Free as a Bird

Yesterday I was quite pleased that I had to stay at home because the weather started out by being just a bit damp but deteriorated into being extremely wet and dreary as the day went on.  Just the sort of day for sitting by the fire doing a bit of stamping, colouring and fussy cutting.  I finished up with a bird, a branch and a selection of blossom and leaves which I then turned into this card.  I found some pretty background paper, die cut two shapes and embossed the smaller, white one before arranging the bird and blossoms in what I hope is a pleasing way.  Found an odd strip of pink card which I die cut on both edges to form a border, finally adding a birthday sticker. Blue skies and sunshine so far this morning but the forecast doesn't look good - mind you it is October so I suppose we can't hope for endless summer weather.

  1. Hi Val

    Our weather wasn't brilliant yesterday either .. .. and today isn't very promising either.

    Love your beautiful bird image. Your fussy cutting is always so amazing and neat .. .. even around those super skinny bird's legs.

    Enjoy today.

    Love Jules xx
