Oh Sweet Bird of Youth


Well the mojo is back, not totally I made a couple of cards this weekend but mostly I made a bunch of card bases, did not feel like stamping just wanted to put sketches and papers together, might regret that later when I pull out the stamps and find out they don't fit but could also get me to think outside the box and try something different.

My niece's stepfather is turning 60 and we are all invited to his surprise party, I love these long legged birds, even though I can't remember the manufacturer, and wanted to see if I could use them on a man's card. I think it came out OK for a man. I paper pieced the bird and also his wing and used some of those wonderful Michael's dew drops. I also stamped the small bird on the inside of the card and paper pieced him also.


Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
