A little bird told me...

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Happy Thursday even though it is rather wet outside. It is good to be able to be inside crafting I don't have to feel guilty for  not getting on with the gardening.

I made today's card with papers and a topper from the June issue of Making Cards magazine. 

 

I just loved the bird toppers in the magazine. We get Long- tailed Tits in our garden from time to time they come in a group and they are very chatty, in a birdy way. The heart paper came from the magazine and I matched it with bits and pieces in my stash.


This is such a pretty image the colour is my favourite. I cut the mats around the image with my Spellbinders matting basic dies, I find them so useful. 


The round sentiment was created with a LOTV free stamp I got with a magazine a while back.


You won't see many buttons on my cards as I have a bit of a phobia about them. I thought these suited the card so well that I made an exception.


I had a special reason for buying this magazine my card is featured on the readers page. It is the one with the lighthouse on I will be sharing on my blog properly  soon.


I hope you enjoy the rest of the day. I am going back to the craft table to work on a commission that I am finding a bit tricky it is an A4 card for a man. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  4. Gorgeous card! and I love those buttons. Perhaps I haven't told you before, but I am a button-aholic!! Lol, I think that's my first embellishment on every card I ever make. Maybe it will rub off on you a little.
