Happy Bir'day

I so loved the new bird stamps from Tim Holtz I couldn't wait to get stamping with them, and I invented a new phrase (or I hope I did) Happy Bir'day.

So this card was made whilst I was waiting for them to arrive

and then they arrived, and I played and played

Dont you just love them, so nice to have something different from the normal Tim Holtz stamps.

Oops its been 3 months since I last posted, I really must get my act together. The good news is I'm reducing my working hours in June, ostensibly to look after the house and kids (16 & 21) more, but hey might be able to spare an hour or two for art. (LOL).

Anyway's here's some of what I've been doing, starting with my most recent, Mothers Day Cards for this coming Sunday.


A new home card using JoFY fab new bee stamp set.

A card I made using my newest Stampotique "Relaxin", been meaning to get it for ages, am so pleased to have it at last.

And my valentines card for my OH.

So some of what I've been doing, will post some more this week, I promise LOL.
