Happy Bird-day

Good morning to you all and for those in the UK I hope you're enjoying the extended bank holiday weekend.

I've got a birthday card to show you today featuring a party hosted by those Crazy Birds from Tim Holtz which were stamped and cut from snippets of cards and coloured with Promarkers. I went over the eyes with a Sakura glaze pen but unfortunately you can't see it in the photo. I was going to give them all googly eyes but I thought it may end up looking like someone had filled the bird bath with alcohol rather than water! More snippets were used for the floor and Paper Smooches balloon dies and after sticking everything to the card with glue dots I finished it off with a computer generated sentiment.


I shall enter this in the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'

Time Out challenge 'playful'

Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'happy birthday'

Cute Card Thursday challenge 'anything goes'

and here's a brand new challenge blog
AAA Birthday challenge 'anything birthday goes'


That's it from me for now...... I've got a busy day ahead and I'm also on the hunt down for Mojo to help me finish a little project I'm in the middle of making for my granddaughter. Thanks for popping by and also for taking the time to leave a comment so I know you've been to call.
