Martini Chicks

I have a bottle gift-tag to share today for our weekly inspiration post for From The Heart Stamps.
My lovely friend and teamie, Kathy, made a fabulous tag for our September Blog Hop, so after I read her tutorial showing us how to make one, I couldn't resist and had to have a go myself...

This image is Martini Chicks, and one of my favourite Birdbrains, oh, who am I kidding? ALL the Birdbrains are my favourites! :)
I've coloured it using promarkers, but added some touches with pencils too.
The patterned paper is Pretty Please Spring by MME, I've had this pad for years, so i'm not sure if it's still available anymore, though I very much doubt it.
The stitched grosgrain ribbon is by Stampin Up, a scrap found in my ribbons tub.
'sister' was cut using a Clearly Bessotted Stamps die.

Kathy, thank you so much for the inspiration. This is exactly what the blog hop is all about :) xx

I'd like to enter this tag at:
Crafting from the Heart - anything goes
Shopping Our Stash - chicken! (can use a different bird)
I love Promarkers - It's all about tags
Crafting By Designs - pretty in pink

UPDATE 17/09: Woohooo! Thank you xx

By the way, there's still time for YOU to hop with us too, there's prizes to be had, and that AWESOME main prize of working with Faith herself to create a new Birdbrain!
(click the graphic below to start hopping)

We'd love for you to link up a birdbrain creation of your own too using any of the DT's tutorials as a guide. And remember, we're looking for some guest designers who will each get a 2 month stint and have images to play with along the way, so please link up (adding GDT after your name)
Go on... You know you wanna! ;)

You can link up at any of the blogs on the hop list, or just link up on the main From the Heart Stamps blog when you've made your entry, good luck!
