Today’s cards (11-13)

Hi guys!

Me again. Big surprise, right?

A couple more cards to share today. Broke my Christmas card binge with a couple non-Christmas cards. Made both of these just for fun.

Both of these use the Baby Birds stamp set and coordinating dies from Paper Smooches. I stamped and cut a bunch of these at a craft night a week or so ago with some of my friends and then came home and colored them over the weekend.

I literally had this whole stack of birds, waiting to go on cards. So I messed around (well, dinked around) and figured out how to arrange all four of them together to fit on one card. The result? Two cards. Kinda fun, right?

One thing I feel to compelled to stay is back when I was a wee cardmaker and scrapbooker, I felt like I always had to color things exactly as they are in the real world. So like the little toucan dude, I would have gone to EXTREME lengths to color him with the proper colors. As I’ve become old and grumpy…. errr… a more experienced crafter…. I’ve gotten away from that and started coloring things with colors that make me happy. It’s kinda freeing to just do your thing and run with it. Anyway…

Alright! That’s what I have for you. I’ll be back again later this week, friends. See you again soon.
