There's something about little birds that make me happy, maybe it's the promise of spring.....
I wanted to share with you how I made this little chirpy fellow.I drew the shape on some coffee filters, then I used a stamp, except I made this one upside down! Oh dear, next time I shall pay attention.
After you stamp it, or dip it in tea to stain, you just sew him up, stuff it with a tiny bit of stuffing and then embellish it with whatever you want. Already I can think of so many variations....... I will have to post more pictures, I think I have a few more ideas!!!!

I love this hand made ATC card, thank you Donna!
