My stamping buddy and I were in a little shop outside of town when we found this oh so great cartoon buzzard stamp and I just had to have it. I know a couple of people who will be getting this for their birthday. The  stamp comes with a ''happy birthday from the bluebird of happiness' sentiment which I have stamped on the inside. I have kept the card relatively free of embellishments as it is going to a male relative and as my husband once told me "we don't like a lot of frill"  :O)!

Stamp: Art Impressions Buzzard Set ; back ground stamp  Impression Obsession 'Spatter'
Paper: Stampin Up whisper white, basic black, gumball green, tangerine tango (for the pinwheel), summer sun
DP: Stampin Up  'Be of Good Cheer' (gumball green polka dotted paper);  large orange paper in the background bought at Michaels,
Embossing folder: crackled
Colour medium: Prismacolor markers
Embellishments: black half pearls, pinwheel (Doodle Pantry Mini Pinwheels Template &  pinwheel cut out of tangerine tango paper and stamped on one side with the Spatter background stamp) ))

  3. Haha! Love this! I can think of a couple of 'old buzzards' that this would be great for!

  4. LOL! Love this fabulous bird. Great job coloring and perfect masculine design. What a great humorous card.
