I am on holiday, at least until tomorrow, and had been hoping to do a few posts and catch up on my commenting. Unfortunately, that hasn't happened. My grandmother has had health issues and we are all feeling rather ragged. I'm glad I was able to be here and lend a little help, but it means that many things we intended to do have fallen by the way. So here is my one and only desert island offering. That's what I call it when I am away from my stash and crafting with limited resources. It does tend to inspire improvisation though......
For this card I used Prima Something Blue papers, PaperArtsy JOFY 15 stamps, a black ink pad, a red sharpie and a piece of ribbon. I started by stamping half a tree on the RHS and then half a tree on the LHS. Then I stamped off the rest of the ink around the bottom and sides of the card. I added the three spiky flower stamp. I stamped the bird and the bird box, fussy cut both, added some colour to the bird and set him behind and through the bird box hole. He actually reminds me of a really fat robin I once saw that looked like a tennis ball with wings. Very little wings!! I added the sentiment and then went a little crazy around the edge with the black ink pad, and some artistic smudges.
