Crazy Bird and an Easter Bunny !

I needed a birthday card for a male and as I'd left it until last minute I also needed to make it quick to get it posted off. So as I was sat with my mind a complete blank wondering where on earth my Mojo was hiding, one of those Tim Holtz 'Crazy birds' flew by and landed on the table. I'd already stamped and coloured it with Promarkers before cutting with the matching die so all I needed to do was raid the snippet box of pieces of Core'dinations cardstock for die-cutting the Memory Box 'happy birthday' and hand cut some balloons. I tied some baker's twine around the balloons and attached them and the bird to the card with some sticky pads. Finally I gave the bird a pair of googly eyes.




I shall enter this in the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Allsorts challenge 'wings'
Penny Black and More challenge 'feature a creature'
Stamping Smiles Designs challenge 'tic-tac-toe' (celebrate / clean and simple / critters)




Before I go I'd like to show you the photo my daughter sent me of her little easter bunny... you can't help but laugh and definitely one for the Granny album don't you think?


The sun keeps popping out here so fingers crossed for a dry day. We're off to spend a bit of time with Dad then I'll be round to visit you later.

Love your card....very clever thinking.....now if that were me I would still be sat there thinking...but your little Easter bunny is so adorable...I am so sure her and Thomas will be head over heels in a few years !! lol. Glad you are getting pictures and video clips like me...they seem to make it all seem so much more real somehow. Seems ages since my cuddle and I long for another so I know you must be desperate to hold your little treasure...that photo will no doubt be shown to all her future beaus!!
