August final bird ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  I will try not to use these birds so much in September, apologies, I did become very obsessed with them lol!  Here is my final post for August …

Back to A6 and lots of bits and bobs added to this one
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Allsorts Challenge #378 Use At Least Two Dies
Crafty Boots Challenge Sunshine Colours
Fantasy Stampers Challenge #70 Sunshine Colours: I used Dina Wakley stamps
Stamping Sensations Challenge August Anything Goes
The Corrosive Challenge #8 August Hot, Hot, Hot Summer

This card came about because the bird was stamped and coloured and the die cuts were cut from white card snippets so I decided to do a finishing bird for August with the promise that after tomorrow’s post I won’t use this bird stamp set again for the rest of September, lol, obsessed is a bit of an understatement so I am going to put this stamp set away and get my new stamps out to play with lol! 

My huge thanks goes out to the lovely Jane of Jane’s Journal for picking these colours as the theme at Country View Crafts Challenge for this month as I have loved playing with my richer and hotter colours this month and in fact quite a few of these colours were inspired by Jane as she is not afraid of colour like I can be lol!

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

Fabulous card, your little bird reminds me of the European Robin, a big favourite in our house at Christmas. It is lovely to see him here with the hot, sunny colours. Thank you for playing along with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.
