Happy Birthday Z-card

I am enjoying trying new card folds that allow a card to stand up and still fit in a normal card envelope. This one meets the test.

This is a set of Inkadinkado clear stamps and I stamped on laser photo paper using Jet Black Stazon ink. I had to add some bling, though.

Tim Holtz Meets Quietfire Design

It has been a lo-o-o-o-o-o-ng while since I have been able to do anything creative due to an incredibly busy work season. However, a week or so ago I made something that brought me a lot of joy, simply because it was made without any preconceived notion as to where I was going with it. This collage wall hanging was the result:

The crow and the music and the lovely scripted Corvidae are from the Crows Unmounted rubber stamp plate from Quietfire Design. The bird cage and flower die cuts are Tim Holtz Alteration dies by Sizzix.

Lately the only thing I have had time to do is make a card here or there as needed (thank yous for staff, mainly) or responses to a challenge if time allows. This was pure joy as I just sat and played without expectation or urgency, and when it was all done, I suddenly knew EXACTLY who was going to receive it. It was just perfect. Love when that happens.
