Proud Puffin

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors 

I hope you have had a good week. The weather has been very strange. One day we had snow and sun at the same time. We have managed to get out for walks and to do a bit of gardening. Our beautiful magnolia does create a lot of work. This year we have a bumper crop of petals that need clearing up before they go slimy. 

On Wednesday I came across an image of a puffin. I decided to make it into a card. 

I used my nautical paper pad that I got from The Works some time ago. I can't believe shops are going to be open again next week. What a strange year we have all had. 

I think he came from a National Trust book. Doesn't he look fantastic? I would love to see some puffins in the wild. One time when we were staying in Torquay they had a beachside Avery(it is no longer there). We had a lovely visit and they had a group of puffins that you could even see swimming under the water. 

I felt that the bottom of the card could do with some added detail. So I cut some of my seaweed dies. 

There is even a bit of room to add a sentiment when I know who this card will be going to. 

Have a great weekend. 
We are hoping to see our daughter and son-in-law again. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Some great makes this week JACKIE I loved the tag and such a pretty card for the 80th Birthday card This puffin image is so clean and sharp It’s lovely
Easter was perfect We visited my daughter It was our grandson’s first birthday A very strange year for her Having baby in the first lockdown and not able to celebrate his birthday as she’d have liked to She and her fiancé are doing an amazing job
I can’t believe the shops are opening tomorrow but I think I am going to leave it for a few days before I venture out Even though I have had both jabs I am still quite nervous
Take care x said...

A really cute card and I do like puffins. The dies that you have used at the base are really pretty too. This weather is quite freaky. Sunshine one minute and then snow the next and still pretty darn cold with it! Michelle x
