Time Flies

What a week I am having!  Do you ever feel as if time just slips away?  Well this week is just flying by, but I am surely enjoying every moment!  Received some new stamps from Rogue Redhead Designs and my wings flew in from The Funkie Junkie Boutique (along with some other Funkie goods).  Found a little play time and here is what happened!
The background was Distressed Inked, embossed and then highlighted.  Some spritz and flick and then some quick slip/slap with crackle.  This actually adds a little interest and a sealed effect, but no real cracking.  Obviously if you want the detail of crackle, apply a thicker coat!  Sorry about the picture quality, we had a day that was quite overcast!
The pocket watch was cut, inked and clear embossed!  The time piece was stamped in Coffee Archival, inked with Distress and clear embossed and cut with a circular die and placed on top of Tim's die.  The wings were die cut from a left over Tim's paper packaging.  For this I only used the two smaller wing pieces!  Love those layered wings!  A little crackle, inking and shading.  The "Time Flies" was computer generated.
Are these birds adorable or what??  I miss my Fred and at this point in my life, the only birds I will have are those on paper or in my yard, so I could not resist these cuties!  Stamped and colored with Distress, fuzzy cut and mounted with some foam and a trimmed toothpick on the back for the branch. 
This week is also spending time with a lovely friend from across the pond and also a fellow blogger, DT sister "Brenda Brown."  Here we are after have a quick meet up for dinner on there return with friends from a Santa Barbara trip!  On Saturday we are going to do some very serious damage shopping and of course fitting in some eating time!  How fun to meet up with the friends we make in our little blogging world! 
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are taking advantage of those precious moments!  Will return on Saturday with more adventures from "Brenda and Terry."
