FLAPPY BIRDBRAIN's

Good Evening!
I've been to a funeral today. A neighbour that I lived near when first married many years ago..He kept hens and we looked after them whilst he went on holidays.. when he was to old to drive he still delivered eggs all over our village and beyond.....Married twice and had two 25 years Anniversaries. He died last week in his sleep a couple of days before his 102 nd Birthday. A Celebration of a Wonderful life....




Now this little cutie lives at From The Heart Digital Stamps they are called Flappy Birthday Birdbrain there's also four sentiments to go with it..I got my image Free! cause I enter the progressive challenge over on their blog..This ones September!    Coloured with Copics..Grass I used pencil...Distressed sky with Broken China...Balloon paper-pieced. Papers from stash...I know the little bird on the floor is green/yellow? That's cause he fell when his  balloon popped!  lol.
