I just loved this sketch

I just loved this simple sketch and so had to play along. I recently purchased these pre coloured stamps 
two peas in a bucket and this was the perfect sketch on which to use them. I placed the three stamps in a row, added the sentiment, a word in each image. I stamped the chipboard bird black and stuck to the card using self adhesive dimensional foam to add. I see this sketch becoming a favourite and I am sure I will use it again.

Today was my RDO and I got a lot done, from cleaning the house to making six box framed pictures to sell at Handmade Canberra. I was very lucky to pick up some box frames yesterday for $2.50 and $3.00, I will be going to stock up on these frames tomorrow, it's very rare to get such a fantastic deal. 

Anyway, tomorrow is my birthday, the first birthday without my dad :(. My dad always looked forward to my birthday and always made it an awesome day for me. I have promised myself I won't cry tomorrow and will enjoy the day with my mum, husband and friends.
