Take a Word "Bird Life"

Birdlife is the theme at TAW this week. Today I went to a paper craft fair and bought a load of new stamps. This was a great opportunity to use them. I made two cards each featuring a bird on them somewhere. The main stamps are from La Blanche, I had never seen these before and I totally fell in love with them. Other stamps used are from a new plate by Paper Artsy.



Finally a little card to fit in an altoid tin made for a swap. The theme was Owls.



Can you tell I love birds??

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
