Less is More #359 - Birds / Feathers

Hi there,

A very short and sweet post from me today as I am still chasing my tail in the run-up to Christmas. Our theme at Less is More this week is Birds / Feathers.

My card is a simple stamp it and water colour it card featuring the bird crazy stamp set. At first I only had the bird on the card but I thought he was obviously looking wistfully at something, so as my Santa sleigh stamps were all a little too large I decided to add a simple star. I wonder if his Christmas wish will come true?

I'm entering this into:
4 Crafty Chicks #381 - Christmas /Winter Critters
CAS on Friday #123 - Christmas
CRAFT Challenge  14 December - Christmas
Paperminutes #516 - Christmas Caps
The Merry Christmas Challenge #47 - Anything Goes + Christmas
The Sisterhood of Crafters - All About Christmas
Watercooler Wednesdays WWC149 - Occasions

You can see the fantastic card that our guest designer Michelle Wallace (our October winner) has made for us by clicking on her name, and if you pop over to the challenge blog  as well, all the awesome cards from the design team are there.
That's it from me for now. Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.

I sure hope his Christmas wish comes true, he looks so cute he deserves to get what he wants! :) Fun water color card, I love the simple layout and square shape. Your blending of colors looks super!

Well Sharon, I wish I could do as beautiful work when I'm chasing my tail! Love that image of the anxious looking little bird with the Santa hat on its head. Great job colouring! And I do hope his wish comes true so he can stop looking so anxious. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Sorry I'm so late, hunnie! I love this little guy (I think I must be one of the only people that doesn't have these bird stamps! lol) and love the classic layout. The blue wash is lovely and the slim red border ties it all together wonderfully xx
