Happy Birthday, Chick!

Good morning!  I hope the winter weather hasn't hit too hard and that you're staying warm!  It is frigid school today, so we'll be having some fun at home.  Does "Mom, I'm bored!" count as fun?  LOL

After a short holiday break, we are back with a new sketch at From the Heart's a fun one, so I hope you will give it a try!


It's the birth of a new year, so I decided to make a birthday card and went with Birdbrain Balloon.  I think maybe she's had too much cake!  How do I know?  That's what I look like when I've had too many cupcakes!  LOL  She's colored with pencils, and I've given her a bit of sparkly eye shadow along with a sparkly balloon.  I pulled some of my favorite papers from my stash (I've had them forever...I ration them!) and done some layering and embellished with some twill and a bunch of colorful buttons; yes, I do love buttons!  I like how bright and cheery this one turned out.
