Happy 39th!

Good afternoon my lovelies!

Well today is a dull and windy day here in Norfolk. There is a full carpet of leaves on the lawn now and the chickens are having a field day scratching through them all.

Because I haven't been around for a while, I never got to show you the birthday card I did for my mum. She was 70 this year and as the Bird Crazy stamp set by Tim Holtz is one of my all time faves, I decided to make her a card featuring one of these adorably funny birds.

Items needed...

Stamps: Bird Crazy by Tim Holtz (CMS212) - Stampers Anonymous
Card stock: white
Ink pad: Tuxedo Black - Memento
Promarkers:  Cerise, Ice Grey 1, Magenta, Orange, Purple
Baker's twine: aqua, pink, purple

With the help of my laptop and Word, I created the speech bubble and text.

Mum was so pleased with it, she thought it was great :o)

This stamp set by Tim Holtz is taking the world by storm. Everyone wants it. There is also a matching die set that goes with it to make cutting the little fluffy critters easy to cut out.

I hope you like my little card. Thanks for popping by! TTFN! xx
