House of Cards September ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well, nearly the weekend again lol! It’s the first of the month and that means a new challenge at House of Cards. We have a choice for you this month and here it is …
Now you all know that I am having a bird love fest right now, crumbs that sounds wrong, but you know I mean I’m having a bird phase, and I incorporated the colours too and here is my card …
A nice square card love the colours!
The papers from CWC and another snippet from my stash were meant to be!
I adore this image, so lovely but not twee or cute lol!
Lots of lovely old embellishments
A final look
Luckily for me I can also link up to the following Challenges
Scrapy Land Challenge #48 Use a stamp or digital image: I used Spellbinder dies
I got to play with my Dina Wakley Scribbly bird stamp set again along with two of my AquaTints colour sets. I also managed to use a fair bit of my old stash so I am happy about that lol!
I think the leaf behind the bird was an impulse purchase from The Works and I think I purchased them last year. I saw these lovely leaves and thought they would come in handy. It was only after I got home and opened the pack that I realised they were, in some way, really plastic, grr! I was determined not to bin them so I spent a little time altering them and I am happy with the end result. I need to remember that there are times when I can alter or improve shop bought embellishments. Hopefully that will encourage me to use more of my very old stash.
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
