Hi all,

I hope your Sunday is a bit sunnier than it is here.  We have horrible wind and rain and it's very dark and dismal. Definitely a day for staying in, so with the ironing done, I've managed a little bit of crafting this afternoon.

Inspired by the RSPB bird watch that we participated in this weekend, (thank goodness we did it yesterday as there are absolutely no birdies flying about today!), I've made a card that fits 3 Challenges ...

Less is More - Sketch challenge
CAS on Sunday - Lovey Dovey
CASology - Contrast


Supplies Used
DP is Indigo Bleu cut with SU Framelit
Foliage Flourish is a Cheery Lynn die
Sentiment is Hobbycraft, gold embossed
Birds are Memory Box die, cut from gold miri

And some birdies from our garden ...

Mr Robin

Okay, that's me for today, thanks so much for popping in.

Suze xx

Beautiful card, love that flourish you have used. Wonderful photos of your birdies, haven't seen a chaffinch here for ages. Enjoy your Sunday, even if it is dark and dismal - here it's cloudy and windy! Hugs, Valerie

This makes a super Anniversary card. The little gold birdies are super.

We walked Jess along the beach today whilst Holly was ice skating with a friend. Brrrr.
