Back from vacation with some crazy bird love!

So, we are back from our "unplugged" week in the mountains... and it couldn't have been a better vacation!  I love my husband so much and spending a week away with him, in the beautiful Colorado mountains during the fall was heaven.  I came back refreshed and rejuvenated!

I also came back to a desire to create... and first to have fun with was the Tim Holtz Crazy Bird stamps that had just come in the mail before I left.

I kept this one simple, wanting to use the water colored background to set them off.  I colored the birds with distress inks, then found a simple sentiment to add.  A little doodled borders and all done!  Simple but fun!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Through the Craft Room Door - anything goes
Craft Your Passion - anything goes
Chocolate Coffee & Cards - animals\

Thanks for stopping in today!
