I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

It's always a happy day when you discover something you forgot you had, and it's a phenomenal day when you immediately use that long-stashed item. That's what happened with this lovely mini Spring Flowers kit I received from Alpha Stamps. The background papers are all Alpha Stamps, and I scrounged a little deeper in the paper bin and found some bird images. That was combined with a nest, vintage toothpick fan, wire, trim, paperclay eggs, and two wooden bits to make a pretty altered tin.

I love this, especially the wiry wings and the way you attached them on the back.

Birds are so beautiful and you really did them justice here! I love the wings, too. And look at all those tiny seed beads you glued around the edge!  Smiley

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

This is incredible! Did you fashion those wings yourself? Very cool. And I'm really in love with the colors you used. That pink and turquoise are beautiful together.

The toothpick fan is my favorite thing!  It set up your entire color scheme!  Love all the different elements and tiny things: beads, a bit of tulle, the eggs, the trim...lovely work
