Beccy's Place - Encore Week - Bird Song

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? My hubby is still working at home. We are still shopping for a few people. I am still doodling. Things in the garden are coming along nicely. Soon we will be able to have lettuce in our sandwiches. I have just planted some potatoes. I don't usually do things like this but I figured I would be home to look after them this year. I can't see us going on holiday at all.

This is Encore week at Beccy's Place the set of images I was sent to use was the Bird Song set. I loved using these images. They came in very useful for cards I needed to make. Today, being one of Beccy's Blog Contributors, I am featured on the Blog. As you can see HERE. 

I love the main image just as it was. I added some extra papers and some die cuts using the Leafy Flourish die set from the John Next Door range. The sentiment is one of his dies too. 

I created a background on the computer for the bird silhouette. The sentiment comes with the set. That ribbon has been in my stash for ages but it looks great here.  

Here is the main image again on a much simpler card. It does work well. 

Finally another card with the silhouette. I added a sentiment from another of Beccy's set and the music notes were die cut. There is that ribbon again. 

There are still images from the set I haven't used. I think I will be using this set a lot. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Enjoy the rest of your week

Morning Jackie, I love these cards today, they feel more like a 'nod' to all the birds singing and nesting and working so hard in the gardens, I have always loved to watch nature but more so during this awful time. Your cards are perfect for the times we are in, just beautiful.xx

Your cards are great! And so different from each other! You used your stamp and die set perfectly. I like the soft, elegant, brownish cards and also the more cheerful pink ones.
Thanks for sharing all of your creations with the Daring Cardmakers this week.
