Love this Crazy Bird!

Good Morning and thank you for your visit.

Today I'd like to say a big warm welcome to Susan and Karen and thank you both for joining me here.

I'm afraid I can't find you Susan so if you'd leave me a comment I will be able to visit you too.  But do pay Karen a visit and see the lovely work she does.

Well a few days ago my Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamps and dies finally arrived.  I've hardly had time for a proper play but made a couple of similar cards, also using another new set of Tim Holtz  dies, one of which I used on the top right.  The paper I've used behind the distressed diamonds is a bronzey metallic.

This is my favourite of the birds at the moment.  I can't decided whether he's scary or alarmed! Probably just whatever we want him to be.

Anyway this was just a quick card so I could have a play but I'm sure I will get more adventurous with these funny little guys.

Happy Crafting Everyone!
