Oh, those Crazy Crazy Birds!

Firstly....before I share a card....
I'd like to say THANK YOU to everyone who visited and/or purchased cards yesterday...during the Grand Re-opening of the Bellissima Card Shop (at ETSY .com)
Your support, enthusiasm and ALL of the kind compliments about my cards filled my heart!
I look very forward to bringing many many many more cards to the Card Shop on a regular stay tuned..and be sure to check in at the Card Shop often, to see new additions!, now...onto today card....

Well, I am about...oh I don't know....maybe 8 months behind everyone else with inking up my Crazy Birds stamps...
Yes, I purchased the set..the dies...the accessories..
the sayings...
I've had all of them.
Sitting here.
Since each one first came out.
Yep...Just sitting here.

I also broke out some brand new...never used
Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils
My critique of the pencils?
I like them.
Not quite AS much as my Prismacolor pencils
But it's a close contest between the two...I have to say that.
There is a definite difference in how the color gets laid down in comparing one to the other..
The Spectrums feel a bit waxier (?)...I think that's a good way to describe them.
I, like them though.
So that's a good thing.
...and the colors are beautiful...
and...nicely separated into 5 specific color palettes
Nature, Primaries, Essentials, Marine, Floral
(I'll post a photo in the supply list the end of this blog post)

All of the being's time for those Crazy Birds....
(for those of you who are not card makers/stampers....Yes...
these little guys with bulging eyes, exaggerated beaks and expressive faces 
are actually called ....Crazy Birds.

So.... here are 2 of the Crazy Birds that I enjoyed working with 
and coloring with the Spectrums.
*and, although it's not showing in the photos...
 there's a little bit of Wink of Stella no the ribbon and bow on the gift...and on the birthday hats.
I usually create in multiples...
but this time...this is a one of a kind...
(and it is being sent off to my Etsy Shop  and will be available for sale momentarily)
oh...I almost forgot to mention......there's a simple Happy Birthday sentiment stamped on the inside.

These 2 crack me up...
Just look at their expressions...
How can you not smile....
and wonder about what they are up to.
