Good Morning!
Things are getting back to normal! Only the school run to do today.....
And because it's Monday....................
Today sees the start of Challenge #66 over at                                        Tammy's Scrapin Corner
Here is my DT card..

The Challenge ~ Manly Card/Father's Day

We are sponsored this week by SKDigi's  I chose Flamingo set of 2 Thank you so much x
I used just one of the images so cute, and thought  'he could look after a smaller version!'  So merged them together   ....Now I know that Flamingo's are Pink lol..but, when I researched them? I found their young are Grey!   I'm not telling you what sex this youngster is lol..cause I don't know! he! he!
I've colored them both with Copics . Glossy Accents on their eyes... Distress Inks for the Sky...Papers/Ribbon/Embellishments from stash...
The butterflies are a x-cut punch....Magnolia flower with a tiny WO flower in the center.

Very cute and how clever of you to make a smaller baby one.

Thanks for joining us at Alphabet Challenge Blog.

I like how you've merged the different sized birds into one image to make the daddy and a baby one too - so sweet. The pink, black and white color combo is an unusual one for a male card and I think it works perfectly with this flamingo theme! And as always, I love the ribbon you've used!
