Art 'n Soul's Inspiration Station this month features the Stamp Set "Bird Crazy" from Stamper's Anonymous' Tim Holtz Collection.

"Bird Crazy" Tim Holtz Collection

We have these sets available now. However, as the Inspiration Station continues into the month and these wonderful, witty cards are discovered, the supply we have will run out. Just sayin' . . .

I said I would post the "fantabulous" card that Marj created using all 6 Crazy Birds. You really need to make it a priority to stop into Art 'n Soul and see it in person . . . it's just the best! This is a zee-fold card; I wasn't able to photograph all of the panels together; so, as you look at each adorable panel, please remember this is all one zee-fold out card.

I didn't have full information but I'm pretty sure the coloring was achieved with Copic Markers. The word markers and the Crazy Birds are perfect together . . . I just wanna know where she found those feathers which are amazing accessories on each panel. And, of course, Marj has accessorized each feather with her 'famous' teeny-tiny ribbon bows. Like I've suggested, you MUST come in to see this piece of magic!

I apparently put the incorrect information for Pam's card last night, so I am reposting again here. The photo I took of the inside of the card, where the information is, somehow didn't make it to the Photo Library and I tried to match it up the best I could. Not!
