TinkerBelle had jumped up and was warming her self on top of mine.  I never felt a thing!
So hope you come on over to FRED SHE SAID and try out one of the stampsets - especially those that have both precoloured images and color yourself.  You can always beef up the color if your printer isn't doing it's best.  I'm using a pretty simple HP and the color is fantastic.  So have a great day!
