Crazy Bird!

Hello there.  It's so nice to see you again.

Well, I was soooo busy yesterday that I didn't get round to any commenting. :-(
However, normal service will be resumed today so I'll be popping over to see some of your cards and leave a little love. :-D


I've been naughty!
 Don't tell my OH.

Somehow a whole lotta crazy bird stuff toppled, sidled, fell, leaped, nay Jumped with a capital 'J'
(off the springboard with a double twist with a half pike)
 into my online shopping basket whilst browsing a website.

Then, believe it or not, my debit card took it on itself to make the payment and add my address too.

How very, very cheeky!!! ;-) (Grins)

Actually I've been dying to try out these crazy bird stamps ever since they arrived in a parcel from the UK. I absolutely love them. 

 At the moment I'm trying to think up some really funny sayings to pair with the images...if you have any I'd be eternally grateful if you left a comment with them. These images are crying out for cheeky sayings, aren't they?

So, today's card is being entered into 2 challenges:

CAS Colours and sketches #160 who gave us this sketch (Hope you are okay with me taking the liberty of adding the birdie in the background)


Also Happy Little Stampers - Who are running a birthday celebration on their Facebook page so the theme is Birthdays

Items used:
Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamps & thinlits dies
Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Crazy Things stamps & thinlits dies

See....I did say a whole lotta crazy bird stuff...!

Ssssshhh again!

Crazy cats and mini crazy birds are on their way too!! Yikes!
Hmm...you can see that the balloon strings have been hand drawn there. oops!

Well, that's all from me for today.
Thanks so much for popping by,
Sharon xx

Love the colouring of your images and the raised sentiment. I'm not really any good at 'funny sayings' but thanks for joining us at CC&S this week with your 'crazy' design and for commenting on my blog. Stef x
