Birds of a Feather.

Birds of a feather stick together!
The theme for the current May calendar challenge at The Craft Barn is Pink and Birds and to use a 'Crafty Individuals' stamp if possible.
I have their CI - 234 bird stamp which I randomly stamped onto a blank sheet of paper (I had already printed the month and year onto) using Memento 'London Fog'. The days of the week is another of their stamps (sorry don't know which one) that I stamped using a pink pigment ink pad and then wrote the days in on the apple part.. The large bird is by T.H. and has been crackle painted and then over stamped with the pink pad and adhered using sticky pads. Feathers are curtesy of the birds on the River Thames.

Also entering this week into the following challenges
Simon Says Stamps: Stamp and show things with wings.
Hooked on Craft: Anything but a card.
Fasionable Stamping: Anything but a card.
Crafty Individuals: Winged things.
