A Little Bird Told Me




Another promising day, we've had beautiful weather which has meant I've been busy outside . We had some bad news at the beginning of the month and I didn't feel much like crafting, apologies to those I follow for a lack of comments.

I had a play yesterday and this card using a House Mouse image from the Triple CD from Joanna Sheen a Crafter's Companion Embossing Folder and a sentiment from Lili of the Valley. I decoupaged the holly leaves, it was a quick make as I kept it really simple using the sketch from SSW2 as inspiration

  3. Aww this image is SO adorable Meg… I love the holly wreath… the decoupage gives it a wonderful 3D effect. Gorgeous ribbons and the gentle embossing adds texture and interest. I like the way you've kept the hearts at the top, as it balances out with the scalloped edges at the bottom if you know what I mean. Just perfect!
    I'm sorry you've been through a rough time lately…but I'm glad that you're getting back into your crafting again.
    Thanks for joining us at MAWTT for our CAS Challenge! :-)
    Love and Hugs, Sue B
