Crazy Bird card and other crafty 'stuff '.

Good afternoon friends, just popping by to share more
crafty makes again. First I have another card for
 the 'Less is More' challenge.
 It's a recipe this week and 'One or More Balloons'.
 I decided to use my crazy bird stamp as I just love
 these birds. 
My next photo after the card ones is a sneaky peek
 at my OH's next model house he has made.
 Not yet painted, but will be soon...I hope...he has
 already started on another house lol. 
The last photo is a pair of earrings I have finished
after months in my jewellery tray half made. My
SIL wanted a pair of earrings (darn I forgot to take
 a photo too). Had to get all my jewellery making 
stuff out. 
Anyway I have decided to make a few new jewellery
 bits to add to my website and also give it a bit of a
make over this year too. 
I will be mostly using expensive hand made Lampwork
beads and some more hand made/dyed silk ribbons again 
I think also. My tastes have become more discerning as
time has gone on alas. I will show you what I am making
as I do things.
Link at the top to see my older stuff and website if you
 are nosey ;)

That's all today I think, enjoy your day ;)

OMG Viv that bird is a hoot! Keep thinking I should get that set, did you invest in the dies as well? Lovely to see your jewellery again, those earrings are beautiful!. I think you may be going to set up a model village soon, the detail is fantastic.

I do like your bird and the fun saying! I love the way you blended the green head and blue body. I would love to try something like that.

I don't know anything about model houses, but that one looks very detailed! Your earrings are incredible! Except that I often lose on of the pair of earrings, that is sometimes the reason I go for less expensive ones. But the beads are pretty!

Viv said...

Thaks Val, no I just got the stamps.Yes soo many model houses now lol ;)

What a fun card!

Brilliant! You can't go wrong with a crazy bird Viv! Fabulous colouring - really love how you have done his eyes. Kinda looks like he's scared to open his beak in case the balloon flies off haha! That sentiment is absolutely wonderful too! Perfect for the card. Thanks so much for sharing this extra one with us at Less is More this week xx

Esther said...

Awwww Viv, is there no end to your talents?! Firstly, what a gorgeous, fun card! I love the sentiment (SO true!) and the funny expression on the bird's face... yup, that's exactly how people look when they don't know what to do with themselves! Your earrings are absolutely gorgeous, really really beautiful. And your OH is obviously just as talented because the model house is fantastic even before painting! Love it! Thanks so much for playing with us at Less is More :)

Great to see the crazy bird with a balloon! Somehow it fits so naturally. And beautiful elegant earrings; I almost wish I could wear them (my ears are still unpieced...) Hugs, Gerrina

Viv said...

Thanks Christine!...I get my beads from several amazing lampwork ladies, just seen one bead for £28 ...oh my!they are soo talented at glass blowing though ;)

Viv said...

Thanks Sandy!...ee no we don;t share a craft room, he is far too messy with things he makes, painting, woodworking, sanding etc. I just make 'clean' things, so it wouldn't work lol. But he does have a triple garage, several tables in our sunlounge and uses our dining room table in the winter too ;)

Wow aren't those earrings beautiful, wonderful colours. Love your card, I have these birds and haven't used them, Isn't that disgusting. Your sentiment is so cool, love it.
