Miss You...!

Hi everyone, I'm feeling a little like this crazy bird!
I hope you are all safe and well. Some restrictions are being eased a little here in NSW so that will help my mood.

The challenge at Simon Says Stamp is to create anything but a card.
I had fun with two hole punches getting this tag hole done, then I inlaid the black circle, whew!
I drew eyelids onto the bird as I think it makes him look more pensive.

I'm also linking up to Watercooler Wednesday,

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday where it's also anything goes,

Addicted to Stamps & More, the bird was coloured with Inktense pencils and a water brush.

Cards 4 Guyz, use dies as the main feature, 
I used tag dies and the bird crazy die to cut the bird out.

These birds seem so appropriate for how many of us are feeling right now. I love the black adding to the drama he's feeling, fab design Cathy and hopefully soon we can all get back to some form of normality... stay safe x

This is a perfect image for a Miss You card! That's just how I feel. Thanks so much for sharing the Tim Holtz link. I looked for it and he does so many, I couldn't pinpoint which one it was.
