Curtain Call Act 63 Bless this Nest

Happy New Year again!!!

Hope you all had a good start today!!! Did you make any fun New Years Resolutions??? My Resolution is to take good care of myself, since I don't get any younger *wink* and trying new things!!! Pushing myself out of my comfort zone is another thing I'm trying this year, since I'm so stuck in my ways!!!  Not sure if that is a good thing or not...LOL!?!

Today, we are showing you the new Curtain Call Act 63 colors. I hope you like them as much as I do and play along with us!!!


Here is my playful idea.....!!! My inspiration came from the Moxie Fab World Trigger Tuesday Challenge ~ Strickly Stripes.



I used the super cute PTI Set called Bird Watching. Definitely one of my favorite PTI Stamps :) !!! The image was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa and colors with Copic Markers. I also used a Blender Pen for the *grass* using the Always Artichoke Ink with it. I also had to opted for SU Dusty Durango instead of the SU Cajun Gaze. Kinda the same anyway :) !!! So the DP in the background is from the SU Dusty Durango Prints Collection and the matching Satin Ribbon is from the PTI Terracotta Tile Collection. The clouds were done with the DP from the SU Bashful Blue Prints Collection and the PTI Cloud 1 & 2 Dies. I also added a border of the PTI Medium Scalloped Border and topped it off with some Silver Pearls.

Now it's time to check out the rest of the Curtain Call Team:

                                     Christina MacLaren ~ Seaglass & Sentiments (on vacation this week)
                                     Jean Martin ~ Stampin' Scrapper
                                     Julie Lacey ~ Stamps & Taxes
                                     Laurel Seabrook  ~ Seabrook Designs
                                     Makiko Jones ~ MakInk Studio (playing with Minnie and Mickey Mouse)
                                     Monika Davis ~ M.A.D. Stamper
                                     Piali Biswas ~ Touch of Creation
                                     Stacey Schafer ~ Stacey's Stamping Stage
