That's Crafty! - Birds of a feather

Hi everyone,

Time for another fortnightly challenge over at That's Crafty! challenge blog and the theme this time is: Birds of a feather.

We'd love to see anything bird or indeed feather related, I know I have loads of birdie stamps so it was quite hard picking just a couple ;)

Join in and you could be in with a chance of winning this:

and I know for a fact there's some exciting stuff coming up in the shop that it could be spent on....just saying.....

I made a card for this featuring a little cutie Lost Coast Designs bird stamp, I think there's about 3 different ones to choose from.

Why this fella wants to be a crow I don't know! Don't get me wrong I'm one of the biggest animal lovers you can find BUT I have a mob of these crows that hang around picking on my garden! They've already killed 3 pots of succulents by pulling them all out and now they've started pulling up the weed surprising membrane under the stones on my patio...I think they're bored with nothing else to do :/

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Take it,Make it, Anything Goes

Countryview Challenges, Have fun with circles

Simon says Weds, Things with wings

Gelatos, That's Crafty! Dinky bubbles stencil, Zig clean colour pens, Stamps are: Lost coast Designs, Katzelkraft and Carabelle.

Hope you like it

  1. Oh I do like that stamp, not seen that one! Great card Donna and wonderful words too. Xx

  2. This is gorgeous Donna and love that cheeky looking bird.
    Sorry to hear about your crow issues, we have them too but it's just noisy battles with the seagulls here :D

  3. I think this cute bird should stay like he is now, much more attractieve than a crow! Lovely card, Donna! And hope those crows will find something else to do soon :(

  4. Fab card love the colours.

  5. A wonderful sentiment, Donna! I'm trying to figure out who wants to be who. I imagine both want to be the other. I want to be normal. I wish I was different and stood out in a crowd (of birds). The "stand out" sure is a delightfully looking guy/gal. Cute piece!

  6. Oh I love that little bird, he is adorable. Super inky card.

  7. Love your card Donna, the little bird in the corner is so cute!
    I am always in awe of your ability to choose a colour palette for every picture that is exactly right.

  8. This such a pretty card Donna love it xx

  9. The colors of the background are gorgeous! Beautiful pairing of the images! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Things with Wings” Challenge! Well done!

  10. Love this Donna - your quirky bird and quote made me chuckle.
    Funnily enough... well not so much funny but, last week we had a
    Magpie pulling up the weed membrane under stones too. Need to operate on it
    now to tidy it up when the weathers cooler.
    have a lovely day

  12. What a great ideas for your little buddy to be wishing for a different life smashing make

  13. Love your whimsical little birdy...he is so adorable. Isn't that always the way, everyone seems to want to be something or somebody other than who they are..or is that just youth? Well done! Love this illustration so much!

    Hugs Giggles
