It's TOOS-Day! :)

What a wacky, whimsical kind of day this has been!
The sit back and just laugh kind of day ~
indeed an original TOOS-day!
That's a cross between the humorous cartoon character I feel like
and the reality of a busy, odd day ... hee hee!
One of the things I challenged myself to do this year
(in the year of Endurance),
I wanted to play along with some of the challenges I find refreshing
 There are a couple of stamp companies that just bring
 a wonderful integrity and refreshing burst of faith to the table
and I hope to give them a little bit of recognition in my little corner of blog world :) 
From the Heart Stamps is just one of those companies ~
lots of fabulous little digi stamps with a little something
for everyone, from the funny ones to the ones filled with faith.
They have a monthly progressive challenge where if you buy/have the
stamp from the month before, and you play along,
you will receive the one for the next month.  A win/win!
So, using this charming Birthday Candle Birdbrain,
I created a simple yet cheery "bird-day" card :)
I wasn't sure where I was going with my card design at first,
so I decided to 'wing it' - haha, get it?  LOL!
This set was so full of wonderful sentiments,
it was hard to know what to chose.
Here's my Bird-day card:

and the inside:
Off to get dinner on the table for my hungry crowd.
And would you believe it is ........
I know, that's just messed up, right :)
Fortunately, I am making a brand new honey lime Dijon
recipe using fresh lemons and limes from my daughter's tree that is overflowing with fruits!
I'll let you know how they like it
(I'll be having a salad, NO CHICKEN for me!)
If it's a hit,
I'll post the recipe :)
I'll enter this card in the FTHS Monthly Challenge and
Clear it out Challenge - Birthdays (Stash - crochet flowers)
Oldie but Goodie Challenge - (Buttons + crochet flowers x3 years old!)
Tuesday Throwdown - Anything Goes
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

    Have a wonderful and blessed day.

  16. Adorable bird - he either looks like he got burned by the candle wax and is crying (happens to me every Christmas at our candlelight church service), or sweating under heavy weight of the candle. Super cute! I love the colors too.
