Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and have enjoyed your day. We had warmth and sunshine..can you believe it, it's the 1st of October???
Well I'm here with the next Challenge for the CCC and this post will be scheduled for tomorrow. I nearly missed the date as somehow I thought it was next Sunday, and if I hadn't seen Lorraine's post I would have been very late indeed. Where has the time gone...ney! where has the year gone??
This time Mrs. A, our lovely Valery wants to see cards with Festive Birds on them, here is what I came up with;
A Cardinal Bird image, digital but not sure where from, water coloured and matted on to card cut with a Tonic die set. Embossilicious Folder, twine and some gems. The sentiment was part of a Candy win from Lorraine, and such a useful sentiment it is.
Now this is a lovely image from Kanban which I've had for ages and not used, as it's a Christmas stamp, I take it the bird is a Robin, but with his back towards the front. Coloured with Pencils this time, decoupaged the holly for a wee bit of dimension.
Always love using bird images so thank you Valery for choosing this them.
On my own with Teallach this weekend, Alistair away for the traditional October Adventure, still while he is away playing, I was away buying, heee heee. Bought a sewing machine, been wanting one for a while, like years and I've hummed and hemmed as to whether It would get used, and if I had room for it. Well I eventually worked out that it would and I have. Not an all dancing, singing one, I leave that sort to my friend Dale as she is a sewer, in fact I think she took a mortgage out for hers. This one is a level up from basic, and a Singer. So I'm happy, just trying how to work out" oh but I've had it for ages dear" sort of statement for when the Adventurer gets home. Somehow I don't think it'll work this time.
Do visit the other ladies of the club if you have time and see their lovely cards on this theme.
Thank you all for your visits and your kind comments on my last card.
See you soon, cheerio for now,
Book-card with flowers
