Default Tim Holtz pick

If you could choose only one of Tim's crazy Birds, or Dogs or Cats, which would be the most versatile for all occasion cards.

I know they have been out for some time, I just could not decide.

Not sure if it matters, but I do not use copics only prisma pencils, so I am not sure if this would eleminate crazy Birds as I mostly see them colored with copics. Thanks for your suggestions.

I think the birds have slightly more open space to color in than the dogs do and I do not own the cats. so, really I have colored them with markers, pencils and or watercolors it really doesn't make much difference to me. ( and pencils are easier for me to get into tight spaces) I guess its just a matter of which ones make you happier to look at and or color.


changing the sentiments is all I do to make them work for what ever...

I only have the birds and don't feel the need (or desire) for the cats and dogs...

Sigh - I only had the birds, too - and then I read this thread and felt the need and desire for the dogs! I already have lots of other crazy cat stamps, so I'm safe there, thank goodness.


I did find the dog stamps on Amazon Prime, and I had some cashback from a credit card, so that made it pretty guilt free.

I have both sets. I use the birds a lot of the time for my sarcastic cards as those birds can say a lot with their expressions. Both are easy to colour with prisma pencils as that is all I use. I also bought the dies so I can put them on design paper and a wobbler so they move and give attitude.
