Hats off to Budgie!

The Three Muses: Ann’s turn this week to provide the theme and corresponding fab digital eyecandy! She chose “Hats“, cleverly using the quote: ‘If you want to get ahead, get a hat!’… Nice!!

I have a friend whose nickname is Budgie. I have a stamp of a budgie in a top hat, tails and pantaloons… perfect! Both the Budgie-boy and the skelly are from Third Coast RS; the postmark on the flower is too… The background is the “B” page from an old address book and the barbed wire stamp is by Home Impressions on the Gothic Plate.


The whole thing is mounted on a photo frame card insert, purchased from the Scrapstore. The German Scrap wings (Paper Artsy) are ‘spares’ for the boy!! 😉

  2. Well, if this isn’t the cutest danged budgie! (I have to admit I didn’t know what a budgie was until Ozstuff explained it to me a couple of years ago. Here we call them parakeets). But, I digress…this is a unique and clever entry. I love it!

  3. Wow Rosie.

  5. So a budgie is a parakeet? He’s very dapper in his top and tails!

  6. Rosie, what a fabulous piece. Love the budgie. I knew it was a parakeet but had forgotten that. Your barbed wire stamp is wonderful.

  7. You beat me to it, Faye! I was just thinking about Rosie’s fab barbed wire stamp, looking at this piece! It really does look excellent here! I love the budgie! Bev, I just learned the “b” word a couple of months ago when someone commented on a parakeet in one of my pieces! Rosie, he looks so dapper in his top hat and tails!! Elegant gentlemen’s colors too, the tan and hunter’s green! I’ll shut-up now, but had to let you know how great this is!!! I love it!! XOXO
