The eyes have it ......

Hi there .... it's me again!

I've just got time for another quick post before I have to get the dinner on.  It's chilli tonight .... one of hubby's favourites ..... and after the day I've had I think a nice bottle of red will go down just fine with it!!

It's my favourite One Layer Week over at Less is More ..... and there's a title to this weeks challenge

I'm sorry .... but there was only one set of stamps I could go for ...... plus they were already out on my desk (actually they've never been put away since they arrived in the old craft room!) .......

I think you either love them or you hate them ....... me I can't get enough of these little guys (and gals!) Can't wait until I get my Crazy Things stamp set to go with them .... I believe it's on it's way!! 

I stamped the Crazy Bird with black Archival ink and then coloured him using my Distress Markers and a touch of water.  His eyes have had the Glossy Accents treatment although you can't really tell from the photo (hope that still counts as one layer ...... oops!!)

And to finish off ..... a suitable sentiment and a few tiny ink splashes

One Layer Card ..... done!  and on the first attempt too ........ surprisingly!!

Oh well .... must dash, otherwise the dinner will never be ready.  Once all that's on I can sit and enjoy the sunshine!  But before I go .... I'd like to say Hello and Welcome to our latest follower  ....... I've spotted you up there Denise! Thank you for spending time here ..... it's nice to have you along.

Thanks for popping by (again!) ...... enjoy the rest of your day.

Cheerio until next time



  1. Love you image and card Linda !

  2. Gotta love these crazy birds!

  3. I love the crazy birds too Linda, love what you did with this little guy! Hugs, Anne xx

  4. Linda, these crazy birds are a hoot! Just collected our mail from the neighbor who picked it up for us, while we were away, and there were my Crazy Bird dies. It was so hard to not buy them at Stampaway, but I knew I had them ordered. I'm really liking what you did with this particular guy, the coloring is fantastic. Cute phrase to go with his goofy looks! Well done on the one layer. TFS

  5. I love the crazy birds, although I haven't succumbed yet. It's a great card and a perfect sentiment.

  11. Super card and your colouring is wonderful. Minimal embellies are allowed so glossy accents is fine (I used it on two of my OLCs!) Can't wait to see what you create with your new set when it arrives too!
    Thanks for sharing with us.
