A bluebird

Happy Sunday folks,

Today I've a wee card for you for this week's Less is More Challenge. It's a one layer week and the theme is "Fur or Feathers".

Well, you know what they say about working with animals - for some reason this week's challenge had me in a pickle.  To start with I don't seem to have many animal or bird stamps and what I do have, just didn't appeal to me. So, although I'm not overly enthused by my entry this week - it's what you're getting. Lol!

So here are some feathers ...



Bird stamp is by Andy Skinner, stamped in Brilliance Sky Blue. Sentiment is PC generated.

and here is some fur ...



We were at Edinburgh Zoo yesterday, here is Mr Panda busy stuffing his face - Mrs Panda was having her afternoon nap!

Thanks for popping in, sorry I didn't have much time to come visit you last week.

Edit: The song - "Groovy Kind of Love" has just popped into my head - I like the Mindbenders version from 1965 but you youngsters might be more familiar with Phil Collins version in 1988...

"When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do is take a look at you, then I'm not so blue ......."

TTFN

Suze
Your card works so well, surely you are delighted with the results!
So you have met Mr Panda :) I've not had the chance to see them but was enthralled watching the footage of them arriving in Edinburgh and then the hopes for the patter of little panda paws (which was not to be!).
TFS
Wishes

Yours is a charming card, would bring a smile to many a face.

Mr Panda looks very relaxed there chomping on his bamboo. Sure you had a lovely day there. XOXO Zoe

Your bird card is gorgeous, and so is the colour. The panda is evidently having a good time watching the visitors....Hugs, Valerie

The card is just beautiful in its simplicity. Great idea to add those words--if anyone is feeling blue it would be just the right card to send.

Love Chrissie xx
