Crazy Bird Snippets

Hi everyone, I'm just popping by with a snippets make so that I can head over to the Playground and see what the Playmates are up to and see if there are any mince pies left.

This card is made entirely from snippets of paper and card.... I cut the bottom of the papers to turn them into banners, cut the sentiment with a Tattered Lace die and the stars with Xcut dies. The Tim Holtz crazy bird is coloured with Promarkers with a touch of Sakura clear glaze pen then cut with the matching die and a googly eye added. I hand cut his hat and used glitter pens to add the dots, and to finish it all off I added some card candi.

The colours look a bit washed out in the photo and IRL it's a lot more cheerful (but it may just be my laptop screen)

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'

Passion For Promarkers challenge 'use your dies / punches'

Sparkles Monthly challenge 'happy birthday'

Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge 'anthing goes'

Thanks for taking the time to pop by today and for all your lovely comments.... and don't forget you've got until the 31st December before the Playground gates shut.


  1. Nope - sorry Andrea - all the mince pies were finished off by Parsnip. There's still a few praline chocolates left though, and some Babycham.

    Lovely bright and cheerful card.

    Wishing you a VERY Happy New Year. Hope 2017 is a good one for you.

    Thanks for all your support on my blog.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx
