New Home Birdy

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How has your week been so far? I can't believe it is Thursday already. Where does the time go?

Today I am sharing another card that I have made using the paper and toppers from the June Issue of Making Cards magazine. I just love the cute bird images.


This started with a 7" x 7" white card blank. I used some Centura Pearl royal blue card to go between the mats of the papers from the magazine. I liked how there was some gingham in the image that matched the gingham paper. The ribbon came from my stash. Did you noticed I have used buttons again? Maybe I am cured of my phobia.


The images in the magazine are so bright, cheerful and cute. I decided to make it into a new home card it could just as easily be a birthday card. I cut the sentiment with some Britannia word dies.  


This was quite a quick card to make it was so lovely to have papers to hand that matched the image so well. 

I hope the rest of the week is kind to you.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  25. Hi Jackie
    These are lovely images to work with and you have made a stunning card. Now I'm starting to get worried about the buttons - for a start how come you have soooo many with your phobia! I think you have become desensitised !
    Love Diane xxx
