Default WT253 - Where's the Birdie (01/14/10)

Anyone up for a fun challenge today? I love birds and they are such a big trend right now that I thought it would be fun to see what you do with them. Today, whether you stamp an owl, cover a chipboard bird, die cut an eagle or create a bird shaped card, find ways to use birds in your design. Feel free to make altered projects and layouts as well as cards. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Please remember to put WT253 in your keyword section and post a link back here so that we can all see your work. Please link only newly uploaded creations for this challenge. We want to get you creating!

My sample: Sing for Spring

WT253 Gallery Submissions

(please note that depending on the gallery speed, it may take a little time for your project to show up at the above link)

Thanks for playing along!

Julia

Just in from work and sweeping the back yard. Maybe this will encourage me to use some little Maya Road sheers One4Joy sent me. Whatever, birds are ALWAYS fun - thanks for this, Julia.

Not only the birdies are trendy, but they're simply ce-ute, no?
I've got a feeling that I'll be coming back here with a few more cards in the near future... but for now here's my Funky bird card.
Thank you for a great theme Julia, TFL!

It's been one of those busy weeks for me and not able to play in the challenges, but I wanted to play today before I head off to school.

Here is Happy Birthday Birdie.

Thanks for the fun challenge today Julia. I may have to do more than one card, as I recently got some new bird stamps!

Here is my first one - Blue Bird.

Thanks for looking.
