Crazy Birds

HA HA HA OMG I thought this was so funny!   I just love these Crazy Birds!!  They're quite the popular item these days but I think it's just because you can add any sentiment you want to them and VOILA they're done!  Easy and quick to color too.  I  may have been a little too quick for this one as it is a bit simple but not every piece can be a masterpiece I suppose.  LOL!!

I used some new papers from Michele R Designs called "Romantic Shabby Chic", which have inserts and elements available and this banner is from "Elements Pack #1".

And here's my usual bouquet for you but also check out the bow that's in the "Elements Pack #1" as well.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the FREEBIES that Michele offers on her Facebook group.  If you miss it there she always posts it into the store as well.

Happy Birthday Zombie

Quite some time ago I made 2 similar cards but it was for hubby's birthday and my stepson's.  Of course I had to hold off until both birthdays were over before I could share but lucky for me they both love the show Walking Dead.  Guys cards are tough so this was a fun change and they both laughed when they got them so I was happy.  

This image is from Some Odd Girl and called "Kody Zombie".   There was even a tutorial I followed as I'm not exactly use to coloring zombies.  LOL!  I even added some tombstones and labelled RIP using my labeler.  

This is a Tim Holtz tree die cut covered with black acrylic paint then I added some Tim Holtz distress glitter.  YES that stuff makes me able to use GLITTER for a man card.  LOVE IT!!  hee

And here from my stash is a matching glittered bat from Michael's some Tim Holtz skulls.

Ok so like I said, these cards were nothing but fun!!  It was nice to do a Halloween theme other than Halloween just like making xmas cards in July.  Have a great day!

It's helpful to enter challenges at the various scrapbooking forums to get pages done.  Pictures that have been left just sitting in a file and what happens to the next?  That's why I've spent time over the past few weeks sorting all my pictures from the last 10 or so years.  I had them scattered on my laptop, an old computer, some discs and my iPhone.  

Anyway, now I'm just taking radom pictures and adding them to some great digital scrapbook kits made by some amazing designers such as this one by Ooo La La Designs.  The kit is called "Afternoon Stroll" and is full of gorgeous pieces.  

It's funny how we think a picture should be of people always facing us.  As you start on this avenue of crafting you start to look at this a little differently.  Now it seems like everything is a good shot!  LOL!! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Prima Altered Metal Frame

Recently my husband's cousin got married in Mexico so when they came back I wanted to create a keepsake for them.  I waited until I had one of their favorite pics and off I went with my Prima metal frame.  

I have a number of pieces from Southern Ridge Trading Company and this seahorse is the first one.  I just covered this pretty thing with some Glitter Ritz and voila!  Doesn't that look rich?!

Here's some more SRTC chipboard I used.  The starfish is covered with a Tim Holtz dauber and then ... dang... OMG I FORGET.  LOL!  I think it's pearl glass glitter from Finnibair.  ha ha ha so sorry!!  The bird was covered using Inka Gold.  Pretty huh?

Of course I loaded this frame up with tons of gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid and Prima.  Would you expect any less from me?!

The resin hearts and birds nest are from Prima and the shells are from Live and Love Crafts.  

And this big resin piece is also from Prima.  This thing is decked right out with Prima huh?  hee hee  Yup I love me some Prima!!  Don't we all?!!

And last but not least the happy couple....Bryce and Larissa Treadway.  Congrats you two and welcome to the family Larissa!
