Crazy Bird....You're How Old?



Let me just start by saying that I've had a love/hate feeling for

the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy sets that he released last year. 

With that said in a weak moment on Mother's Day I ordered them from 

Joanns.com because they were 40% off and if I ordered them before

midnight on Mother's Day I would get free shipping. Well that

just pushed me over the edge! Okay I'm laughing at myself as I'm writing this. 

Since when has sale prices ever made up my mind about craft supplies? 

It helps of course, but when you got to have it........you know the rest. 


My first card. 

I used the distress crayons to color the bird. 

The panel looks shiny in the post....that is because I used glossy black cardstock. 

I added strips of washi tape. 

The birds are really cool as the framlits cut around the birds and the bird part 

perfectly and without having a border going around them. 


Here is a side view. The eyes, beak, and wings were cut with the

matching framlits, then popped over the bird. Since I got the sets I simply

had to have the crazy talk stamp set that went with it all. 


And just look at all the little accessories in the left photo that goes

with the birds. I think I'm going to have fun "dressing" my birds. Good thing it

isn't Thanksgiving....get it..."dressing" and Thanksgiving. Okay

Its after midnight and I'm trying to write this post and I think I'm getting slap 

happy from lack of sleep. I better go to bed before I order something else!!!!!
