Tweet, tweet....

or should that be sweet, sweet?, as I have candy on offer. I have spent a very enjoyable morning, while the rain has come down outside,indulging in making a little wooden hanging bird with distress inks, rock candy crackle paint, dotty stamps, and the crown! The wings are from Mr Holtz's Flourishes die set, and coloured with Rusty Hinge and Barn Door. The crown is painted with Viva Decor Precious Metal in red.
 I am a great lover of those penny sweets that you get in sweet shops, (you know the kind, pink shrimps, blackjacks, flying saucers) and I often buy 50p bags and munch my way through them before I am even home! But the candy on this page is of the crafting kind, and a must for anyone who loves competitions. All you have to do is comment, and add the candy to your sweet shop to be in it twice. I am giving away a Tim Holtz die, and a new wooden bird that we have in the shop, along with the darling little crown to add to your bird.
I shall pick the winner on Monday 10th May.
Hoping you are having a great Bank Holiday weekend despite the rain!
Hugs

What a wonderful way to spend a dull and rainy morning. It's so wonderfull bright and cheery - who would care about the rain with a bird such as yours to hang in their craft room - and a 'twin' to decorate too.

Oh dear - why does

Two little dickie birds sitting on the wall

One named Peter,one named Paul

Fly away Peter. Fly away Paul

Come back Peter, Come back Paul

Ah.........that's brought back happy memories of you children's childhood, and also the play group I used to run when they were small.

Off to add a widget to my side bar.

Thanks for the chance of joining in

love your bird, and the little crown is fantastic, finishes it off perfectly. Penny sweets, oh that brings back so many memories, I used to love cherry lips, refresher chews (which I still buy now and say they are for the children, when they are for me really). Great candy by the way. Have a great Monday, Tracy Evans x x
