making music with my heart...

Good morning all. I literally spend the morning working on this card and am still not positive that I did this image justice. Still feeling a little stressed today while waiting to hear the status of my job, everything will be alright whether or not I get laid off but I just want to know and get past it. So in the meantime I am waiting for the phone to ring, praying and coloring.

I find it amazing that I can look at a chickadee and know that is what it is, but not know how to color it, without looking it up. So I am sitting at my desk with the bird book propped open in front of me. Coloring these amazing images for the February new releases from Our Daily Bread Design. This adorable chickadee if from the set "You Will Find Refuge". I love this set. I have to say that the chickadee is one of my favorite birds. They are so tiny but so bold, they aren't afraid of anything. As soon as I fill my bird feeder they are right in there, they don't even wait for me to go back into the house, and they always make me smile.
