I just love this cute dude from TAWS and my snowflake embossing folder

animals :)

Hej y’all 🙂 we’d love to see some cute animals over at Bastel-Traum this month – hop over to play along and be eligible to win the prize 🙂
I used a cute birdie from The Alley Way Stamps – I also purchased the matching SVG files – I think it’s super awesome that they offer that! If they would be dies I wouldn’t have bought them, but svgs are always a good idea and not as pricy AND they don’t need a separate drawer in the craft room (I didn’t have enough space anyways) 😀 if you don’t know what to do with those stamps hop over to the TAWS Blog or Pinterest to check out their inspirational work 🙂
Happy Crafting Y’All :))

MilkCoffee:  add stripes
Eureka Stamps: things with wings
Ruby’s Rainbow: for the birds
As You Like It: favorite 2 embellishments –> I love using pearls and twine on my projects because they come in so many colors and both make the those handcrafted projects so unique. They add a little bit to a card for instance but most of the times you can’t go overboard with them, and that’s what I love 🙂

you’re one of a kind

.. I thought of someone special while creating this card, not because he’s a “komischer Vogel” but because he really is one of a kind 😉 
I created this card using this color combo by Design Seeds – hop over to our current Creative Friday challenge to play along using this awesome color scheme 🙂
I made this card using TAWS Bird Brain stamps and SVGs 🙂 just love the idea of not using scissors – but hey, I still cut myself while changing the blade and the sketch pen LOL – I guess that’s a first lol
Please don’t forget to hop over to our Challenge Blog to check out the awesome creations of the DT 🙂
Happy Weekend Y’All 🙂
