This month’s challenge with the Can You Handle the Pressure is Anything Goes with a Twist of Birds.
For my bird, I decided on a flamingo from Taylored Expressions’s Tickled Pink stamp, stencil and die set. My embossing folder is a larger Cuttlebug folder with some swirls, flowers, hearts, birds and a sun. I lightly sponged ink over the raised embossed areas, mounted my flamingo on an action wobbler, layered with black cardstock and adhered to a 5×7 card. Hmmmmm…..so the sun ended up on the bottom of the card so I very carefully lifted the layer off the card base and turned it around. Hmmmmm….now my flamingo was upside down. Sigh!!! popped that pink bird off very carefully and decided to add the “You’re Flamazing!” sentiment under the flamingo’s legs. Adhered everything down once more and completed my card for the day.
Lots of thunderstorms early this morning but thankfully no severe weather like other areas in the US are experiencing. Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

You are so amazing to keep pushing to get where your vision is complete. The bird makes me smile.
Thanks, Bonnie, it was pretty comical to had to have redo the card twice. I was determined not to waste the card stock since it was a 5×7 card.
Your perseverance paid off. It turned out really cute.
LOL…how about it….I’m glad I saw that sun on the bottom of the sheet.
Your flamingo is really cute! I have that flamingo and it hasn’t been stamped in a while. Hopefully soon I will use it.
Thanks, Lisa, it is cute and really easy with the stencils.
I had to chuckle at your having to redo the card twice but it was worth it as the result is great. I like that sentiment too and it also made me smile.
Thanks, Johanna, the things we do. I figured I could have left it as is and sent to our youngest granddaughter. She might not have noticed but then again????
OMG what a cute creation! Well done my friend! Thanks so much for playing in our challenge at Can You Handle The Pressure … we appreciate your support and hope to see you again next challenge!
