Challenge # 50 - For the Birds

Hey crafty chicks, we want to see you strut your tail feathers.

BIRD is the word this week.

Let's get fowl with each other.

Take a flying leap!
(into the great unknown, we're not being rude to our loyal followers)

Ruffle some feathers

Take inpiration in whatever comes to your mind regarding birds.

Feathers, flight, birdcages, heck, even worms.
If you can relate it to a bird, it's fair game.


Rosemary here - As we discussed this challenge theme I thought, birds of a feather, bird-brained, bye bye birdie, and so on and then looked around and saw a Stampin Up catalog with a cute little "Home Tweet Home" card in it and I thougtht - YES.

I need something simple and pretty for my kitchen to inspire me as I stand there washing dirty pans and gazing out into my backyard at the deer eating all my stuff....something that is kind of whimsical and fun but something I won't feel bad about disposing of when I grow bored of it. (Well, don't I sound like Miss High and Mighty - take it away and bring me another lover - if you watch AbFab then you know of whence I speak, otherwise, you just think I'm weird - and I can live with that - LOL)

I give you my take on Home Tweet Home. Oh, and the one bird got lonely so I made a little accent to go along with her. They are happy now, entrapped in glass to amuse me as I do domestic chores! I'll put details (if you really want to know how I made them over on my personal blog) And it's perfect for the kitchen sink because it has everything BUT the kitchen sink included! (LOL)


Jana here: I decided that I have been far too serious lately, so I have let my imagination out of the coop. I'm learning more and more each day about how to use PSE7, and so, I made a digital tribute to you all. Please enjoy.

(Please click on the image to get to the details.)

(Jana owes Rosemary a new monitor for coffee damage from laughing out

loud while drinking said coffee - I'm just sayin')

Spread your wings and fly with us this week...

A recap of all the fantastic entries from Challenge #49 is coming!

OMG Jana, speaking of needing a new monitor! You are the digital queen! and Rosemary, if I had one of your creations to gaze upon, I wouldn't mind so much doing dishes!
You two are awesome!

Electra said...

Hah! I'm back already with my contribution. (Even I can't believe it) This was fun, but now I need to get dressed and get back to real life. Thanks for the inspiration ladies! here it is

Chat Noir said...

LOVE the image... want it, want it, want it. Can I put it on my blog (with suitable link back, homage, bowing and scrapping etc etc etc...???). Please please please????

Going away to calm down now and think about birds...

Carol Hurlock said...

Oh my gosh, you guys are so funny. Wish we could all hang out together IRL and laugh until our sides ache. So fun and creative. Thanks for the smile!!!

Bear Hugs,
Carol :o}

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

Well, Rosemary, I love the "Home Tweet Home" piece, and Jana's PSE piece made me LOL.

So glad you visited my blog as it led me back to yours. And with great timing's my little bird contribution:

Thanks for visiting!

Chat Noir said...

Thought so long I missed the deadline, and then it got so minimalist that you really have to squint to see the bird!! Well, my heart was in the right place.....
