Just Because…. Its Sunday…

Well I have to tell you about this little chap stirred up quite a storm I have said to a couple of crafting blog buddies from across the pond that when I saw this bird in the black Digi form he looked like a coal tit… WELL!  For those of you that don’t know Coal Tits are one of many English birds in the tit family! 
If you have not heard of these birds either here is a link

Anyway…. this Post is about Pile It On too!
and the sponsor this week is the Fabulous Stamp n Doodle
and the image is called Winter Chickadee
I have coloured the Chickadee with Distress inks, Swiss dots on the just because section and distressed lightly and added stickles to the edges, with a busy backing paper I have kept the foreground fairly simple, just adding 3 black faceted gems.
Ohhh lots of Challenges to pile on!
