Hoppy Easter from the Crazy Birds


Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I have had a very special guest stay with me. Said special guest, who happens to be my favourite sister (just to make clear, she is also my only sister, so I'm not playing any favourites here), invited me to go to dragged me kicking and screaming to the gym first thing Saturday morning. As I haven't been to the gym in the last month three months I'm not able to move a muscle at the moment. Just sitting down or standing up is agony. Is this what it feels like to get older? Just a simple gym class will render you immobile... Of course the solution would be to go back there regularly, but it just seems like so much work! And cuts off the crafty time, and we wouldn't want that now would we?

Anyhow, we did have some shared crafty time together which was great fun. I made a Easter card which was inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, although I used birds instead of squares. I was also inspired by the colours over at ColourQ. I also think my little birds-disguised-as-bunnies go with the theme of "Laugh" over at CASology, the Spring/Easter theme over at Time Out (where this will be my second entry for the challenge) and the Hoppy Easter theme over at Creative Corner Challenges.


The cute card my Sis made for her friend.

Yep, these crazy birds always make me laugh, especially when all dolled up for Easter! (Your story about the gym made me laugh, too! I'm sore today and I didn't go to a gym yesterday...still trying to figure out what I did that made muscles I didn't even know I had really hurt!) I love the colors you used for these fun birds...thanks for playing along at CASology!
