happy bird-day

Love the Paper Smooches Sparks challenges each and every time! I have challenged myself to join in at least every other week for the next 6 months (I want to do weekly....). I LOVE paper smooches stamps! The Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies stamp was one of the first I bought when Kim opened Paper Smooches - all of her stamps are ADORABLE.

This week is the picture perfect challenge and I LOVED the colors in the picture (and the chevrons). My little bird is paper pieced using some Basic Grey Shine on polka dot paper that I picked up when I was on vacation a couple weeks ago - I wandered 2 craft stores for over an hour each and was in heaven... I really enjoy seeing paper in person before buying, although I have NO problem ordering online either. I have to be ok with online shopping when I live on an island.

We are moving this next summer. I kind of like moving. It forces me to go through my craft supplies (and the rest of the house) and purge. Then I can buy new products (:  I buy all my Paper Smooches (and most of my paper/stamps/accessories) from I Heart Papers (and she will continue to ship to me on the next -even smaller- island we are moving to!)

Stamps: PS Birthday buddies
Ink: Tsukineko
Paper: BG Shine on
Accessories: Queen & Co trendy tape
