House of Cards January Challenge ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was a good one. I am so very grateful to Mynn and Sue for letting me stay for another term at House of Cards Challenge. A new month means a new theme at House of Cards Challenge and our January Challenge is to use a colour scheme and/or embossing and here is the card I created especially for this challenge and below is how and why it came about …
I had to let the birds out to be played with!
He and his hat was a perfect match for the embossing folder and the die!
I love this card and my birds and my HOC teammies!
Created for me and especially for these Challenges

Some of the DT have returned and we have new Design Team members too. Go over to House of Cards Challenge and take a look. When I sat down to create this card I knew I had to follow the colours or embossing (I used both BTW) but I realised I wanted to create a celebration card. To celebrate my second term and I just had to use the Crazy Bird and Crazy Birds Things to do that. I knew he had to have a party hat, I wanted to use a NBUS embossing fold and this moustache folder always makes me smile. So my Crazy Bird is popping out from behind the aperture because he’s having a lovely time at the party! My card is my celebration and to celebrate the New Year too!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon. ttfn Karen x
