My card for Polly's Teapot Tuesday Challenge to make a card with a scene to send to our dear Tonda Baldwin. Late to the party, but life was particularly disruptive to my crafting this last week! Fortunately I got this card in the mail a couple of days ago.
I made a "mini" scene with one of the cute bird images from For the Birds (ret. SU), coloring with Copics and mounting on a card base subtly stamped with a flower background stamp using Versamark.
Thanks for looking! You can check out my blog for a few more details.

OMG this is adorable Stef! That little red wagon brings back memories and it's so cute with the flowers and bird cargo. Your coloring is exquisite! I love the layered clouds (goin' borrow that idea) and that fun saying.

This is as charming as charming can be! There is something about a little red wagon that makes me smile, and one filled with flowers and hearts in the middle of the wheels is even better! The little blue bird of happiness and this sweet little butterfly are absolutely adorable. Thank you for reminding me how great stamping a background in versamark ink looks. I really enjoyed seeing this card today and I know Tonda will treasure it. ~Karen.

Scrapbook.com just posted something on Instagram that said "Life is a series of obstacles preventing me from crafting". It is the story of my life! Fabulous coloring on this sweet scene with the little wagon and fluffy clouds. What a sweet sentiment too! Love it, Stef!
