Appreciate What Is

Hello friends - it is Sunday evening here but it has felt like Monday all day to me - funny how that happens - I am not sure why - do you know what I mean - or is it just me!?!

I could not resist creating a card using the Bird Crazy Stamps by Tim Holtz - just quietly - I am looking forward to getting my hands on the Cat Crazy stamps too - there is something so appealing about them and I know I am not the only one.

My patterned paper has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Labels Forty Etched Dies.  The Cosmo Cricket paper has then been randomly sponged using Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko yellow ink and daubers, followed by pink and orange.  Postmarks have been added using Memento Espresso Truffle Ink,  The white drips are from the irRESISTIBLEs Embellisher in Memento Luxe Wedding Dress.

The Bird Crazy image has been coloured using Memento Inks and Sponge Daubers - I love that technique!  My sentiment is from Hero Arts,
