Gone to the Dogs - and Birds


I know y'all thought you'd finally gotten rid of me......but I'm back (somewhat).  I won't be around every day but will do what I can, when I can.

Seems like everyone was born in September, October, and November in our family so lots of birthday cards need to be made.  I'm keeping them super simple and finally able to get a few done.  The first one, using those Crazy Birds from Tim Holtz is for my brother - who considers himself a birdwatcher.  He likes to sit in the comfort of his home and look out the window at the birds!  LOL!  On the second card I used a stamp set from Newton's Nook (Touchdown Tails).  This will be for one of the grandsons.  Like I said - super simple.

Thanks for stopping by......and I'll get by your blog soon.

Isn't that how you watch birds? LOL, I'd lots rather sit in the comfort on my home and watch! He'll love that crazy bird. And a cute little pup! Glad you've had time to create. (And you don't have to return the comment. Go make a card instead. OK?)

Hi Lynn! Happened to stop by today (sorry I'm so BAD about visiting everyone's blog) and I love these two cards! The birthday party bird is hilarious and I need to check out Newton's Nook for sure! That's a new one to me.

Oh these both made me smile real large..lucky you to have the accessories to dress this goofy bird up so cute. (Everyone is OOstock with this set it seems). Also loved that ferocious guard dog too. Great coloring on this little fella. I'm a bird watcher of the same type as your BIL....TFS & Hugs

These are both adorable, Lynn! Glad you found some me-time to get some cards made. I like CAS cards. The crazy bird is so funny and so is the dog!

Lynn, these two a darling cards. I love the bird and the colors going with him, but I had to say that little "ref" dog and his face is just precious. Both recipients will get a good laugh. It is nice to see you when you have the time and energy. Take care and find time for yourself if you can. Enjoy the day.

Monica said...

Lovely cards, Lynn. Like them both so much.
I would NEVER want to get rid of you, you know that, don't you?

Love,

Glad to see you creating and these are both so cute. Love that angry bird. It's adorable. The grandson will love that bulldog card too.

NanaConnie said...

It's good to see you posting again, Lynn. :-D I love those Crazy Birds and your coloring is fabulous! Great idea to send it to a 'bird watcher.' lol Simple designs have always been your forte and these are no exception. Adorable dog and I think that paper is magnificent.

Anne Temple said...

These are both darling! Love how you've colored the bird and the refereed dog is as cute as can be.

Diane said...

Your crazy bird is just too cute and the bull dog is adorable.

These are all so fun!! I hear you on the real-life stuff keeping you busy - and on the clusters of birthdays! Our cluster is December/January because it's not like the holidays already have us running around.... lol

Lori Kobular said...

Love that Touchdown Tails dog!! He is so cute and I am sure your brother will love his bird card ~ love the look on his face!!

lauren bergold said...

tim & i are EXACTLY the same kind of "bird watchers"; someone should tell him that if you put up a feeder near the window with the chair it's even BETTER!!! ps: if i could color like this i'd stamp soooooo much more! ♥

Lisa said...

Oh my gosh, they are both too darn cute!! I love the bird - you colored it perfectly!! The doggie is so sweet!! I love them both!! Have a great day :)
