A tweet little bird

Apologies for pic,had to put the light on as it's quite dull today so his little feet cast a shadow.I don't make many easel cards so I've kept it simple .I only wanted to put the red gems on alternate scallops but sods law it couldn't be done that way. Whilst I've been doing this post the dark clouds have rolled in and it's raining ,we don't get nearly enough so I'm not complaining.
UPDATE ,it's twelve noon .the rain has is blue,warm sunshine and my laundry is drying outside.

Christmas or winter birthday

I'm a bit disappointed with the pic ,the base card I used is pearlised grey but it looks more like kraft . Pearls,white glitter and this fab image from Tina Wenke . This card could be for a winter birthday or christmas which is why I haven't put a sentiment on the front.

Made Especially For You - week 3 -Make a card using only 3 colours - I've gone for grey,blue and white.

Orange - you either love it or hate it.

Ask anyone their least favourite colour and it's probably Orange.It's not a Spring /Summer colour ,it's too bright for Autumn and it never makes an appearance in Winter. Not a scrap of Orange in my wardrobe and I don't recall seeing any shop windows ablaze with this strong colour. Enough ranting ,my little card using Orange .

Unstampabelles challenge 13 - Celebrations -It's also their birthday so pop along and join in .

Friendship card

I've used my fav papers (gingham ,who doesn't love it) in yellow for the background and again in blue for the main panel .The flowers are from Beccy's Place and printed on yellow paper highlighted with yellow and white coloured pencils.Stitching is all faux and the sentiment is from Stampin Up.
