Thank Crunchie it's Friday!!!!
It's a nice feeling knowing that there's two whole days before it's back to work,I know I didn't have work today but today doesn't count as I've had house work to do.The reason for my post title is that when I was a little girl,my family regularly had old fashioned sing songs,my great uncle played a squeeze box and used to belt out some old favourite hits of his youth. "She was a sweet little dickie bird" and "My Old Man (said follow the van)" In my head I always pictured the "Old Cock Linnet" to be in a little cage like this.
I made this card last weekend,toying with the idea of using it for my DT post for Scrapbook Sisters' black and white challenge but changed my mind.I won this "Love nest birdcage stamp" by Glitz from Karen Wray,it was amongst the ribbon and lace blog candy and it winged it's way to me all the way from Australia. I've been itching to stamp it up but ended up trialing so many ink pads till I got an image I was happy with. Any advice on the best ink pad to use for this would be gratefully received,I don't even know which one I ended up with here. Anyway,a really simple layout using remnants from my drawer,and some black bling.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Pixie Cottage 8,Something new,
Crafty Purple Frog,Mono moments,
Crafts And Me 35,Anything goes,
Stampin Royalty 72,Birds,
A Spoonfull Of Sugar 152,Anything goes.
Hope to see you again soon,
Thanks for stopping by,
