"Ugly Bird Is Back"


"Ugly Bird" you say? You don't think he is ugly? I do! If you don't know the story behind
"Ugly Bird" click here! I really love this card. I think I found my mojo. Woo Hoo!! Seriously, the teal doesn't look that bright in person. It's the scans fault. If you want to see more "Ugly Bird" cards click here. I held a contest with some ladies in my yahoo group last year. I sent the 10 ladies that entered 6 stamped "Ugly Bird" images, they could submit 1-6 card entries. The winner won an "Ugly Bird" Stamp of their own. Little did they know I actually bought them all the stamp. They were so surprised when I declared them all winners. It was a lot of fun. I haven't broke this guy out since September. I thought it was time. Plus I got this cool paper Friday and I totally thought of "Ugly Bird" I know, it looks pretty good doesn't it? The "Ugly Bird" stamp is from Hero Arts and it really called. "Bird with long legs". (I prefer Long legged "Ugly Bird")LOL
On the stamped image and the thinking of you image. I sponged sahara sand on it so it wouldn't be so bright and it matches the background paper. Hard to see in the scan though. Also the "Ugly Bird" Image is popped up with dimensionals.

I love that little bird. I have a few of those little guys. There legs are a little shorter. She's just vertically challenged. That's all! Still a cool card. Lisa SBS10
