Kingfisher?? Nope! It's a HOOPOE!

A friend wrote and told me this is a Hoopoe - and I discovered this about it from Wikipedia:  "The hoopoe was classified in the clade Coraciiformes, which also includes kingfishersbee-eaters, and rollers."  It is the National Bird of Israel and is NOT kosher!  LOL!  I guess not - we don't eat Eagles either!

This is another quickie male card idea using a freebie from Create with TLC.  I like the vintage feel of the colors and the torn edges - elevated it on foam over Kraft base CS and then used twine and a wooden star button [from stash] to embellish it.

The inside is a simple sentiment on plain paper leaving lots of room for a note.

  4. Oh, WOW!!! This is different from your usual 'look', true, but like everything your do, it's STUNNING!!! Love, love, love the vintage look!!! With vintage it's easy to overdo (IMHO); your's is perfectly rendered, uncluttered, elegance. Such a great design, my friend.

  5. Awesome card Ginny. I love the monochromatic look. Great information on this bird. Very creative and so glad you shared over at Inspiration Destination.
