OK - early Christmas, or late Birthday or a just because gift from me to me. I have had my eye on these Crazy Birds from Tim Holtz for quite a while and just didn't know if I would use them enough to justify buying them. Well....after thinking about it for about 2 minutes the other day while on a shopping trip with a bestie I decided I would use them. Oh my they are so much fun to play with, I watercolored this little guy with distress markers, punched the thought bubble and embossed thinking of you in gold. Mounted it on an embossed cloud layer. I think I am going to get a lot of mileage out of this set. Only problem is now I want the accessories that go with these funny characters.
