"Ugly Bird" inspiration

So...the story goes like this....my friend Rochelle was in Minnesota this summer and was shopping with a friend at the LSS. Her friend picked up this bird stamp by Hero Arts and told Rochelle that she should buy it. Rochelle looked at her and asked, "Why would I buy that ugly bird stamp? It's UGLY!" So, like a true friend, her friend bought the stamp for her. Rochelle had fun making funny cards with her "ugly bird stamp" and sharing them with our Yahoo group.

Then she decided to have an "ugly bird card contest". She sent 8 of us 6 stamped images of the "ugly bird" and gave us a deadline to send in the cards. I made three cards and sent them in to her. The prize was your very own "ugly bird" stamp.








The top card uses basic grey DP and the sentiment is by Cornish Heritage Farms.



The second card uses Heidi Grace DP and the same sentiment.










This last card uses SU's Gable Green, Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Pink Passion, and Summer Sun as well as that good 'ole cuttlebug.


Who won the contest?

EVERYONE! Yep, Rochelle didn't want to have to choose a winner, and having seen all the entries, it would have been tough....so she sent each of the participants our very own "ugly bird" stamp!!! So...lucky you...there will be more "ugly bird" cards in future blog posts!

Added on Saturday night:
I just saw that Rochelle posted all the ugly bird contest cards on her blog. Go check them out here!

I absolutely love the last one with the colorblocked cuttlebugged background! And btw, I don't think it's an ugly bird. LOL
