A Little Birdie Told me........


Morning blogger's,

I've been busy busy clearing and cleaning through my 'sewing/craft' room!! I've gone through my fabric stash and got that down to four big plastic tubs and two small ones, which is pretty good! Sorted through all kinds of paper too......who needs to keep all this stuff when you have a good Internet connection. My magazines should be next but I just can't bring myself to thin them out.....yet!
The boss is all for re-organising the layout down here too, so new cupboards and book shelves might just be the order of the day ....... I better get it right!

I did make a card last night to post today. I've used a Whiff of Joy stamp from the Birdie Love collection so this card is going into this weeks challenge #75 at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog. The challenge is to use yellow, green and one other colour.
I've used a layout from CPS so this will also go into their challenge #162 .

American Craft card has been used as well as dp from Kaisercraft's Lilac Avenue Collection. A Cuttlebug embossing folder 'Birds and Swirls' was used for the yellow mat and all card edges were sponged with distress ink antique linen.

The image has been stamped onto PL card in pure white with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured with Copic Markers. A Sakura clear glitter pen was used to add some sparkle to the flowers in her hair. To complete the sketch I added the three amethyst gem brads from Kaisercraft.

Thanks for popping by today I'll be back on Friday with this weeks AnnaBelle Stamps post. You still have a week to join in on the sketch challenge, with a stash of ribbon as the prize.

Till Friday..........
