Smiles for Friday



It's Friday and time to SMILE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very quickly here - Tim Holtz Crazy Bird, accessories for the bird, sentiment from Art Impressions, twine, an old SU texture plate, circle dies, and Kraft paper.  Guess that says it all........or as much as I can say anyway!

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by............

Super cute card, Lynn. Love the look on his face. Not sure if he is happy or sad about the idea of someone having another birthday. Great embossing folder backing him up. Hope you are doing OK down there. You are always in my thoughts.

I just love these TH birds and what you did with it makes me smile in spite of the bird's glum look :) Great embossing along with your wonderful coloring, and I do hope things are improving with the Mr. each and every day!

Wonderful Lynn!! I adore those Crazy Birds and finally got my little paws on the Crazy Things stamp set (err, or should that be sets, one for the toy box too).

Hope Jim is coming along fine and also that you're taking time to look after your own self too.

Hugs

Di said...

Me again! Rolling round here laughing at the sentiment - that bird looks perturbed rather than happy - totally brilliant combination!!

Fabulous coloring, Lynn! I love the stacked layers on your design and the way the blue bird is outside-the-box with his hat. Very creative. Hope things are getting better, or at least, routine by now. :-D Hugz
