FTHS April Blog Hop

Hi!
Welcome to the From The Heart Stamps April Blog Hop.
Our theme this month is ....I'm no spring chicken!
(tell me about it!  lol)

If you have arrived from Calypso's Blog , you are in the right place,
if not why don’t you start on the From The Heart Stamps Blog so you don’t miss anything.

Here is my project, using Spectacular Birdbrain:

This also is my sample for this weeks sketch challenge.
Here's the sketch:
I really liked the loopy border
and I new I had a straight loopy border die cut from The Cat's Pajamas.
...so here's how I got it to follow the curve without puckering:
 by cutting little notches in the bottom. Easy peasy!

Birdbrain is colored with copic markers and I added a little sparkle to
 the red eyeglasses with clear Wink of Stella on the frame part and
 Glossy Accents on the lenses.

Oh, and I found the perfect little sentiment ( ..you still look like a spring chick!)
on the Birthday Candle Birdbrain set.

Thanks for stopping by.

Now head over to Imke's Blog.
and see what she has created. As you hop along, leave a comment on each blog. 
We will select a random winner from the comments
on each blog to win one image of your choice. 
Our hop will end on Sunday April 9th 2017 at 6 am, 
and the winners will be posted on Wednesday April 13th.
      
'till next time,
Doni
