Scribbly Bird Christmas

Like a lot of people I'm so frustrated that I can't get hold of the Crazy Bird stamps! today a very kind friend has lent me the Dina Wakley scribbly birds to play with and what do I do ?  make a a Christmas card, this is my third Christmas card this year , not keeping my resolution to make one a week let alone one a month, after I'd coloured and cut out the bird I had a rummage around in a box full of odds and ends left over from last years Christmas card making frenzy and found the embossed background and the die cut holly, the merry Christmas was also already stamped on a bit of scrap card. Tomorrow, hopefully I will be a bit more adventurous with the stamps.I would like to enter this into

March Rudolph Days - anything goes as long as its Christmas


Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge - anything goes as long as its Christmas



  1. So glad your friend had this stamp as you have made such a pretty card with it!
    Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge

  2. Sooooo cute! I love the crazy birds, too, but you can't go wrong with Dina.

  3. Liebe Joan, das ist eine süße Weihnachtskarte.
    Und ich habe auch schon ein paar gearbeitet.
    Ich liebe DIESE fetten Vögel auch, aber du hast recht. Ich warte auch schon seit Wochen auf die Crazy Birds, schaue täglich nach, ob sie irgendwo zu finden sind.
    Ich bin auch sehr frustriert :-(
    Aber man hat mir zugesichert, dass ich sie wahrscheinlich nächste Woche endlich bekomme.
    Mal abwarten... und hoffen...
    Ich wünsche dir einen schönen Tag.

    Herzlichst Sophie
