Did you know there is a Firecracker flower?
So I figured, there has to be a Firecracker bird!
This weird bird burst onto my paper just in time for the 4th of July celebration in the States on Thursday!
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!
And happy 4th of July for those who are celebrating!

I took yesterday off from work to have a creative play day! YAHOO! 🙂
I had so much fun! I painted 33 different papers with acrylic paints without a Gelli-Plate.
I can’t wait to show you some of my discoveries in next Thursday’s COLLAGE series on my blog.
Here is a sample of the 33 papers I created, using a square punch:
Happy Weekend Friends!

Happy Independence Day!
Wishing you ALL a day celebrating WHAT and WHO you hold dear!! ❤💙❤

Today we lift our
beakers earthenware jugs… Celebrating Weird Bird Wednesday!
I have been posting a weird bird almost every Wednesday for over a year! Thank you Harold for introducing the idea! And thanks to ALL of you, my flock of followers! 😉
I decided to post the prehistoric “Beaker Bird” since it was wearing a cone-shaped
beaker hat for the occasion.
During prehistoric times, the Beaker Bird’s beak (try saying that three times fast!) was about the size of a large Cadillac… But as time evolved, its beak shortened to the size of a Mini Cooper.
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday! Cheers! 🙂

Well, I couldn’t resist a little wacky word play with this word of the day:
wing-ding – noun 1. a noisy, exciting celebration or party
Wendy Warbler wants to WOW all birds at Wednesday’s wild wing-ding!
Wendy’s wearing a wacky wardrobe while whistling, “Rockin Robin” and whirling wildly. I wonder will Wendy win?
What worldly words of wisdom would you give Wendy?
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
And HAPPY whistling! Tweet Tweet! 🙂
