Here's the little guys just grooving around my art journal - Soft Suede and Kraft (the light brown colour) are my colours of the moment. Loving them!
By the way, Kraft is getting renamed soon - it's going to be Crumb Cake. A much more alliterative Stampin' Up name! And it's getting promoted to a full colour, not just an also-ran. So it gets a stamp pad, and a marker, the whole treatment - yay!
But here's what I really wanted to show off - alternative birds! You'd know when these guys land on your shoulder - CHIRP!
That's just a circle punch making the body, of course, and a Stampin' Write journalling marker for the little details.

Here's some stuff I laboriously cut and pasted from the Stampin' Up web site...

A little free time ... why don't I post a few photos of fabulous swaps I got at the recent Stampin' Up convention?
Here's one I really admired : by Jane Norrish, it's a terrific little box (containing a packet of tissues, very handy). The box is made of Kraft coloured card (which is getting a rename soon, so Crumb Cake - a much more Stampin' Up name!). The stamps are all from the pretty Pendant Park stamp set, which is in the current mini catalogue. And wow, I think they must have had Jane's box idea in mind when they put the set together, because it all works so very well! The stamp set is a very reasonable $27.95 if you get it in clear mounted (or you can have wood mounted for a little more).
Now let's have a look at something made by Carolyn Bennie (who, amongst other things, was pushing a pram at convention - that's a busy lady). She had made heaps of sets of earrings! Yes, actual earrings! Check HER blog for a bit of info about how she made them - the Tiny Tag punch was instrumental, of course.
