Tag and Journal Page

Hi All hope you are feeling happy and well today. Thank you for calling in and making this sunny day even brighter.

Go Tag Thursday have Birds/ Birdhouses as their theme for this week


I can't resist these little bird digi stamps that are free here. I printed out the image and coloured it then added some holly berries and leaves that I drew.

Karen is so generous and who could resist anyone who says this when asked Why she gives her work freely

'I got the question -Why? Why do you do this?
And there's a very simple answer to this -because I want to.
I love drawing 
I love making people happy and if drawing something and beeing able to share it makes someone happy
then that makes me happy.
Making someone happy makes me happy. 
 Simple as that. '

Art Journal Journey have an interesting theme this month chosen by Susi
You can make a collage of anything--well almost anything- you mustn't use a face, leaves or wings.


I made a digital collage today with things I have had in folders for years.

Have a great day all

We have people coming for lunch so lots to do.

Love Chrissie xx

Such a cute tag Chrissie - lovely people share for free ... other's just want to sell - you are right with your words ... it's better to make a gift than to get one.. it makes one happy- but there are not all people with a golden heart out there!
I know you have one - since you give always all your support to everyone who needs!
Thank you for this stylish page for the no no no theme !
I wish you a happy Friday Chrissie!

The bird is sooooooo cute, the tag looks fabulous and fun.
Love the journal page and the ever so stylish shoe. Wish I could still feel comfortable in heels.
Hope you have a lovely day.

That little bird is adorable and I adore it. I understand Karen and her desire to share with others. It's a way of giving back to a community that supports her. I adore her drawing and it's a much cuter bird than some that are sold by a big name company.

Had to laugh at your idea of collage can be anything except - - - . Seems those are the things most of us grab for when we make a collage (grin). Loved your interpretation, though.
