Jeanne is our host for the HYCCT1210 challenge. She asked us to make a shaped card. So I pulled out my Cricut and the Wild Card 2 cartridge. The setting called for 4.5", but actually, the card is kinda small. So I would recommend 5.5"
I decided my parrot must be Pink and only added a little orange Copic marker to the beak and feet. One googlie eye and Polly is done! Oh, I did add a little extra "feathers" to Polly's wing. It just seemed a little short. Thanks for a fun challenge Jeanne! Thanks for taking a peek!

You captured my profile and googlie eye just perfectly!!! LOL! I almost fell off my chair when I saw the title to your card..you are a funny one Kathleen! Very cute card....as long as she's not looking for a cracker (I've heard that one a "few" times before)..... :)
Shape of a cage, parrot residing. Simply the best in tackling this challenge. Clever!

She is a cutie Kathleen. Love the different layers of dp you used on her. She reminds me of the bird on Mary Poppins umbrella handle that talks to her at the end of the movie, except your's is pink!
