Shout-Out on Time-out Tuesday

I want to give a shout-out today to one of my favorite blogs - if you haven't been here before, you really need to pop by and have a good laugh! Cake Wrecks Yep, it's just as it sounds - all about cakes that have been "decorated" and turned out pretty awful. I guess I find it funny as I used to teach cake decorating and I have certainly seen my share of disasters!!! (oh, and I may have created one or two of them myself! lol) Anyhow, there are some Easter bunny cakes featured there now and they just cracked me up! Be sure to read the captions.

Now for a little artwork, just for the heck of it!



I found this stamp in a clearance sale at Impression Obsession's website and thought it was so darn cute! I stamped the birds on a wire in Memento ink and colored them with Copics, cut them out with the new Nestabilities Labels 3 and mounted on foam tape over some bright blue satin ribbon. Added the adorable paper strips (from Heidi Grace) so it looks like they are hanging over the treetops. Mounted everything on Sorbet cardstock which was paper pieced around the edges and then onto Star Spangled Blue cardstock - both from Close To My Heart.

Thanks for visiting today and have a creative tomorrow!

Wow Mary! This is to stinkin' cute. I love how you made them above the trees. I can't wait to get the new tree stamp set from CTMH. It is to cute!
Great job! I'll get to your sketch tomorrow.

Well I had to check out the cake website. Too funny. It is amazing how many blogs/sites are out there for absolutely every topic. Some of those cakes were too scary.

I love your card. The simplicity of the birds on the wire is perfect.

Oh Mary... I love this!!! Love the stamp... lucky you to find this on clearance! You paired it perfectly with the dp and your layout lets both really shine!!! Great job!

Wow, Mary, those birds are fantastic! I love how they're "hanging out" over the tree-tops too - way cute! And I've seen a few of those cake disasters at that website - you're right, it's a good laugh!

Cake Wrecks is just a riot! I visited there a few months ago but I had not been back! I bet I can make people laugh with my card wrecks! :)

I love this bird stamp! I had a horrible thought...based on the cake wreck implication...make a card using this stamp and have the bird pooping on the ground below. You can say on the inside "having a crappy day?" It will go with your power line/tree story above! HA!
