a WHAT???

A BIRD IN THE HAND
IS BETTER THAN
TWO IN THE BUSH!??!?

well, that's what came to mind when I saw this weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show....."OLD WIVES TALES" now I must say...I truly have no idea if it is a wive's tale but my brain got spinning and I had to create what I was thinkin' of!! you know how that is!

I knew I just had to use the Caged Bird Die....and my newest stamp "Finger" by Tim Holtz!

Don't you just love the Tree Sketch.....stamped on Silver painted Grungeboard, with Jet Black Archival ink....then cut out using my trusty Tim Holtz Scissors!!

All my pieces part just fit LOVE~R~LY on the 7 gypsies Book Cover which was bound using my handy dandy BIND~IT~ALL!!

SOOOOOOOOOO......put on your thinking caps for this challenge!! Can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Always love your pieces as they have an element of the wild and free about them. The tree, hand and bird are just great and make this book really special...fab make.
