I want to be you when I grow up!!

 Only one card today. I have been off for a bit as I have been under the weather.
Now boredom is setting in. I have done lot of colouring but not made any cards
as I found trying to make cards and coughing don't go together too well.

Bit like my photography here.
I had an instant inspiration when I saw the CASology Challenge Week 245 GROW

I have a stamp set, yes another NBUS with the perfect images and sentiment
for my interpretation.  Now just ignore the crookedness of the photo please.

The stamps and sentiment are from a Paper Smooches set. I decided the little bird needed
to be standing on his buddies head so the big bird could see him. The big bird already had
funny eyes. One bigger than the other.

BUT I found these googly eyes in the dollar shop and couldn't resist them. No plain
black and white eyes for me. I got the ones with eyelids (notice how they match
my bird as well) in colour and eyelashes. 

PS The sentiment is straight, its the photography thats wonky.

I coloured the birds with Copics and the big bird is with my new favourite flower
colour combination. You will have to wait to see the flowers on a card later
as the has just about finished me off. 
I didn't want to miss the CASology challenge as it closes tonight for me.
Finished off the card with the gem heart just to stress how much that little bird
loves and admires big bird.

My son thought it was hilarious with these eyes so I hope you enjoy it too. I hope you have enjoyed your visit and come and visit again soon. 
Card making will be up and running again from tomorrow I hope. Take care.

Your card totally cracked me up! Love those big ol' googly eyes, the brightly coloured bird and those sweet little chicks. Such a great idea for the cue word. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

Hahaha ... Aileen, this is hilarious ... LOVE that googly eyed big bird, especially with contrasting 'eye shadow' on her different sized eyes ... one of a kind! Not surprised those little chicks want to grow up to be just like her! Hugs, Anita :)
