Happy Bird-Day

Squawky Squawk! Hello my lovely crafters How are we all today? Has there been ANYYYYYYTHING at all that may have given you a hint as to what this card may contain?? *chuckles*

So I have been perusing the world wide web, as one does and was browsing the CDAC site when I came across a shiny designer!

Make way people for the one and only

Lia Stampz, digital stamps

Okay.... are you back with me now? Good! You can go and visit Lia again soon!
Now how awesome are those cutey-patootie designs! ya ha! Like soooo totally quirky cute! I had one of those rare moments looking at the site going ... ohhh I like that, and that... and that.... and that.... and that.... you get my drift ya? Before I knew it I was in sweet Lia Love!

Now Lia isn't new to designing, looking at her blog shes been around a while but she is finally getting the recognition she deserves! And to tie in with this she will soon be starting a challenge blog and is looking for some Design Team members!

I could not resist! So armed with Kiki the Parrot and an upcoming birthday I got in my crafting perch and created this:

How cuteeeeeeee is kiki! And so versatile, it took me a good few attempts to get the colours I wanted for kiki but finally settled on Green and Yellow!

I coloured Kiki using my coloursoft pencils again.... new favourite or WHAT!? And the yellow paper was embossed using my shiny new texturz plates!

The letters I typed in word over the green colouring and printed and cut them out. I VERY carefully used double sided tape to attach them in the right order! Hahaha! Clumsy me would most definitely have switched a few letters around tehehe!

The finishing touches come in the form of Kiki's eyes! I wanted to bring 'em alive a bit so used some varnish to give them some sparkle!

You can just about see it in this photo here! Oh I had so much fun with Kiki! I have 3 more versions printed out and ready to colour.. I'm thinking a bit of Blue and Red might be awesome! And also wouldnt Kiki work well as an owl? So versatile!

Lia's DT Call is open until June 30th and all of the details can be found HERE

I do hope you've enjoyed my little creation and introduction to Lia!

This just leaves me with:
