Secret Crafter Challenge

Hi everyone

Been a bit lazy this week - too much time in front of the telly watching the birdies on Springwatch. Everything's happening out there in the garden. The starlings and sparrows are bringing their fledglings to get fed, they're eating me out of house and home. It doesn't matter how many times I see it, I always love watching them.

This is the first card I've made since Sunday. I thought I would have a go at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which is pink, turquoise and a hint of brown. Got quite a lot of brown in here but I think it might be ok. Also I think it should be alright for Allsorts Challenge Blog Wk 3 which is Curly Swirly since my paper is all swirly. I did some stamped swirls on the inside but when I put the nesties oval on, it's ended up looking like some kind of strange winged animal thingie! Never mind, it's a swirl.


Card Recipe:

Image: Sarah Kay - My Sweet Lili
Coloured with watercolour pencils
Papers: Basic Grey Eva
Cardstock Papermania
Flowers punched with Daisy Punch
Brads from stash
Anitas ribbon

Oval nesties
Inkadinkadoo flourish stamps
Fiskars Threading Water punch

I'm off to the Artstamps show on Saturday. Hope it's a sight better than last year, otherwise I'll be looking for a refund on the entry money!

Don't think I'll get another one made before the weekend, so have a good one.

Thanks for dropping by.


I am editing this post because I can't believe that I forgot to enter this card for the challenge over at Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog. It's their birthday this week and all the DT are giving away a fab candy as well as the usual Saturday Challenge prize. It was another of Jo's fab sketches. So, please excuse my being so silly. I would blame it on getting older and being more tired but I think it's more to do with my daughter rushing me when she's helping me with the posting!

Hi Lynne this is gorgeous love those colours and the image you have done really well with this one. I have the same thing going on here with the babies some are still being fed by mum in fact a daddy blackbird his feeding his baby and is down collecting as many sultanas as he can before the influx of Starlings who by comparison are a noisy bunch but like you I love it. The blackbirds are used to me now and don't mind it when I am in the garden I am talking to them all the time especially one female Blackbird who comes down every morning to say hi.
