Some greeting cards and doodling

Here are some greeting cards I have been making. These were made last week but I am just adding them today. I used Tim Holz birdcage die and another die birdcage, sorry can't remember the name at the moment. I found these wonderfull flower stickers at the dollar store. Both birds were printed twice then I cut the wing off and put a piece of foam tape to raise it's wing off the paper a bit, makes it more 3D looking. The background papers are from my stash and I painted and distressed the birdcages to make them look rusty and worn.
I made quite a few of these and will be giving them as little bundles of cards for gifts at Christmas or upcoming birthdays. Everyone seems to like  getting cards to give to others and surely a one of a kind you can't buy in any store.
I think cards are my favourite besides ATC's to make.
And don't laugh but I have been trying to do faces. I have seen a lot of these whimsical faces and I have been sitting ,when I was watching the Playoff hockey, trying my hand and patience at these.
I have drawn a lot of them and I think I am finally onto it.
Each one is different as all faces are. I love colouring their hair in different colours. Kind of makes me feel like a kid again.
I just made these tags and will probably use them down the road to attach to a gifty or maybe send with a swap I do.
I will do a better job next time for the backgrounds, they were just a quick and not really thinking about it
Isn't that what art is about?

Thanks for dropping by.
Oh and I love my wireless.
