CSAYL: Gimme the Bird! ~

Hi there friends! I’m typing this up while I’m at work (shhh!! Don’t tell my boss!), and I just had the most unnerving guy come in here. I have this sick feeling in my stomach that he was totally casing the joint…probably nothing, but I think I’ll be calling security for an escort out to my car tonight! Blech…hate that feeling!
Anywho…it’s Friday and time for another challenge with Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long! Our challenge this week is sponsored by Pink Cat Studio Stamps. The winner will get 5 digi stamps of their choosing! Gotta love free stamps!! The challenge is to use a bird image on your project.
I used the Penguin Candy Cane Swing digi stamp.  It's printed twice and the swing/penguin duo are popped up on dimensional foam tape.  I used some black embroidery floss for the swing ropes.  On the candy cane, some Martha Stewart Garnet Glitter and Glossy Accents dress it up.  The pattern paper is Cosmo Cricket Jolly By Golly from a year or two (?) ago.  FYI: for reasons un-beknownst to me, the pictures I post in Blogger are showing up blurry; however, if you click on the full size, the picture is clear as a bell!
We are honored to have the wonderful Sam of Stamping by Sam joining us as a Guest Designer this week! Please bop around to all my teammates blogs - they are so full of talent!!  Have a fabulous weekend!!  :o) lyss

Oh, sorry you got the creeps at work. Yikes, that would be scary. Back when I worked, I used to have a small fear that someone would come back and kill us for turning down their loan. People are crazy. I made sure I was extra nice and helpful when someone didn't qualify and offered tips on what to do to put themselves in a position to qualify.
