Papertake Christmas & Birds

The Papertake Weekly Challenge this week is to make a Christmas card. This card uses the House Mouse stamp Peppermint Delight. I just think he is so adorable. I colored him with prismacolor pencils and OMS and added some sparkle to his peppermint with the Spica clear glitter pen. The paper is from DCWV Christmas Stack.Yesterday, my children came running in the house full of excitement. "Mom, get your camera!" They had found a bird's nest. So, I grabbed my camera and shot some pictures. It was really cool because the nest is right at eye level, so they can see right into the nest. It was so much fun to see their excitement and we decided that we need to document their growth on a daily basis, so these are the first pictures.
Day 1--They are so tiny, and alot of fluff.Day 2--Their eyes are open today. The kids are really enjoying seeing the changes taking place on a daily basis.

Have a blessed day!
