An interesting choice for you today over at
Feathers or fur?
Well it's fur for me every time. It's not that I don't like birds, I do, as long as they are at a distance. My Grandma let her budgie fly around her sitting room and it used to terrify me when I was little. Imagine my horror when our eldest son, having spent ages in an aviary on an outing, announced that he would reeeeally like a budgie!! We duly went off to choose said bird, blue, quite cute and named Paddy who lived quite happily (at liberty) and was well cared for in Dec's room until he left home at which point Mummy here took over little Paddy's care until he went to make angel wings at the age of 13!! I have not yet quite recovered...but I'm getting there!! So, it's dogs, cats, horses, cattle, bunny rabbits, hamsters and all things furry for me and here is a little furry cutie to prove it!!
The starting point was a sketch that Mrs Heart aka Jules has so kindly shared and this particular fabulousness is sketch 5 from her ever growing collection. I used LOTV papers to make up the base and happened to choose a furry LOTV stamp too, coloured with Promarkers. Some Doodlebug Sprinkles and an enormous flower from my stash as finishing touches.
We'd love it if you came and shared your furry or feathery creations with us and if you do, then we'd love to hear why as well!!
