Little Things in LIfe

Things are still pretty lifeless looking here in Michigan. Not even a sign of buds on the trees yet. I looked for the hint of crocus in the flower beds but they seem to still be asleep too.
So I decided it was time to poke around in the art room and see if I could see any signs of spring there.
I found a stamp that I had purchased a few weeks ago but had not put it in ink yet. Sure enough, there was this lovely little hummingbird!
I have been trying to get myself back into stamping and coloring and this little fella just buzzed right into my heart. I used Twinkling H2O's to color him. I haven't used them in a while and had forgotten what a treat they are.
But of course the Paper Embroidery is still calling my name so I decided to combine the two mediums.
Now this little guy is ready to "flutter" through the mails to hopefully cheer someone else of the winter doldrums.
Hope spring is winging its way to you.


  1. Oh what a fun stamp you got Sallyann! I love your coloring and I'll bet in real life it shimmers beautifully. Your paper embroidery on the side really compliments the image!

  2. The combination of the two mediums is just so pretty! Beautifully done!
