furry or feathered friends

this week at shopping our stash we're celebrating our furry or feathered friends in card or project form! make something which features birds, dogs, cats, llamas, or... well... whatever YOUR favorite furry or feathered animal happens to be! can you guess what *I* chose? yeah, you can, can't you?!

(patterned paper: kaiser, studio calico, american crafts; bird sticker: papaya; rub-on sentiment: fancy pants; pennant and flower brad: studio calico; inks: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand glue tape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)

it's no secret that i loooooooooooove birds and use them A LOT in my projects. this particular anahata sticker is one i have been saving for just the right project, and since SOS is all about celebrating and using what we have, i thought this was a great time to bust it out!

i used this great sketch from the flourishes boutique timeless tuesday challenge even though it ended last night and thus i am not technically eligible or even linked, it's still quite fabulous, don't you think?


this week the 2 sisters challenge blog is looking for things with wings, while the musically-inspired songbird challenge blog is defying gravity, so i'm popping in with both of those, as well.

and now i hope you will pop in at SOS and see what the rest of the design team has made for your inspiration and delight! ♥
