Coffee of the Day - Toffee Nut Cream
Happy Labor Day to my friends here in the States! enjoy your day off from work! wooo hooo to that! :) and a Happy Monday to all of my friends from everywhere else around the world!!!
We have been having such a great time visiting with Tyler's friend this weekend, I haven't been able to get into my craft room as I had originally thought. so I'll share yet another of the cards I had previously made...
You might have seen these hysterical Tim Holtz Crazy Birds in some places around bloggyland. I would one day love to have the entire set plus their cutey accessories, but for now I am ever so happy to have this one stamp. he gives me the giggles every time I see him! :)
The wonderful sentiment stamp is by Woodware and dictated the odd size of the card. it is a really big stamp! I used my watercolors to highlight each word. the patterned paper is Basic Grey Persimmon, flower is Prima, and brown satin ribbon is May Arts. buttons are from my stash. the one beside the bird is tied with SU! linen thread.
this is a bit of a different style for me, but it was perfect to send off with Ryan as he headed back to school in Indiana. the large size gave all of us plenty of room on the inside to add our special words of encouragement and love for him!!!
