The Little Bird


Once I saw a little bird. Come hop, hop, hop; So I cried, "Little bird, Will you stop, stop, stop?" And was going to the window To say, "How do you do?" But he shook his little tail, And far away he flew.

That little nursery rhyme graces a page in an old book from my boys and was stuck in my head while making these hybrid cards featuring the new YellowThroat Image from TiffanyDoodles. I opened some digital paper in my photoediting program, added a while silhouette and then the bird silhouette and printed it. I then inked the edges and added a stamped sentiment before adhering it to a card base. I made three of these little birdie cards.


All the bird releases are available in the store today, with a special limited sale!
