Birdhouse Brian

Hello sweet friends!  It's Inspiration Tuesday over on the By LORi Designs Blog.  Lori has a new collection of sweet images called the Pedal Pushers and I've used one of them on my card today.

This handsome guy is Birdhouse Brian ... isn't he a cutie?  Looks like he's getting ready for spring and the return of the birdies.  Actually, it looks like he already has one tenant and he hasn't even hung up his new birdhouse yet lol!  I colored the image with copics and colored pencils.  The little clipbord is a new die I picked up at my LSS.  I added some buttons and a strip of washi tape.  Can you believe this is the very first time I've used washi tape?  I have several rolls of it, I just never quite know what to do with it.  The sentiment is from Lori's Everyday Sentiments II set.  Be sure to stop by the By LORi Designs Blog to see what the rest of this amazing DT is sharing today.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, Anita
