So, I REALLY don't care for that feeling you get when you realize you need a birthday card yesterday, and there is just no time available to make one.
What usually happens in this instance is, I end up sending some old card from my stash that I made AGES ago, and, too often, I have to see just how much I don't like my old stuff.
So, in order to avoid that lousy feeling, my thing for 2016 is PREPARATION. I am doing LOTS of cards, multiples when I can, and really building my stash. I will continue to make one as I want/need one when I can, but having something to rely on in a pinch will be a HUGE load off my mind.
To that end, I made this--
I love those birds by Tim Holtz. I just get so tickled by those facial expressions.
I colored the bird and gift with colored pencils, and I coated the bird's eyeballs and beak with Glossy Accents. Shiny is good..
Pretty simple card, really, but it certainly fits the bill for a handy birthday card, suitable for anybody.
So, I made four of them!
Ooooooh, yeah, that would probably suck. I will have to ponder how to avoid that issue...
At any rate, I am off and running with my stash, and there's many more ahead.
I'm entering this card at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
