Bird is the word!

Actually it is the theme for the current Cards in Envy Challenge.  I just picked up 2 Inkadinkadoo sets at a discount store and both have birds.  So I used one of the images for this card:
(When I stamped 'thinking of you' on the white piece, I got some ink where I didn't really want it.  So I blocked the sentiment and then carefully added sections of the main image to hide the whoopsie.)

I'm also entering the card in the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge Blog - N is for newest stamp or decoupage
Delicious Doodles Challenge #50 - Birds of a Feather
Jellypark Challenge - Things that Fly

Tip Top Tuesday Challenge #108 - Initials  "D" designer paper + dotted paper ; "B" black +
birdbath stamp  (Tip: Use a small punched scalloped square, diagonally cut in 4 pieces, to make decorative corner pieces.)

If you read my blog regularly, you know that my grandsons (ages 6 +8) were here Thursday afternoon.  They came with the following agenda:
I think we fit everything in,  plus a few extras like baking and icing a cake.  
Here is the arts and crafts project, I managed to get a picture before the nose cone got any more dented.
Notice the silver rivets are candies from my stash.
